Walther PPQ

What changes were made between the PPQ and the PPQ M2? Has there been any reliability issues with either model?

Thanks

The only difference between the PPQ M1 and the PPQ M2 is the magazine release. The M1 uses a paddle release built into the trigger guard whereas the M2 uses a more traditional button release.

Is the trigger the same? I know the m2 supposedly has a beyond fantastic trigger.

Trigger is the best I have found in a striker-fired gun. As to reliability, I have an issue with my M2. It goes full-auto for 2-3 rounds occasionally. Contacted Walther and will be sending it in for a checkup. Other than that, it feels and shoots great. Hopefully it will be an easy and quick fix and I'll be up and running with it again soon. I have seen one or two comments on a similar problem on other forum pages, so hope it's a known fix at Walther.

I am a member of the Walther forum and check the PPQ section often. First I have ever heard of a PPQ going "full auto".

I have read about quite a few users doing unintentional double and even a few triple taps while first getting used to their new PPQ, especially if they did not have a good grip on it, with it's very short reset and crisp trigger. It happened to my Son the first time he tried my PPQ.

You obviously haven't fired a Walther P99AS.

That said, the PPQ definitely has the second-best trigger of any striker-fired pistol.

Ok. Thanks guys. Being of German Ancestory, thanks to my Grandma being born and raised in Essen, I believe it is time to get a nice German made gun.

I've had inadvertant double taps while shooting my PPQ. The trigger resets too quick and is too light at the reset point, IMHO. I've read many other reports of this happening, so it isn't just me. This makes the PPQ, or rather the PPQ's trigger less than perfect for carry or duty. Otherwise it's a great gun.
