A BIG FIRST
BY WILEY CLAPP, FIELD EDITOR
The PPQ is Walther's
contender in the modern
service pistol market.
But the line now offers something we've not
seen before from the German gunmaker-a .45.
Back before World War II, the Shooter's Bible promised the Walther P.38,
chambered in 9 mm Luger (r.), would soon be available in .45 ACP. That
gun was never made, and the PPQ is Walther's first factory .45.
