SHOT Show 2018: Walther P22 QD Pistol

posted on January 24, 2018
New from Walther, the updated P22 QD offers the reliability of its predecessor while addressing the two main shortcomings of the original P22—an onerous takedown procedure and a decocker that required pulling the trigger on a chambered round. The company accomplished this by building a decocker into its frame-mounted manual safety mechanism and by redesigning the action to use a captured recoil spring. A semi-automatic pistol chambered in .22 Long Rifle, the P22 QD feeds from 10-round detachable box magazines, features interchangeable backstops, is available in several colors, and there’s even an SKU that comes paired with a laser sight from the factory.
