Walther PPQ M2 Description

The Walther PPQ is a short recoil-operated locked breech semi-automatic pistol that uses a modified Browning cam-lock system adapted from the Hi-Power pistol. The PPQ has a glassfiber-reinforced polymer frame and steel slide assembly. It can be broken down into its main parts or field stripped with a take down catch without the help of tools. The internal preset striker ‘Quick Defense’ trigger of the PPQ is a departure of previous Walther pistols and has been developed for the PPQ.[9] When the trigger is pulled the trigger bar engages a disconnect lever, which props up a sear hook, which releases the fully pre-loaded striker assembly, firing the pistol. Pulling the trigger does not partially load the striker spring as with the Glock and many other striker fired pistol designs. The PPQ trigger pull is entirely due to the trigger and disconnector springs. The PPQ has a trigger travel of approximately 9 mm (0.4 in) with a relatively short trigger reset of 2.5 mm (0.1 in) and a trigger pull of approximately 25 N (5.6 lbf). Unlike many other trigger systems, preset internal strikers have a let-off point and trigger pull that remains unchanged from the first shot to the last and requires no decocker. It should however be noted that the striker of the PPQ variant does not protrude from the back of the slide, as the firearm is in a constant cocked state.

    Q5 accuracy
    I just bought a Q5 match recently. Put a Burris fastfire 3 red dot on it,took it to the range and dialed it in. Fired all sorts of ammo without any problems and feels great in my hand. But what really impressed me about ...this gun was its consistant accuracy. I'm talkin stupid accurate, and with everything I put in it. I've never had a pistol this accurate right out of the box. A little more work with my speed drills and muscle memory and i'll be ready to start embarrassing people in the uspsa. Great gun walther. more

    Superb Shot
    Was going back n forth between several more popular 9mm. The PPQ 9 kept seemingly getting great reviews just not much chatter on them. Being someone who doesn't just want to be the 'glock' guy or sig guy...got this weapo...n. Man, it shoots so easy, so smooth, so accurate. Great mechanics, trigger pull is fantastic. Put my first 300+ rounds not a single misfeed either! Go for it! more

    Good choice for home protection
    This weapon has a good feel, comfortable, easy draw, is very balanced. Firing is quick with the fairly light pull which of course helps with accuracy. I'm very pleased with it.

    PPQ M2 just melts into your hand.
    I looked around for about a year at all of the offerings available from every manufacturer. 99+% of the PPQ reviews were VERY favorable so I decided to investigate for myself. When I held the PPQ in my hand, it conformed... so well. I was astonished. It felt as though they made the gun just for my hand. No other manufacturer's pistol even came close to the comfort level of the PPQ. Then I shot it and was even more impressed. That trigger is being heavily copied by everyone else now. It's just fantastic! After I warm up a bit, I can shoot 4 bullets per second from my PPQ with good accuracy.(Ride the reset!) Use good form on your grip and the gun will return exactly to where it started after every shot. This allows immediate target re-acquisition and faster shooting without sacrificing accuracy. The PPQ should be on your short list of guns to evaluate! more

    A Great .45
    I purchased the PPQ 45 because it fit my hand much better than a 1911. I like the fact that the back strap can be changed to fit the grip to different size hands. Extra back strap included in box. I took the gun down and... cleaned it before firing it. It is very simple to take down and maintain. At the range I fired 300 rounds and found it very hard to miss my target. The pistol's recoil is a bit whippy, but totally manageable. I used PMC and Federal 230 grain FMJ rounds. There were no failures to feed, fire or eject. The trigger is the best of any firearm I have ever used. The reset is insanely short and takes a bit to get used to. Double taps are very easy with this pistol. The PPQ .45 comes with 2, 12 round mags, a gun lock, a large back strap, a chamber flag, the target that the gun was test fired at Walther and a very good case. I would like the option of night sights and may change out the 3 dot sights in time. If one is looking for a .45, I would consider this pistol as an option. more

    Remarkable !
    Bought this after I bought a PPS-M2 , Very easy to shoot. Great feel. Smooth trigger. Very accurate. A very nice firearm to shoot. Went thru about 300 rounds so far and not one mishap. Very easy to breakdown for cleaning.... I'm a very happy customer. more

    Can't beat it. It's that simple
    I am a .45ACP shooter and carry it everyday. I have Glocks (21/30), M&P 45 2.0, etc. NOTHING beats the PPQ45. It is EXTREMELY accurate. I didn't know I could shoot so well until the PPQ45. It literally and commonly c...reates just one ragged hole about 1 or so inches in diameter after emptying the magazine, which for me is unusual. Meanwhile, my Glock 21, Glock 30, and M&P 45 2.0, all of which are excellent handguns, can't reproduce the same accuracy. And remember, the same guy (me) is shooting each gun and doing my best to be as accurate as possible. Why is that? Simple. THE TRIGGER! The PPQ trigger is, in my opinion, THE best off the shelf trigger in existence on a handgun today. Period! End of discussion. People spend lots of money on trigger upgrades with other handguns, yet those upgrades still cannot and do not surpass the standard trigger on the PPQ. They just don't! I was biased ... AGAINST Walther. Seriously, I actually did not want to like it so much. I've always liked the Glock and the M&P and the 1911 models. I wanted to NOT like the PPQ45, but facts are facts. BUT ... I do have one and only one complaint. I wish they had metal night sights. I think they do, but they generally come with adjustable polymer sights which are actually very good sights IF you don't care about night sights. However, night sights are available. I simply haven't been able to find them out of the box. I changed my sites on the PPQ45 I purchased. Also, I strongly recommend replacing the standard guide rod with a tungsten guide rod setup which IS available from after market suppliers. It did to reduce the "flip" of the gun, after which it became a true "tack driver". It also naturally after recoil falls right back on target. Frankly, the trigger is so "light" and nice and the reset so short, that I sometimes "accidentally" fire a second shot. But guess what? That second "accidental" shot, if it occurs, is RIGHT ON TARGET! If you get this gun be aware of the sensitivity and superiority of the trigger. Practice with it. I'm a "buy USA" kinda guy, but I must admit that the PPQ45 is simply difficult to beat. I've begrudgingly (really) had to admit to myself that the best gun I own to carry on a daily basis is the PPQ. I chose a carry gun based upon what I feel is the most capable gun to prevent my death. I literally choose my carry gun based upon NOT DYING. Where it is made doesn't matter if I die. Thus, I have to admit that the PPQ45 will become my primary carry gun because when and if I ever have to resort to drawing my weapon to defend myself or others, the superior accuracy, trigger, reliability, (no malfunctions after hundreds of rounds) and substantial magazine capacity (12+1) of the PPQ45 is difficult to surpass. I own numerous handguns. The PPQ45 is the best. It just is. It is the one on my hip. more

    Best Stiker Fired ever
    After 40 years of excellent use I decided to retire my superb Sig P220 as my home defense gun. I was going to replace it with a high capacity (15+ rounds) 9mm striker fired pistol with no external safety. Being used to a... good trigger on the Sig and my various competition 1911A models, I wanted a good trigger on whatever I chose. The problem is that striker fired handguns just don't have as good a trigger as a SA auto. I have a Glock 19 but even after a lot spent on it, it still wasn't very good. It also wasn't as reliable as so many attempt to claim. more

    Spoiled for the rest.
    I bought this in 9mm as my first gun. I wanted to start a new hobby, so I read alot of reviews and watched alot of Youtube videos. Everyone was right, this a fantastic gun. Shoots easy, breaks down super easy, fits reall...y great in my hand. Problem is, every other gun I try just doesn't measure up. I'm spoiled. I guess I will just have to stick with Walther! Maybe a .45 next. more

    PPQ rocks
    Bought my PPQ M2 9mm about three weeks ago. Have put 300 rounds through it. Not one jam. Love the feel of the grip, trigger is absolutely fantastic which makes it very accurate if you are aware of your shooting disciplin...e and it is a high-quality firearm. I put the first three shots into the red center of the target at 7 yards. Can't say enough about this handgun. Just buy it. You will not be disappointed. more

    hands down awesome pistol
    I've been putting several hundred rounds a month through my PPQ 4" 9mm and the 5" 9mm. Haven't had a single malfunction with any ammo and they have both had over 1000rds through them. The trigger is hands down ...the best trigger on the market. I just spent hundreds of dollars on a ZEV trigger on my glock and polished and adjusted and it still doesn't get close to the short reset and crisp, EXTREMELY crisp, trigger on these guns. For competitive shoots the only downside would be the magwell. Someone needs to make a decent magwell for these and you will see the G34 getting a run for its money on the IDPA circuit. I'll be in to Cabela's in a couple weeks to buy the .45 more

    To piggyback off my other review and the conceal-abilityof the pistol, I wanted to share a few quick photos. I'm 6'3, 190 lbs. While wearing a t-shirt, no one notices that I am carrying unless a family member hugs me and... bumps my lower back when bringing their arms down. more

    Excellent Trigger
    Pros: Best off the shelf trigger on the market possibly even after market triggers might not be able to compete. Excellent trigger reset, no creep, breaks crisp every time. very concealable (iwb/owb), low recoil, ergonom...ic grips allow for easy pointing to the target, reliable, easy to tell if a round is chambered, weight is similar to guns in the same size category. more

    Love it.
    I spent about a month researching different guns online, reading reviews, and watching YouTube videos. I narrowed it down to a few popular models that were well liked and went to my local range where I was able to shoot ...each different one. The PPQ felt the best to me and shot really well. After I bought the gun and chose the grips that I really liked this gun felt awesome to hold and shot just as well. Only downside is if you wanted it for CCW it is a little big, in my opinion, without bulky clothes. Would be a great open carry pistol. I also upgraded the sights recently to the Trijicon night sights and they practically glow in the dark. more

    Go buy this firearm !!!!!!!
    This is one of the absolute best handguns on the market right now. It will be my CC as soon as I order the holster. I picked up this Walther PPQ M2 on sale a few weeks back. I purchased this gun over the Springfield XD M...od2. I already have a Springfield XDS. Don't get me wrong here, the SA is extremely nice but this Walther exceeds the XDS in all areas. The trigger is out of bounds excellent. It has an awesome pull with an extremely short reset. The Walther PPQ M2 may also have the best grip of any handgun on the market right now. So it makes it very comfortable. This is also the most accurate out of the box firearm that I have ever fired. Hit 15 of 15 shots dead center first time shooting. All other rounds were with-in an inch or two of center. Not a single FTF, FTE or stove pipe out the box of 50. This firearm comes with two fifteen round mags and a speed loader. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this firearm. This is my choice over all the other semi-automatics that I currently own. Go get'cha one ! more

    My New Favorite 45
    All the great reviews I have read on this gun are true. I am a big fan of the 45ACP and have many of the best names in polymer already but this one is the smoothest shooting one I have. My first time out I ran 200 rounds... thru it without a flaw. It is super accurate and has an awesome trigger pull. It is by far the most ergonomic for my large hands of any I now have. I will not get rid of my others but this one is #1 in my eyes. I have had trouble finding magazines for this gun but I have some on backorder at Cabela's. more

    All of the good things you have heard are true
    I recently got my wife involved in shooting. She needed a gun that was easy to shoot and that was comfortable. That was my excuse for buying this gun and I am so glad that I did. When you pick this gun up you just feel t...hat it is a quality made firearm and when you shoot it you can tell this firearm had a lot of time and experience put into this design. Is it the best in the world? I can't tell you that, but i can tell you that this gun is hard to put down, it is hard to leave the range when you there to shoot this, and it is nearly impossible not to smile when you pull the trigger on this gun at the range. If you purchase this firearm, you will be very happy with your decision. more

    Exceptional Pistol
    I did not want to like this pistol. I was always a Glock fan. A friend encouraged me to shoot the PPQ before purchasing the HK VP9. I found it to to be a very accurate pistol with a terrific trigger. I have shot most of ...the 9 mm pistols out there. I have found none better. more

    Couldn't be happier with this purchase
    After replacing the backstrap with the included larger option, this pistol feels great in my hand. The trigger movement is nice and has a crisp break, while the short reset also helps get quick and accurate shots on targ...et. The finger grooves are subtle yet provide a nice grip to the frame.After unloading about 300 rounds in the 9mm model with a 4″ barrel, I'm very happy with my purchase.Additional note about my interaction w/ the local range master a couple weeks ago. It was by his recommendation that I switched to the larger backstrap. One I did that I had a much better grip. I let him dry fire it a few times, and he confirmed one of my top reasons for the purchase in that the trigger pull is amazing. GIven his 40+ years of experience in shooting and him saying that's the best trigger he's ever felt, I was even more happy with my purchase. more

    I shoot pistols at 30-ft at the range. This pistol gives me 2" groups. The fit, finish and ergonomics are fantastic. The trigger reset is very short. My Glock and M&P simply do not stack up to the Walther. This ...will be my favorite 9mm semiauto for a long time. more

    40 cal. bliss
    Ive been shooting guns for 35 years. I see alot of reviews by experienced and inexperienced shooters that leave me scratching my head. There are alot of well made hand guns out there that I would be proud to own. I think... most of the likes and dislikes come down to just personal preference. However, that being said, its my personal belief that alot of your accuracy is in the trigger and you will find that Walther has THE sweetest trigger on the market ! Walther is the industries best kept secret. Its the BMW of handguns. German engineering, reliability, accuracy and take down is ridiculously easy. Do yourself a favor and check these out !! more

    I've fired and used many polymer handguns. The Walther PPQ is by far the best 9mm pistol in it's class that I've fired. The trigger is smooth with a definable reset. The ergonomics are well thought out, minimizing recoil... and allowing for quick follow up shots. The pistol is a nice size for concealment and offers removable back straps for grip. There's not much to not like about this handgun… it's one of the best Walther offers. more

    Glock who?
    Tired of everyone trying to get me to buy a Glock I deliberately rebelled and searched for anything else of comparable quality. The aesthetics are what initially drew me to the PPQ. It's a sweet looking pistol! After sev...eral favorable reviews I decided to go for the 9MM. (.40 cal is a dead platform, no?) Glad I did. Feels great. Good weight. AMAZING trigger pull. And most importantly, RELIABLE. 100's of round through and NO failure to fire. NO failure to eject. NO problems whatsoever. I plan on picking up a few more. more

    Very Nice
    I own a Springfield XDS 45 ACP and love it. When I decided to get a 9 mm for a higher capacity I naturally gravitated toward the XDM Compact but it just didn't feel right in my hand; too thick and not very natural. But w...hen I put my hand around the Walther PPQ M2 it felt perfect. The PPQ is lighter, smaller, and yet a slight longer barrel than the XDM. At the range the PPQ felt like a well oiled machine; smooth and accurate. It has more kick than I expected from a 9 mm but I like a little feedback in my guns. I associate the PPQ as the sports car of guns, along with the XDS. more

    Best 9mm I ever fired
    Totally agree with the other reviewers. The trigger sells this gun. Trigger breaks clean like a 1911. I used to own the SA XDm 3.8 inch 9mm. I liked the SA but it doesn't hold a candle to the PPQ M2. The SA trigger was s...pongy in comparison. Quality manufacturing all the way around including the magazines that load smooth and have smooth edges unlike some of the cheap mags you get with most polymer guns. Ergonomics are great. First shot at the range was a bullseye. I put around 100 rounds through it out of the box with no mishaps whatsoever. Only negative was Cabella's price being $70 more than most other retailers but then again Cabela's was the only place in the country where I could find one so I'm not complaining really. I love the sights also. There is a little more of an air gap between the front and rear sights when sighting making it easier to center especially if your eyes are blurring from age. Field stripping is the easiest I've seen in any polymer. Crazy easy. My Sig Sauer 1911 used to be my favorite range gun but now the PPQ M2 has taken its place. Muzzle flip and recoil are easily manageable - especially considering it is a relatively light gun. The PPQ M2 looks good, feels, good, and shoots good. I give my highest recommendation. more

    Excellence...
    There is no other word to describe this handgun other than excellence... The smooth crisp break in the trigger to the ergonomics of the grip... there isn't anything like it that I have ever experienced. I'm not an accura...cy shooter by any means, as I bought this pistol for home defense and possible carry later on. At the range... this gun makes me look good out of the box. I urge anyone interested in the PPQ to watch all the YouTube videos, read any and all reviews you can find, and read up on the waltherforums. It's not just me... it's all positive for a reason. more

    I own two 9mm Smith&Wesson pistols - a shield and a M&P compact. While I like shooting both of them, I LOVE shooting this PPQ. The trigger is like none other I've shot and it has very little recoil (115 grain FMJ plinkin...g). Can't say enough good things about this gun. more

    This is a fun gun to shoot. The trigger is smooth, and the trigger reset after the initial shot is about 1/4 inch if that. So follow up shots are fast and accurate, and you can double tap with confidence. I have fed abou...t 700 rounds through mine and it has shot all brass rounds that i have with not one issue. The gun is light for its size and can be used for carry, home protection, and some fun range time. Best striker fired gun in its size for the price. Also SG has the lowest price on this one. Other places range from $560-600+. I may upgrade to night sights, but you can do that yourself with great ease. more

    No gun is perfect but the PPQ M2 comes close. Great ergos, trigger, fit and finish. First shot at the range was a bullseye from 7 yards. 200 shots later and no hiccups. Ran beautifully. Can't find much to criticize excep...t for the grip, which feels nice in the hand but is a bit slick. I plan on installing some rubber Talon grips. Recoil a little snappier than other 9's I've owned but still quite manageable. Shoots comfortably. Holding at 6 o'clock I printed in or around the center ring on first range trip. Trigger is light and crisp and takes some practice to avoid unwanted double taps. Buds once again provided good pricing and customer service. Appreciate the layaway method of purchase. I encourage Buds to expand this program to bring in more customers. Kudos to Walther for another terrific product! more

    This is a very ergonomic design. It just feels great in the hand. The trigger is fantastic and the reset is very noticeable and short. I did experience a jam on the first magazine I ran through the pistol. The slide did ...not return to battery by about 3/8", and it was really, really locked up. I finally was able to pound it loose and get the round out of the chamber. Not what I was expecting for a $600 hand gun. That shook my confidence a bit, but I have run about 300 more rounds through it with no further problems. After that first range visit, I broke down the pistol and did notice a good bit of brass shavings under the slide. I can only think there was a burr or something on the slide rail maybe. I lubed and cleaned everything up, and all is well. So, I have to deduct one star for the first magazine out of the box jam, but otherwise it is the most accurate and easiest to shoot hand gun I have ever experienced. Germans know how to build a gun. more

    LOVE THIS PISTOL! Fits my hands. Left handed shooter here. Love the AMBI. Swapping the mag release was a 2 minute job with a paper clip. I use this for my carry gun. I have put about 2k rounds through this with not 1 jam.... Couple feed problems but i was using some crap ammo so thats on me. Gun breaks down simple enough even past a field stripping. Accurate as well. Still using the stock sights. ;) Now the best part of this firearm: The Trigger. For the love of all things it is awesome. Great feel, take up i not too bad on first shot, wall is firm and snappy, and that reset though!!! get to put a quick 2-3 rounds on target. Guy at the range yelled at me for quick fire. Told him its not my fault its the PPQ M2 trigger!! Asked him if he shot one yet... he said no, I let him. He was like 'That is a amazing trigger'. So 2 reviews in one there. Great firearm. Wish more holsters out there were made for this and the PPS M2 i have as well. Love these firearms. more

    I have quite a handgun collection, all good, some great. This Walther PPQ beats them all, hands down.I have never felt such a great trigger. The reviews were right, including Hickok45. This is a very special handgun. It ...is great for rapid fire because of its extremely short reset. Although it is a bit large for concealed carry, I am carrying it on my hip under a loose shirt. So far I don't think it is particularly revealing. I can't say enough about it. My advice: watch the reviews and buy it. more

    I have been carrying a Walther CCP concealed for about a year and have come to appreciate its' size, weight and accuracy. Recently I started looking at the Walther PPQ M2 4", 15+1. I was interested in seeing how the long...er barrel and the increased capacity worked out and It works out very well. I'm not sure how Walther can make a 15 round double stack magazine only 1/8" wider than the 8 round single stack of the CCP but they do. I do not have a very big hand and find the PPQ to be very comfortable so the 15 round capacity is a bonus. Also the 4" barrel increases the FPS and energy level and it can be felt in the way the gun performs. The increase in sight radius is also a plus and all this comes with only a small weight penalty. I have begun carrying the PPQ and have found it to be quite comfortable, even though I still carry the CCP, depending on what I am wearing. The PPQ does give me a feeling of increased security with its advantage in accuracy and increased capacity. Now I have two great CC firearms. And a BIG thanks to Buds for a great deal and a smooth firearm buying experience. more

    Sweet mid-size home defense and range gun. Good fit and finish, nicely textured grip, fairly light trigger pull (mine tests at just a tad under 5 lbs.) with a short reset, and easy field stripping. Handled 120 rounds of ...assorted 124gr HP and FMJ ammo just fine today in my first range session. The OE sights could be better, but that is a common issue with many pistols in this price range. I also do not like polymer guide rods. Have already ordered 10-8 Performance metal sights, as well as a stainless steel guide rod, to replace the original plastic versions. However with Buds low pricing, free delivery, no sales tax, and the current Walther $100 rebate program, the PPQ M2 is still a good value. Pleased so far, but looking forward to installing my ordered upgrades. more

You will get 2 mags, a mag loader, a lock, 3 back straps for the grip, instructions, a test fire target from the fa...ctory that was obviously shot by someone with MUCH more skill than me (1/2" group at 45 meters on mine) and a good quality case. 500 rounds through so far, no ftf or fte. Breaks down easily. Great gun, easy buy from buds. Thanks. more

    What can I say that hasn't already been said a thousand times in these reviews. Everything good that you read about this gun is true! It's light, it fits perfectly in your hand due to amazing ergonomics, and it's trigger... is the best I've ever experienced, which makes it the most accurate and easy-to-shoot gun that I've ever shot. I was able to hit a 1 inch group at 25 yards with trijicon HD night sights installed. If you are on the fence, just buy it and thank yourself later! Buds is also amazing, as usual. This is the 6th gun I've bought from buds and it's always a breeze. more

    I love this gun and Buds customer service is excellent. I received an immediate refund on the Buds Gun Shop lifetime warranty I purchased during checkout because they called and informed me that Walther provided a lifeti...me manufacturer warranty on their firearms which I was previously unaware of. That is great customer service right there because most companies would took that money and ran haha. Gun arrived at the FFL in excellent condition and the PPQ itself is awesome. This gun functions flawlessly, trigger pull and reset is short travel and very crisp at the break, slide racks easily, mag release button is comfortable on the thumb and pops the mag right out unlike Glocks. You can shoot a moth right in the balls with this thing easy. The looks on this gun are head turners too. It looks like it belongs in Batman's holster. I recommend this 9mm. more

    The pistol was in good condition when it arrived from buds. I didn’t keep the gun for long due to certain preferences. The trigger is great right out of the box. The grip texture and “superior ergonomic grip” wasn...t as great to me as what was raved about in gun magazines. The grip angle and the way the sights are on the gun wasn’t to my liking either. Honestly I should’ve just rented one at a range first. Aside from my petty personal preferences it is was a reliable gun at the range. more

    This is a terrific pistol. The trigger is so crisp that it is unlike anything I have ever shot before. Ergonomically the Walther is so well balanced that it feels like an extension of your arm. What I really like is that... the slide stop lever and the magazine release are man sized and easy to manipulate. There is no fishing around with your thumb trying to find the head of a needle. I shot 100 rounds through it the first time at the range, Not one hitch.. This weapon is worth every dime. You cannot complain about Bud's service. I ordered it on Sunday and it was at my FFL on Tuesday, I would recommend Bud's to everyone more

    I bought this gun online thru Bud's site on a Sunday night and it was available for pickup in their retail store on Tuesday, only 2 days later. I'm fortunate enough to only live about 25 minutes from the store. The Bud's... experience was totally hassle-free, very smooth and their staff was great. They've earned a customer. Now, on to the handgun...it's a great weapon! It is well-made, has a great feel and shoots like a dream. I've put over 500 rds thru it with no FTF and no FTE, no problems whatsoever. The accuracy is on, with 2 to 3 inch groupings at 10 yards. Some folks on other blogs, when I was researching the gun, said it was ugly...well, it's balanced great, feels natural in the hand and is fairly light-weight also. It's a piece of cake to strip and reassemble too. Walther Firearms doesn't have the name recognition as say, Glock, but I'd put this gun against anyone else's product any day. If you're considering buying a QM2, do it, you won't be sorry. And get it from Bud's. more

    Wow... Sold my p320c to buy the ppq m2... And so glad i did!!!! Excellent finish, great ergos, and an awesome trigger. I own 3 glocks and two khars and this gun is rt on track to become my favorite. Only got a chance to ...shoot 30 rounds before the sun went down, can't wait to shoot it again. My dad and uncle both handled it and my dad is ready to add one to his collection and my uncle is going to get the walther instead of a glock. Ordering from buds was easy... Took a week to process my order once receiving payment and ffl but took less than 24 hours for the gun to arrive! Perhaps my next purchase will process quicker since all my info should be in their system. Who knows... Maybe the 5 " ppq or the .22lr? Definitely will order from buds again!!!! Thanks buds!!! more

Other than that, the gun as it cam...e is all and more than I expected. I love the ambidextrous slide release. The trigger pull is smooth and the Walther PPQ M2 shoots great. Field stripping the PPQ and putting it back together again is a breeze. I'm so satisfied I went ahead and also ordered a PPQ M2 40S&W 5" barrel. more

    Purchased using the cash option (electronic debit) which turned out to be very slow. I have been looking for the PPQ M2 for a while and Buds had the best price. The FFL dealer transaction was smooth and fast. Now the gun...: I cannot say enough positive things about this gun. The ergonomics and trigger are perfect; thus lending itself to be very accurate. I shot using the 75 foot range putting round after round after round within a 2" x 2" area. I shot about 125 rounds of Freedom Munitions 115g, 124g, 147g and Winchester white box through it without any issues. This was my first my online transaction and found it to be easy and smooth. more

The gun is unbelievable, better than the Bera...tta M9, CZ 75B, Glock 17, Smith M&P, H&K USP and Sig SP2022. Absolutely fabulous. Bud's service, as usual, is flawless.

    This is a world class handgun. I've owned many brands from SIG, FN, CZ etc. and I can honestly say that the Walther PPQ in 9mm, in my hands, is the most accurate handgun that I've ever shot, equal to my 1911 out to 10 ya...rds. I shoot it better than my P226 with the srt installed. It amazed me how EASY it was to shoot accurately. The trigger break and reset can be thanked for that. It has been 100{48f710d999fb0e5488d65b6e501f1c6d590d16ba86ec5811233c6097e64da013} reliable. To those who complain about this gun being snappy.......I don't get it. It's a 9mm so felt recoil is very low. This gun has it all, great ergos, reliability, accuracy, attractiveness, superior craftsmanship, and all at a reasonable price. HIGHLY recommend! more

    What can I say, this is an amazing handgun. As has been repeated over and over, the trigger is the best out there. The PPQ is so comfortable in my hands it feels like a natural extension of my arms. The only thing that I... wish was better is that there is more air between the factory sites than I prefer and I wish the PPQ had a manual safety. I wouldn't mind not having a manual safety if the trigger wasn't so light. Reholstering at 5 o'clock IWB requires a bit of extra care so the trigger doesn't catch on clothing. Buds was amazing as usual. I've ordered several guns from them in addition to accessories and ammo and I've never had a bad experience. They ship quickly and the guns I've purchased from them have always arrived in great shape. more

    The Walther PPQ M2 is an incredible handgun but the trigger is unique. Mine arrived 3 days ago and put 450 bullets without an issue. Buds shipped really fast and the service was perfect, my next gun will be from Buds...

    The Walther PPQ M2 9mm is a heck of a gun. The grip feels fantastic, the design is sleek and ... THE TRIGGER ... that is the best trigger I have pulled in a long time. Direct, smooth and the shortest reset I have seen. I... have put 150 rounds through it so far (only had it for a week) and I love everything about this gun. more

    have had the PPQ M2 9mm for about 4 months, over 1000 rds. not sure what to say, but I LOVE this gun. easy to use/ take down, easy to fire, never jammed once. comfortable to hold. considering getting the 40 as well.
