Example text

What, you might ask, has this to do with Walther’s latest 9mm? In the case of the PPQ M2 5-inch, the answer is everything. GUN DETAILS For the legendary German arms-maker, this is not a typical handgun, not even by the standards of the company’s PPQ design, introduced in 2011. com Walther’s polymer-framed P99-based semi-autos, the PPQ M2 5-inch, by virtue of its 1-inch-longer barrel and slide, puts it into a category of handguns generally served by Colt and other 1911-style pistols, as well a handful of 5-inch-barreled tactical semi-autos and sporting models, including the polymerframed Glock 34 and 35.

A true striker-fired DAO or SA/DA (like the Walther P99) will allow the trigger to repeatedly operate without either prerequisite. Thus, the PPQ M2 is technically an SA. Walther’s implementation in the PPQ M2 of the “Quick Defense” trigger also does away with the P99’s decocking system, which allowed striker-fired Walther models to be decocked with a chambered round and thus carried in a “safe” condition. 38. 38, the P99 and all subsequent models based on its design are striker-fired, and once decocked the first shot must be fired DA.

One of the 10mm’s advantages is its flat shooting characteristics. Shooting at 50 yards, you need only hold a bit high and it still hits in the center. Using some HSM 180-grain Gold Dot, hits on a 6-inch round target at 50 yards were regular. Moving back to 100 yards using a small silhouette target yielded similar results. Just for kicks, two magazines were fired The author tested the Kimber with SureFire’s X300 light and was happy with its performance and handling. com DAVID BAHDE PH OTO The Kimber TLE/RL II 10mm features double diamond-pattern synthetic grips and sports finely cut checkering on the front strap for an enhanced grip.
