First Look: Walther PPS M2 in 9mm

The Walther PPS has established itself as a formidable handgun for self-defense. The new Walther PPS M2 takes the evolution of the Walther PPS a step further, keeping concealed carry in mind.

walther-pps-m2-1This handgun is engineered for a shooter looking for a slim 9mm that provides superior concealability while maintaining comfort and accuracy. The new Walther PPS M2 is built to carry, measuring in at 1 inch wide, and weighing-in at only 21.1 ounces. The Tenifer finish means that this handgun can be carried rain or shine with little fear of corrosion.

"I have been really excited about the PPS M2 since the beginning of its development," Walther Arms CEO Adam Blalock said. "The PPS Classic has been my every day 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."


The new Walther PPS M2 is equipped with a smooth, light 6.1 pound trigger pull, which improves control and accuracy. The PPS M2 will fit a wide variety of shooters, thanks to Walther's signature ergonomics which include a comfortable and non-slip grip surface. The push-button magazine release is more intuitive than the release found on the PPS and is found in a location that is familiar to most handgun shooters.

The handgun also features front a rear cocking serrations, a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator and windage-adjustable three-dot sights. A law enforcement edition with phosphoric sights will also be available. Three magazine options allow the shooter to balance grip length with capacity with six, seven and eight-round magazines of increasing lengths available. With the shortest magazine in the gun, the overall height is only 4.4 inches.


Adding the PPS M2 to the Walther handgun line is a prime example of Walther's dedication to putting guns on the market to fill the fast-growing personal protection industry. The PPS M2 will be available in retail stores in early 2016.
