Walther PPQ Variants
The PPQ Tactical Navy is a variant that has a firing mechanism that has been modified for operations in and near water. A non-standard hole in the striker channel ensures sufficient water displacement if the weapon becomes completely flooded with water. Hydraulic resistance is offset by means of a stronger striker spring.
In addition, special guides reduce the hydraulic resistance when the striker moves forward. These pistols are delivered with a standard staggered-column magazine and a second magazine with a +2 baseplate that add 2 rounds to the magazine capacity
The PPQ Tactical Navy SD is the same pistol as the PPQ Tactical Navy with the addition of a 118 mm (4.6 in) long special barrel with a threaded muzzle for mounting a suppressor.
The PPQ First Edition is a variant marketed in the United States.
These pistols have PPQ First Edition roll marked on the slide and feature a 118 mm (4.6 in) long special barrel with a threaded muzzle for mounting a suppressor and fixed metal 3-dot tritium night sights.
Further these pistols are delivered with a standard staggered-column magazine, a second magazine with a +2 baseplate that adds 2 rounds to the magazine capacity and a set of standard polymer sights which use afterglow paint as contrast enhancements instead of tritium inserts.
The PPQ M2 is a variant introduced at the 2013 Shot Show by the newly formed Walther Arms Inc.
It has the same features as the standard PPQ with the sole exception that the ambidextrous magazine release levers incorporated into the bottom of the trigger guard have been omitted and replaced by a thumb release push-button located behind the bottom of the trigger guard.
For left-handed use the magazine release push-button is reversible.
Additionally, the PPQ M2 magazines are not compatible with the original PPQ magazines.
PPQ pistols are delivered in a polymer pistol case containing the pistol, three backstraps of different sizes, two magazines (one standard length and one extended grip length),
magazine loader, safety cable lock, instruction manual, warranty papers, factory test target showing five shots fired at 15 m (16 yd) distance,
and an envelope with the case of the proof round fired during the proof test at the C.I.P. accredited Beschussamt Ulm
