(5 out of 5) Tack driver...
by from Advance, NC on

I traded my Glock 19 Gen 5 for this Walther Compact PDP. The PDP fits my hands like a glove and it’s an absolute tack driver with the stock sights out of the box. I’m not using this for concealed carry but rather a home defense pistol. I’ve added a TLR-7 Streamlight for $125 and the combo serves its intended purpose. At this time I have not added a red dot sight and I’m undecided if I will or not. The fairly aggressive grip texture is exactly what I prefer, the slide mechanism is smooth and the rack serrations are nice. The trigger pull is clean and crisp and the reset is short.

My only complaint is that you have to request the plate from Walther for the optic you want. When it comes down to it every individual has to pick up a pistol, hold it, work it, and fire it. We all have different preferences on feel and comfort and a recommendation from a friend is just that. Try before it before you buy it. Happy Shooting!

(5 out of 5) Fantastic Pistol - Walther PDP
by from Dayton, OH on

I love my Walther PDP 9mm. Quality and reliability is superb. Regarding another review with negative comments concerning the stock sights, the whole point of this gun is to use a red dot optic. It comes pre-cut for an optic. As with Glock, no one in his right mind shoots with the stock sights, and so its kind of ridiculous to criticize stock sights. Stock must go, its a given. I mounted a Leupold Delta Point Pro red dot along with silencer height extra high metal fixed sights for backup, and its very accurate at medium and long range. The slide is engineered to be aggressive in its serrations and has a great grip even with wet hands. For a concealable weapon, it holds 18 rounds which is unbeatable. The magazines are machined metal and made in Italy, & they insert super smooth. This weapon simply kicks a$$ and you wont be disappointed. Like it way better than Sig P365XL because it holds more rounds and feels better in my hand. Its a nearly Perfect Defense Pistol. PDP all the way, baby. But to each his own. 

(3 out of 5) Fan of walther, but PDP was paid hype
by from Phoenixville, PA on

Not much to say, I bought the 4.5 barrel full size...took me a while to run 500 or so rounds through it and decided I dont like it and its going get sold. I really do love Walther, but the PDP is in almost every way worse than every other full size gun I own. Snappy, crap sights...fine, its got a good trigger, but it shoots worse than a stock G17. Its a shame they cancelled the excellent PPQ line for this crap. The only thing walther seems to have done with the PDP was invent an even worse version of Glocks MOS. The hype, I can only guess, is paid for by Walther. Good to know that almost all gun reviewers are shills.

(3 out of 5) Super Snappy Recoil
by from Royse City, TX on

I bought this gun expecting to be thrilled. Unfortunately the cons kind of outweighed the pros in my opinion. They have some great feature such as the grip texture, the pinky part on the mag well, and the trigger. Unfortunately this is outweighed by the super thick slide, lack of concealability, plastic sights and most importantly the horrendously Snappy recoil. I'm a big shooter and an instructor, so I know how to grip the gun and I have shot a LOT of different guns. I sold this one immediately because it just wasn't enjoyable to shoot. I have too many better, flatter shooting guns to keep one that isn't comfortable to shoot. I even tried a steel guide rod with a 13 pound recoil spring and honestly didn't feel a difference in recoil impulse at all. Great idea... Poor execution in my opinion.
