    What’s the deal with this wierd background sounds?

    Don’t understand why they don’t just discontinue the ccp, and make the M3 variant for the pps line. They need to:
    1. Increase the capacity from 8 to 13 + 1
    2. Increase the size of the magazine extension for more room for your pinky and ring finger.
    3. Increase the mass and durability of the stryker assembly and other parts that are prone to cracking,warping, or breaking.
    4. Increase the grit, bite, and anti wet and anti slip ergonomics on the grip.
    5. Increase overall durability to withstand +p and +p+ cartridges/ammo.
    6. Add a steel trigger with 3.5 trigger pull and extremely short reset.
    7. New recoil spring that doesn’t slam the slide to the rear of the receiver and therefore causes less recoil.

    Voila. We have the perfect single stack carry pistol.

    Mine is in 380 and it has a trigger disconnect when the magazine is dropped out you can pull the trigger but it does not activate/fire.

    The trigger on this gun sucks.. This isn’t a true Ulm made Walther. It’s made by Umarex, the parent airsoft gun company. Not up to the same standards of quality and manufacture as the Ulm produced weapons.

    Looks great. People will complain about capacity but I think I’d take 8+1 with a great trigger over some of the more awkward triggers in this category.
    Anyone know approx price?

    Nice little pistol.

  7. Wayne Castleman on May 6, 2023 at 4:24 am

    Leave it to Walther. The model II is a very nice carry pistol with single stack design and that great Walther egonomics that are awesome.

    Love my ccp m2

    Walther has established a solid reputation for manufacturing outstanding quality handguns.

  10. Steven Kennedy on May 6, 2023 at 4:31 am

    I want one! That being said…Bro! You need to shoot more. Blinking with ever shot, is a total rookie maneuver. Don’t be scared of the gun. Thanks for the share!!

    I have several full sized 9mm (Sig P226, Beretta APX, Beretta 92) but two years ago I bough a Walther CCP M2 and found it small enough for CCW, easy to shoot, accurate and very good looking weapon. I ordered an extra magazine with the pistol. It just looks like small Walther PPQ and it is better than the Walther PPS. I carry it in a polymer Phalanx holster for small compact pistols that fits like a glove and I use a mag pouch designed for single stack magazines, also in polymer that came with my Springfield Armory 45ACP. Just a great little pistol of the highest quality.

    Trigger is terrible, horrible, just plain bad.

    This video review (as the disclaimer shows) is from 2019. I am a CCP owner and it is my daily carry — but it is extremely out-dated in 2022 now. Almost every single manufacturer now has released a micro-compact 9mm with similar size but higher capacity than the single-stack 9’s which were popular between 2010 and 2018. This gun is ripe for an overhaul and I am frankly surprised Walther has not released an M3 version of the CCP or the PPS. The things it desperately needs in M3:

    1. Slimmer profile with increased capacity (ideally 11+1 or extended 13+1). There’s far too much wasted space in the magwell that is filled with polymer. They should be able to economize that like every other manufacturer has done in the past 2 years.
    2. Fix the God awful trigger. It is easily the worst part of the gun. Spongey wall that precedes the actual wall/break. It throws off anyone shooting it for the first time and takes a lot of getting used to.

    If only Walther made this completely ambidextrous I would buy it being left handed.

  15. Javora Tree on May 6, 2023 at 5:00 am

    Has Walther made any improvements with the heat build up issue? If used strictly as a concealed carry and not target practice then I think it might be okay. Love Walther but I’d prefer the PSS/PPK over the CCP.
