Out of Box–To-Match Review: Walther PPQ M2

Walther PPQ M2 striker fired Pistol

The striker-fired semiautomatic Police Pistol Quick Defense (PPQ) ergonomics and trigger system make it one of the easiest handguns to shoot accurately as Patrick E. Kelley demonstrates in this edition of his Out of the Box and to a Match Review series.

When you watch Patrick’s video, you’ll quickly see why this handgun is a hit. It’s easy to shoot, it’s accurate straight out of the box, and clearly, it’s versatile enough for any number of situations. The PPQ is simple to operate for right- and left-handed shooters alike. According to Patrick, this pistol experienced no failure of any kind over the course of the test with 300-plus rounds.

Note: 5-shot groups were best of two at 25 yards from sandbag rest The PPQ M2 sports a number of features:

  • Open post sights designed for rapid aiming and target acquisition
  • Ambidextrous slide release and thumb operated magazine release button positioned on the frame for either left- or right-handed use
  • Three different backstraps make it easy to configure to large and small hands alike
  • Loaded chamber indicator, trigger safety and automatic internal safeties
  • MIL-STD-1913—Picatinny—accessory rail for mounting lights, lasers and other tactical devices
  • Quick and easy disassembly and reassembly with the need of tools
