Walther Updates P22 Pistol with New Safety System

Walther Arms's updated P22 pistol, the P22QD, now features a new safety system. The pistol's ergonomics and reliability remain unchanged, however, there is an added de-cocking safety, updated safety markings from "S" and "F" to a traditional red dot, and the recoil spring is now fully captured.

With the new safety system, the pistol cannot be cocked with the safety on. If the firearm is cocked and then the safety lever is moved to the safe position, the hammer will safely let down, de-cocking the pistol. When the user is ready to fire, the safety lever can be placed in the fire position and then pull the SA/DA trigger to fire the chambered round. 

There are close to one million of the P22s in the possession of gun owners, and each P22 can be easily converted to a threaded barrel with an available aftermarket adapter (512105) that adapts the M8x.075 barrel to 1/2"x28 threads for a suppressor. All P22s, including the new P22QD, have a single-action/double-action trigger, a manual safety. California-compliant P22 models remain unchanged.
