Walther PDP Full Size & Compact Review
Maintenance Walther PDP Compact Review
Maintaining the Walther PDP is exactly like maintaining the Walther PPQ or a Glock 19. It has two little take-down tabs. So it’s easy to take the firearm down. To field strip the firearm, you’ll need to release the magazine. Then pull the slide back to ensure the chamber is unloaded and there’s no ammo in the gun. Once you’ve done that, let the slide ride forward and then pull the trigger on the empty chamber to release the striker.
Trigger Walther PDP Review
The trigger on this gun is definitely very good. It’s very similar to the Walther PPQ although it does feel just slightly different. There is some fairly heavy take-up, but it’s clean. And once you get through that take-up, you’ll feel just the slightest bit of harder, take up, I’m not going to call it creep, but it’s just a little more resistance than before.
Then you get to the wall and the break is very clean. It feels somewhat heavier than the Walther PPQ trigger. But that is also a sample of one. When talking about both of these guns, it’s similar.
When I have swapped out the slides and frames on the Walther PDP and Walther PPQ, the triggers on the guns remained identical based on the slide. So when I put the PPQ slide on the PDP frame, the trigger felt like a PPQ. But when I took the slide from the PDP and put it on a PPQ frame, the slide felt like a Walther PDP trigger.
I’m not sure whether it’s the geometry of the firing pin block or just my PPQ having been shot more. But the trigger is definitely a little bit better on the PPQ, but I suspect the Walther PDP trigger will break-in. It’s a good trigger. But it’s not 100% better than anything else on the market either.
