Walther has announced its first true .45 Auto in the company’s storied history

The all new PPQ .45 Auto is designed for personal protection and recreational shooting.

The gun is equipped with the Carl Walther signature quick defense trigger, which improves accuracy and allows for precise follow up shots.

The .45 Auto is fashioned with the traditional front and rear slide serrations for superior handling during use, and features fully ambidextrous controls like all PPQ models.

Walther’s PPQ .45 is without equal in the striker fired polymer framed centerfire pistol market. Like all other PPQ models, the trigger is a crisp 5.6 pounds, making it the best out-of-the-box trigger in the industry.

The new PPQ .45 Auto houses three separate safeties helping make it a truly capable and safe handling firearm when being used on the range or when carried concealed. Accessories can easily be mounted on the mil-spec Picatinny rail.

Walther’s PPQ features overall length is 7.4 inches, a magazine capacity of 12 rounds, and a polygonal rifled 4.25 inch barrel which is an upgrade from the traditional button rifling process.

The PPQ .45 Auto will hit the market and be available in retail stores on Oct. 1, 2015.
