Sure, the first thing that immediately jumps out about the Walther Creed is its ultra-competitive sub-$400 pricing, but that’s not the only thing this 9mm handgun has to offer. Boasting a 4-inch barrel with a 1:10 twist, the Creed also sports a reinforced polymer frame; non-slip grip texturing; pre-cocked double-action trigger and a bobbed hammer, as well as an ambidextrous magazine release; low-profile 3-dot sights; front and rear cocking serrations on the slide; an overall length of 7.3 inches and an empty magazine weight of 26.6 ounces. In short, it has to be given serious consideration when you’re looking for a concealed carry pistol.

Athlon Outdoors contributor Richard Johnson recently had the chance to send some rounds through the Walther Creed, and he gave it his ringing endorsement in the May/June issue of “Combat Handguns.”
“While the talking point on the Walther Creed might be the price, for me the bottom line is the top-notch reliability of the gun,” Johnson wrote. “As I’ve stated, for personal protection, I demand a gun that will work when I need it. The Creed proved itself in this regard. That the gun is both easy shooting and accurate further enhance its usefulness for self-defense. The sub-$400 price tag means that more people will have a good gun on hand should evil come calling. For that, the company should be lauded.”
