Walther’s Slim 9mm Meets Comfort With The New PPS M2


(FORT SMITH, Ark.) – New to the Walther line of personal protection pistols is the PPS M2, an innovative new 9mm pistol that sets the bar for ergonomics and comfort for concealed carry. The new PPS M2 is engineered for the concealed carry shooter looking for a slim 9mm that provides superior concealability while maintaining comfort and accuracy. The new PPS M2 is built to carry, measuring in at 1 inch wide, low profile and smooth features. This coupled with a new push button style magazine release for easy operation, highlights some of the changes from the Classic PPS to the new M2.

The new PPS M2 is equipped with a smooth, light 6.1 lb trigger pull, which improves control and accuracy. The PPS M2 can be the perfect fit for every shooter with Carl Walther signature ergonomics, that have become a staple in 21st Century Walther Arms. The PPS M2 is also available in an LE edition with phosphoric sights.

Adam Blalock, Walther Arms CEO stated, “I have been really excited about the PPS M2 since the beginning of its development. The PPS Classic has been my everyday carry gun for years. It’s a great gun and the idea of improving on the original was challenging … but our team has done it. The engineering enhancements and modifications that create the new M2 truly elevate this pistol into a class of its own.”

Adding the PPS M2 to the Walther handgun line is a prime example of Walther’s dedication to continued innovation and customer focus in the fast growing personal protection industry. The PPS M2 will be available in retail stores in early 2016. It will also be available to test at Industry Day at the Range at SHOT Show and viewing on the showroom floor during the show in Las Vegas, NV January 18th – 22nd.

    The original shot great and was a slim sucker to be sure. However for all the size it lost in width in gained in height. It is still a large gun, just thin. Hopefully the M2 will cut down on the overall footprint.

      I was between a SIG P239 and the Walther PPS a few years ago for my new carry gun. I ended up going with the 239, but if the PPS had a button mag release I just may have gone for that. There were plenty of differences between the two, but trigger guard paddle magazine releases are, in the end, a no go for me.

        Mike, this is in no way argumentative but why the disdain for the trigger guard release? Matter of retraining or bad experience with that type of system?

        I only ask because I was skeptical at first but got used to it quickly. Mind you I’m a lefty who came up in a non-ambi featured world so I’m already used to some squirrelly mag change maneuvers.

    Walther rep came in today with one, and we were unable to force our money on him. We’ll be getting two next week, but it’s questionable whether customers will even get first crack at them.

    As for paddle release, as a Walther carrier, and HK owner, I grew up with German-style paddle release, and I find zero problem switching back-and-forth during training and testing, but also understand that most botton-release-only guys have a hard time instinctively switching between the two. Comes down to training, really, as JD said.

    Feels way better than a PPS, and will no doubt be more reliable than the CCPs (of which we’ve had a handful of major malfunctions). The only doubt I had was the trigger. I loved the P99QA trigger most of all with the 99AS and PPQ triggers a race for second. The PPSM2 felt like a weird combination of Glock and M&P9, which is to say not good (for me), and not at all like the past triggers that made Walther my go-to.
