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. 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.

This is a great option for those with small hands that can't get a good grip on other popular full sized pistols like Glock or Beretta.
The ergonomics of this gun are amazing! It's easily the most comfortable full size handgun that I have ever shot!
The grip, sights, and excellent trigger lend to some great accuracy potential. I couldn't believe how short and tactile the reset of this trigger is. It's the best trigger I've ever felt on a striker fired duty pistol. I haven't had a single hiccup in 200 rounds so far. I have no reason to doubt it's dependability should I ever need it in a defensive encounter. Another plus, is how easy it is to clean. The internals are simple and there aren't too many hard to reach crevices where carbon can build up.
This is the perfect pistol for those who need a dependable, simple, and accurate handgun. There are no thumb or grip safeties to muck things up. Just point and shoot.
Also, I love the fact that it has a threaded barrel. When funds allow, a silencer will be coming. If you are on the fence about this model, don't hesitate. It's fantastic!
Hinterland Outfitters was really easy to work with. I ordered the pistol on a Thursday and picked it up at my local FFL the following Monday. You guys rock!!! Amazing service!
