You’ll likely pick up a few different pistols when shopping for a new Single Stack 9mm. The Walther PPS M2 should definitely be considered in such a purchasing decision as it might be the best of breed. When you pick it up, you’ll likely notice the legendary Walther quality immediately. Upon closer examination, the outstanding fit & finish Walther is known for jumps out at you. When you have the PPS M2 in your hand, you know you’re handling a fine firearm.
Change for the Better
The PPS M2 has changed for the better from the PPS M1. It has taken styling ques from the great PPQ. And that is definitely a good thing. The rail was removed from the pistol to better accommodate concealed carry. The removal has definitely made the pistol slimmer and sleeker. Now the PPS is slimmer than ever. That slim profile makes Concealed Carry a breeze. Another feature that most Concealed Carriers will love is the absence of a manual safety to get in the way. As always, the PPS field strips very easily with the same style of take down lever.
One of the best features of the PPS M2 is absolutely amazing ergonomics. It feels amazing in your hand. Many slim pistols feel like holding a very slim board. However, the PPS M2 really delivers in the ergonomics department. It feels like a much bigger pistol in your hand than its slim profile would suggest. Finger grooves help you hold onto that slim profile too. Also, the PPS M2 has serrations on the front of the slide. It helps if you’re the type to press check your weapon.
Accessories are easy to find too as it’s a very popular pistol. Walter PPS M2 holsters, sights and even lasers will be easier to find as time goes on.
Shoots Bigger Than It Is
Shooting the PPS M2 is nice as well. The PPS M2 may have the best stock trigger of any Single Stack 9mm on the market currently. It breaks very clean and the trigger reset is equally impressive. The bore axis is somewhat low on this pistol which helps to get that front sight pointed back in the right direction faster. So between the muzzle coming down quickly and that sweet trigger aiding in target hits, it’s very controllable during rapid fire. This pistol is fun at the range. You’ll also find that the big 3 dot sights help to line up your sight picture quickly.
As Reliable as They Come
Accuracy and reliability aren’t always impressive in smaller guns. The PPS M2 however, doesn’t have either of those issues. It’s every bit as accurate as it needs to be for a self-defense weapon. Reliability isn’t an issue either. The Walther PPS M2 is about as reliable as they come.
