NRA Gun of the Week: Walther Arms Creed 9 mm Luger Pistol

posted on March 25, 2017

Walther has been building firearms for the battlefield and the homestead for more than 100 years, evolving from steel-on-steel to polymers. Now, with the Creed, Walther is offering a quality and value-driven product in one package. This pre-cocked, double-action, recoil-operated and hammer-fired pistol is built around modern gun-building principles and with the latest materials. The Creed utilizes an ergonomic frame and grip along with melded controls, good sights and a rail for accessories. Also, the Creed’s slide and barrel have been treated with Tenifer, a robust coating that provides for corrosion and abrasion resistance, as well as a harder and tougher matte black surface than traditional gun bluing. In the latest NRA Gun of the Week video, American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach just had to take a closer look at the impressive number of features packed into a pistol that sells for under $400.
