NRA Gun of the Week: Walther CCP M2 Pistol

When it was introduced in 2014, the Walther CCP 9 mm semi-automatic pistol received high praise from users for its excellent ergonomics and shootability, which can be partly attributed to the CCP's trademark Softcoil gas-delayed blowback system. Ease of use and comfort aside, a common complaint about the CCP was a high level of difficulty in field stripping and cleaning. Walther's latest iteration of the Concealed Carry Pistol—the CCP M2—seems to have resolved that issue, having incorporated a tool-free takedown mechanism in the rear of the slide. Don't believe it? Check it out for yourself in this week's NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by Christopher Olsen.
