The new Sub-Compact features the signature Walther ergonomics plus the fantastic Quick Defense trigger, which has a 5.6 pound trigger pull and smooth audible resets. For maximum versatility, the PPQ SC comes with one ten round magazine, and one fifteen round magazine.

The included fifteen round magazine has a grip extension sleeve that provides control and ergonomics similar to the full-size PPQ. This will increase accuracy downrange while offering the advantages of a versatile carry/training platform. The PPQ SC also features replaceable backstraps in both small and large sizes. The overall length is 6.6” and has an empty magazine weight of 21.2 ounces.

The 9mm Luger barrel is 3.5” long and features polygonal rifling with 1:10” twist. The slide features front and rear serrations for easy manipulation and is outfitted with polymer 3 dot target sights. The rear sight is adjustable for windage. Like all PPQ’s the slide stop lever is ambidextrous and the magazine release button can easily change sides for left handed shooters. The PPQ SC is backed by Walther’s lifetime warranty and dedication to technical expertise.

The new PPQ Sub Compact will begin shipping immediately. There are also several accessories available for the new SC, a 10 round flush fitting magazine, a 10 round magazine with finger extension, and a 15 round sub-compact magazine with grip extension sleeve.

“We are very happy to deliver this new and highly requested addition the PPQ family,” said Luke Thorkildsen, VP of Marketing & Product Development of Fort Smith-based Walther Arms, Inc.

The MSRP is $649.

tom,
you do know why gun makers are getting away from the 40 right? the prices are dropping as well. the 40 is just not a very good round for the recoil and the abuse it puts on the gun. 40 cal guns are failing in half the shots of the 9 or 45. even the ten is a better choice for long haul. my son has the 40 and he likes it but shoots the 9 better and the 45. I can shoot a glock ten much better than the 40 in glock.

I hope it comes with nightsights. Love my PPQ M2 and love even more after installed nightsights.

If Walther is smart they willl add night sights as you suggest because the Sig P365 is stealing all the thunder from this PPQ SC with a more concealable design with similar flush mag capacity. Also I’m not thrilled about the internal design changes; a Creed style modular breech and internal extractor are obvious cost-cutting changes to a proven design, and likely will only adversely affect durability and performance. I’m strongly leaning towards the P99c or the P365 if it proves reliable. Wather has apparently decided to chase quantity vs. Quality, and it’s a sad thing for me.

mark I don’t understand why you are dogging walther so much. if you like sig then buy sig. I don’t care for sig I actually traded my sig 45 for the new walther ppq 45 and it shoots ten times better. I don’t know about the gun you have but does it come with night sights that are adjustable? ppq has adjustable sights, so does the cheaper Taurus guns. but many sigs and glocks may have night sights but are non adjustable. kinda cheesy to me. pay six hundred plus for a gun that has fixed sights, not me. I… Read more »

Love my 5 inch PPQ M2. Took awhile to get the trigger to smooth out but now it’s perfect.
Some tough choices in the coming weeks, Do I buy the new Sig P365, or another Walther? Wish I could afford both.

So if you put an extended mag on a PPQ SC, isn’t it just a PPQ? I know that reads like a stupid question, but, as we saw with the P99, the SC version only really looks like a full-sized with the grip-shortened.

in case Walther reads any of the comments here, you need to come out with this gun in 40 S&W. there are a lot of people that shoot 40 & they are being ignored by a lot of gun companies now. i hope Walther is not one of them.

I agree. Also a paddle edition would be nice. Walther has consistently hung their left handed/ambidextrous customers out to dry of late. This gun is long overdue, but without the paddle, I’m not interested. I have the M1 in 9mm and have a ton of magazines that won’t work with the M2 button.

My son just won a PPS M2 from Clinger holsters and him and I both fell in love with it.
I’m planning on getting the PPQ M2 9mm but my son wants the PPQ M2 .45 ACP for himself. We both like the .45 APC round. We shoot it out of my 1911 but the PPQ he wants will be a little big for MY hand but should fit his fine. Even the changeable back straps don’t help.
After my son brought home that PPS we are both really big Walther fans.

I got the PPS M2 LE this past summer and also love it. My favorite CCW now. I hope to try this new PPQ M2 SC at the gun show next June to be sure I like it, but it would be nice to have this double stack option. I found I am more accurate with the PPS M2 than any other sub-compact I’ve tried.

Been dying to see this version come to light. Knew it was only a matter of time. Now let’s see how they market it, with all of the big brother mods out there.

I love this thing. Has the same trigger as the PPQ but has a profile close enough to the PPS M2. It’s going to be big.

To be honest Walther really took their sweet time with this no-brainer pistol and appeared to have cut costs on the design to boot oh well, the market will respond accordingly to their poor timing against the new button version of the HK VP9 and the Sig P365, both of which feature night sights out of the box. I don’t know where Walther wants to go in the next decade, but if they want to remain a red-headed step child in the American market, they are right on track. I say this out of love, because they used to make… Read more »

I wonder if the PPQM2 magazines will fit?

I would hope they designed it that way & would think with the sleeve like an XDS a full size mag should fit. Of course this has to come out after I just purchased a VP9SK but do love the paddle release & wish Walther would have kept that.

They may follow with a paddle eventually, as they did with the 5″ PPQ, but it took way too long.
