Walther .40 s&w

Postby jrockncash » Fri May 08, 2009 1:19 pm

I just got to try out a friends new Walther .40. I cant remember the exact model but its a new model and I would recommend that unless you have a gunsmith that is good with triggers to avoid it. We didnt switch out backstraps due to time constraints but its was not very comfortable to shoot. I much prefer the M&P over the Walther.

I looked at a Walther when deciding on a new poly framed pistol and found the same thing you did. The trigger was much like that of the Beretta Storm- very heavy, long and rough with a long reset. My decision came down to the M&P and XD (which I went with the XD).

Was it the PPS?

Or P99?

I wouldn't think it would be the PPK because I don't think they chamber that in .40.

The p99 just doesn't look like you'd be able to hold it comfortably of shoot good with it :no:

Some people like it, I think its weird. It has a striker decocker, which scares the hell out of me for some reason. The trigger is weird too, it's almost like it has a two stage trigger. I hate the mag release on the trigger as well, once again some like it but I think it's a pain in the butt. I've got to mess with some of them and I can't change a mag on them for squat.

I will be the contrarian here. I helped two different folks look for "the" perfect pistols and they both ended up buying P99's. There are differnt versions that center directly around the triggers. For comfort and accuracy they are as close to perfect as I have run across and the owners I have met are in love with them. I want one and may even prefer it to my sweet Kimber Pro carry.
