Walther’s Slim 9mm Meets Comfort with the New PPS M2


(FORT SMITH, Ark.) – New to the Walther line of personal protection pistols is the PPS M2, an innovative new 9mm pistol that sets the bar for ergonomics and comfort for concealed carry. The new PPS M2 is engineered for the concealed carry shooter looking for a slim 9mm that provides superior concealability while maintaining comfort and accuracy. The new PPS M2 is built to carry, measuring in at 1 inch wide, low profile and smooth features. This coupled with a new push button style magazine release for easy operation, highlights some of the changes from the Classic PPS to the new M2.

The new PPS M2 is equipped with a smooth, light 6.1 lb trigger pull, which improves control and accuracy. The PPS M2 can be the perfect fit for every shooter with Carl Walther signature ergonomics, that have become a staple in 21st Century Walther Arms. The PPS M2 is also available in an LE edition with phosphoric sights.

Adam Blalock, Walther Arms CEO stated, “I have been really excited about the PPS M2 since the beginning of its development. The PPS Classic has been my everyday 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.”

Adding the PPS M2 to the Walther handgun line is a prime example of Walther’s dedication to continued innovation and customer focus in the fast growing personal protection industry. The PPS M2 will be available in retail stores in early 2016. It will also be available to test at Industry Day at the Range at SHOT Show and viewing on the showroom floor during the show in Las Vegas, NV January 18th – 22nd.

    Do not like… I like all the features of the original PPS, down to the trigger guard paddle magazine release. Also notice that that doesn’t have a red dot on the striker? No pic rail? Looks like a step backward to in my opinion.

    This weapon is a step back from my Walther PPS! Ambidextrous trigger guard mounted Magazine release is awesome! Striker indicator! Backstrap swap outs! these are what make the PPS a great weapon. not this M&P shield wannabe.

    I actually never got use to the M1 version of these firearms. I am very pro M2 and can’t wait to get one of these. Not downing the M1 fans, to each there own. Love Walther, Love my PPQ M2 9mm and this is a better choice in my opinion than the CCP.

      Yeah the CCP was a cool idea, but the execution was sub-par. There have been all kinds of issues with that pistol. The people who got good ones seem to love it however.

      I just picked up a PPS M1 with the paddle release, and since I’m an ambidextrous shooter I’m going to pass on the M2, though I very much want to try one.
