New for 2018, Walther dropped the PPQ subcompact at SHOT Show. Following countless consumer requests, the famous PPQ has now been shrunk to subcompact size. The sub takes the same famous Walther trigger and mates it with a 3.25-inch barrel. It ships with two magazines are in the box, one a flush fit 10, the other a 15-round extended magazine. The 15 round includes a grip extender, and when inserted, gives the subcompact a full-size grip.

The original PPQ models feature a rounded feel to the grips, and a near tri-cut slide. This is true even of the long slide PPQ 5 Match, it’s line are unmistakable. It translates well to a CCW gun. But trust me, it does. If you are a fan of the PPQ family, you ware going to love this as a carry gun. The PPQ SC features three safeties: two drop safeties and one in the firing pin block. The Tenifer coating on the slide and barrel helps it resists corrosion, which is important, especially if you’re carrying this every day. Featuring interchangeable backstraps, you can swap out the grip to better fit your hand. According to Walther’s specs, it has a 5.6-pound trigger pull. Let me tell you — it’s smooth.
These pistols are shipping now and will run you about $649. We’re glad to see new options from Walther and look forward to getting one in for review to see how well it performs.
