First Look: Walther CCP
March 14, 2014
Walther Arms is combining the styling and ergonomics we've become familiar with in their PP-series of pistols into a smaller, lighter package.
The new polymer frame Walther Concealed Carry Pistol (CCP) operates from a single-action, "Soft-Coil" gas-delayed blowback system. The pistol uses a small port in the barrel to harness gas from an ignited cartridge into a piston which delays the rearward motion of the slide — intended to reduce felt recoil and barrel rise.
The Walther CCP weighs 1.39-pounds (empty), has a 3.54-inch barrel and feeds from an 8-round, single-stack 9mm magazine.
Safety features include a manual thumb safety, internal firing pin block and a loaded chamber indicator.
Available with a black Cerakote or stainless steel slide, the Walter CCP comes to market for $469 to $489; depending on configuration.
Stay tuned for a full review in an upcoming issue of Guns & Ammo.
