Walther PPQ original model, also referred to as the "M1" or "Classic" model; note the paddle magazine release - 9x19mm
Walther PPQ M2, note the button magazine release - 9x19mm

The Walther PPQ (Police Pistol Quick-Defence) is the latest development of the Walther P99, introduced in 2011. The PPQ is largely based on the P99 Rad and P99Q (specialist variants developed for the Polish army and German Police respectively); as such, the PPQ is similar enough to the P99 that they can interchange magazines and a few other parts, but the PPQ is different enough externally and internally to be considered a separate model, as the name indicates. Externally, the PPQ can be easily differentiated from P99 variants by its trigger guard, wide front and rear slide serrations, the grip texture and backstraps, fully ambidextrous controls, a MIL-STD-1913 accessory rail with 3 grooves, and by its lack of a slide mounted decocker. Some of the new features of the PPQ include a new sculpted grip with interchangeable backstraps, an entirely new trigger system and, on the M2 model, a different button-style magazine release. The PPQ is a striker fired pistol but rather than having a partially loaded striker like in the Walther P99QA and Glock pistols, the striker is fully-loaded, meaning that when the trigger is pulled, no additional cocking occurs. This single-action trigger pull results in a lighter and shorter trigger pull, with a shorter trigger reset. Due to the characteristics of this trigger system, the pistol is marketed as a special forces weapon rather than a standard issue police pistol (German police specifications require a first shot trigger pull of greater than 6.7 pounds, whereas the trigger pull on the PPQ is only 5.6 pounds).
