PPQ M2 now available as a .45 ACP in Europe

When it premiered last summer in the USA, Walther’s .45 ACP pistol not only delighted American customers, it generated widespread interest in Germany and neighboring EU countries. People started asking: When can we get the PPQ45 here?

The answer will come at the IWA in early March. Having already won high marks from major gun magazines in the US (for example, Guns & Ammo named it the “2015 Handgun of the Year”), the pistol will then become available to European .45-caliber fans.

Despite the gun’s larger caliber, the barrel axis is not any higher than in the 9-mm Luger version of the PPQ! The trigger guard was slightly recessed above the middle finger to permit a higher grip. This improvement, in combination with the ergonomically shaped frame, makes the PPQ45 easy to handle even in rapid firing and presses less against the hand than pistols with a metal frame. Shooters with small and medium-sized hands, who have trouble with other .45 ACP pistols, will notice this advantage right away. The grip of the PPQ45 is only one mm larger in circumference than that of the 9-mm Luger version, and the distance between the trigger and backstrap has remained the same at 72 mm. As with the 9-mm version, the circumference can be changed by switching between the two interchangeable backstraps (M and L).

The respectable magazine capacity of 12 +1 large-caliber cartridges is another plus. As with other M2 pistols, the magazine release is on the left, but for left-handers a button for the right side is supplied with each gun and is easy to install. The polygonal barrel, which is used for the first time in a PPQ, has a length of 108 mm (4.25 inches). The empty pistol weighs 113 grams more than its 9-mm cousin.
