    Received an email from Walther saying they are going to announce a new pistol this February. I’m wondering if it’s going to be another variation of the PPQ, or maybe it will be something even more interesting like a SIG P365/Springfield Hellcat competitor. Anyone heard any rumors or up for some speculation? 45FE3CFA-D39E-490E-AB63-A8AC295C2C84.png

    I will speculate - I think they will follow the trend toward tiny 10+ round pistols like P365 and Hellcat. I would be interested in seeing what they come up with no matter what it is.

    A double stack pps would be cool.

    Whatever it is, a new pistol from Walter is good news. How would we feel about a 10mm PPQ or a Q4SF in .45?

    I'm seconding the doublestack PPS, given the success of the P365 and Hellcat. That being said I'd love a 10mm PPQ with a 4 inch barrel for woods carry.

    I hadn’t thought of a 10mm PPQ, that would be darn tempting.

    Probably a contender to Glock 43X/48, Sig P365/XL, and Hellcat would be my guess.

    Perhaps a 15 round PPS-M3 to keep my 8 rd. PPS-M2 company?

    Walther doesn't seem to keep up with the market . I like their guns, they're top notch and very good but their marketing is weak. If I had to guess, I'd say itll
    be a something I won't care about in 9mm punybellum

    Agree, seems most likely.

    Amusing, considering CCW 9mms ARE the gun market right now.

    Hum pps in 380 would he cool too. I know not popular but grows on me.

    Whatever it is I just hope it is made in Germany and keeps same quality as ppq and pps.

    I also think that Walther could stand adding a competitor for P365. In fact, PPS itself raises questions with me. It is absurdly tall for what it is. Even Glock did better with G43, and they didn't try very hard. If Walther could only rework the designof PPS so it's not as stupidly tall, and added a semi-staggered magazine option, if would be really something (as long as it's not made in the Umarex factory :)).

    But unfortunately, the empty holster in the picture is much too large for this. So it's either yet another variant of PPQ (a 10 mm perhaps), or the PPX Gen 3 (I consider Creed to be PPX Gen 2).

    Guy in the photo is wearing an empty holster that seems to fit a medium sized pistol with glass on it.

    Let me guess- a polystriker...

    However, I would like to see the AS decocker capability from the P99 applied to a smaller platform.

    The P99c is a nice little package.

    Yes- Just not a size efficient as some newer designs.

    Another PPQ variant would be my guess.

    Yay! More safetyless striker carry guns with "great" triggers that are nice and light. What could possibly go wrong?

    There are only about 20 PPQ variants already. So, I figured one more is a good guess.

    A single stack compact PPQ would be perfect.

    True, but the new super effiecent designs are just too thin for my mitts, so I like my subcompacts a little extra chunky.

    Mags on the waist look like medium or full sized double stack pistol. Holster appears to be built for a medium or full size pistol with some sort of slide mounted optic. My guess, it’s a coffee cup with a fancy ploy to make people guess.
