New for 2021: Walther Arms PDP

Walther Arms has always been known for its incredibly comfortable, ergonomic handgun designs, and the latest model from the company launched in 2021 doesn't disappoint on that front. The Walther Performance Duty Pistol (PDP) is an all-new lineup that incorporates some of the best features ever found in a Walther handgun.

One of the highlights of the Walther PDP is its milled slide, which is designed to accept a range of popular red-dot sights when used with the correct mounting plate. When you buy a Walther PDP, you're entitled to a free mounting plate of your choice from Walther, which enables you to run the optic of your choice. As it comes from the factory, though, the milled slide cut is covered by a contoured cover plate that maintains the lines of the gun and gives you a clear view of the enhanced open sights.

Following the milled slide, the other story on the Walther Arms PDP is found in its ergonomics. In fact, the ergonomics of this gun are designed expressly for optimized use of a red-dot sight. The grip itself is contoured in such a way that it provides you with a natural aiming presentation, thanks to the position of your pinky finger and support hand. When you line the gun up with the target, that dot will drop right in your line of sight, enabling you to get shots of quickly and intuitively.

In addition to the grip contours, you'll also find an enhanced grip texture on the Walther Arms PDP. The Performance Duty texture is an exclusive design from Walther, which incorporates geometric tetrahedrons that allow you to gain impressive grip without experiencing the irritation found on more aggressive stippling and texturing. On the slide, Walther's incorporated what it calls SuperTerrain serrations, which have been raised above the flat plain of the slide to give you deeper cuts that promote control over your slide and give you greater grip.
