I have the same dilemma. I have shot both and like both of them but the one major turn off for me is the cost for Walther mags, $50-60 compared to around $40 for S&W M&P mags. Both come with 2 mags but the PPQ also comes with a speed loader which to me is great.Walther PPQ or S&W M&P ,,,, one will be my next purchase
I'm sure some may say that " Well if you cannot afford the price of the mags then maybe you shouldn't buy the gun". I can afford the mags its just the fact that for the price of 1 Walther mag I can get 2 S&W M&P mags, more mags obviously means more ready to go ammo
Then there is also the fact that some say you can use P99 mags and with a slight adjustment can then use them in the PPQ. Arg .. decisions decisions, haha.
Here is an example (I have no direct experience with this specific vendor). The $42 price isn't unusual.
Also, there is another mag which is identical to the OEM mag other than finish and follower color. Typical price is $32. Search for MAGFA915. My understanding is the same company manufacures this and the OEM mag.
I've ordered these mags from CMC w/o issue.
There are two different revisions of the P99 mags. My understanding is the 2nd gen work w/o modification and the older ones need to be cut down. Personally I wouldn't mess with them and just go with the MAGFA915.
andSearch for MAGFA915Ah HA !! Great to know .. Thanks a lot !! That helps in my decision. Went to the GS in Orlando this past weekend and found a decent deal on a PPQ but didn't have enough cash on me at the time to get the special show price $519, but they did say it was their normal store price. But one of the gun shops near me just moved to a new location and I'm hopin they'll have a great 'grand opening' sale.Iíve got 7 of the MAGFA915s, and they work great.
Thanks again for the info on the extra mags.
I own the walther ppq .40s&w and it is by far the best investment yet. I am looking for new mags for it if anyone knows where to get them please let me know. I can be reached at my email address. I am also looking for a Hester that will accommodate a light too. email@example.com
Iíve also got one for my PPQ without a light, and I just ordered a 3rd for an M9 that Iíll be carrying while deployed. You could say Iím pretty impressed with Kaluban Cloaks! 1st rate quality, awesome service and theyíre very modular going from OWB to IWB just by changing hardware.
