View Full Version : Sacramento Walther PPQ Owner?

02-26-2017, 10:35 AM
Hey Calgunners,

Wanting to buy a PPQ for years. Finally have some extra cash to afford one. Only problem is I have never shot one...

Anyone know of a range that rents a PPQ or anyone that is willing to meet so I can fire a few rounds through one but I spend the $$$?

Ammo and range fee's on me!

Buy it awesome gun.

Just took mine out this weekend put 300 rounds through it. It's an great gun. You won't be disappointed, it's the pistol I shoot best. 1 inch groups at 10 yds.

You don't have to even try shooting one to know that you will like it. It is one of the best striker fire pistols out on the market. Unfortunately they are not on the CA Roster so you will have to pay a hefty CA premium to buy one from a private party. If you are lucky, you might find one that pop up for under $1,000 but those get snatched up really quick.

I have good news and bad.

Good: I have a 5" and 4" M2 you're welcome to shoot.

Bad: I'm in SoCal.

I read a post from Walther PPQ forum, someone said walther could sell Q5 complete slide for $700, so I am not sure if this need to be via FFL?

There is three striker fired pistols I have shot well in my lifetime, along with the HK VP9, HK P7M8, the PPQ is one of them.
This is no hype, the PPQ is very good gun, get it, You will not regret.

I have the 4" 9mm, great shooter. Accurate AF. fantastic trigger. I have a hard time w/ the ambi slide lock at times, because I ride my thumbs tight to the frame.

Buy it if you can get for $1K. Still overpriced but awesome gun.

I have a PPQ M2. The magazine release is easy to accidentally press with your palm. The gun sits rather high in the hand. I occasionally keep the slide from locking back with my dominant thumb because of the large slide stop. I shot an IDPA classifier with a PPQ, then a few months later with a Glock 17. I had a better score with the Glock. Reason? I practiced more.

Conclusion. Unless you can buy these for free state prices, there isn't much of a reason to own one unless you just want a gun that other people around you don't have.

If you wish to buy it with the hopes of shooting better, instead of paying $1k+ for a gun that costs $600, spend that money on a quality pistol training class, and participate in IDPA/USPSA/steel challenge at your local club with one of the many pistols you surely already own.

I have a ppq 45 in the area, I'm due to shoot, not a lot of time though. I just installed tfx pros. I really like the pistol!

Dude, this is one of those pistols that it's ok to buy without trying it first because it's THAT GOOD! Trust me and the other PPQ owners......the gun is all around a true winner!

Buy with confidence!

I have a p99 as, which is for all intensive purposes 80-90% the same. I've never fired it actually. If you'd like let's shoot sometime see how you like it.

If you're down this way you are welcome to run some through mine.

I have m1 9mm. In sac. Original one with German paddle release not that button nonsense. Wanted one for 7 years finally got it last year. Trigger is good and reset is short, too short. Very easy to do accidental double taps or ND. Grip is great, not p30l great but very close. The real problem is the snap. This is undoubtedly the snapiest 9mm I have. Yes if you overly focus on your grip it can be tamed but still to way too noticeble for a 9mm. It's worse than my g26 and p99c as. Worse than most of my.... actually all of my 40 cals. Also trigger seems too light for ccw. Despite what seems like me not liking it, I actually do and shoot great with it. Love the way it looks, but if I had a choice to do it over I would have got the p99 as in od. The trigger is just as good with more options. You can carry long da, long sa, or short sa. The p99 qa is garbage, it's like a ppq's brother but older, uniployed and with a drug problem.

Buy one. If you don't like it, I'll give you $500 for it.

get one, and later to purchase PPQ Q5 complete slide. I had contacted Walther, and the guy told me once the PPQ Q5 production had met the market demand, they would sell the Q5 complete slide

I have the PPQ and VP9. I prefer the VP9 more.

But you really can't go wrong with either..

Bought my M1 9mm without ever firing a PPQ and never regretted it after that first range trip with it.

It was love at first bang..

Easily the most accurate pistol I ever shot. Makes me looks like a marksman in spite of all my bad habits...

You can buy a Walther M2 since they have an awesome trigger for $1000+

Or you could add an awesome trigger to a Glock:



Seriously if you buy a Gen 3 Glock for $550 add a DK trigger and good sights. You would still have $200 for ammo:)
