    Walther PPS

    I was looking online @ Buds and noticed that the PPS has 2 different version of their standard 9mm pistol. There is a 6+1 version and a 7+1 version. Is the only different a magazine?? In other words, will the 7+1 version accept a 6rd magazine??

    6+1 = Walther WAP10006 PPS Standard 9mm 3.2" 6+1 Polymer Grip Blac $509.00 SHIPS FREE

    7+1 =
    Walther Arms 2796333 PPS Standard 9mm 3.2" 7+1 Poly Grips Bl $459.00 SHIPS FREE

    If you want one I can sell you one brand new for way less ..

    I love them but need the cash

    The only diffeence in PPS is this :


    The MA model has a crap trigger pull like 12 pounds or such .. Mine takes 7 andd 8 round mags and 6 round

    They all take all three mag sizes for their respective calibers. Some sell with a mag of one size or the other, or more than one.

    Rec is right, the first link you have is for a Massachusetts-compliant extra heavy trigger version of the PPS. The second uses a different numbering system they switched to round '13 when Walther Arms took over from S&W. I'm not personally familiar with the latter, you might want to do some research before pulling the trigger.

    10006 and 10007 are the MA-compliant PPS's using the old numbering system. No clue with what they're using now. Bud's really should specify, but it's Bud's.


    Good luck!

    HUH now Im confused.

    I'm not interested int the MS model. My question is concerning the capacity on the standard model. it looks like there is a 6rd verison and a 7rd version. I want to know if the 7rd version will accept and operate fine with a rd magazine?

    based on my understanding the only reason for the extra capacity would be due to an extended maagzine, therefore, I dont understand why they would have different product number for th 6rd gun ve the 7rd gun, then the only difference is the size of the Mag.

    I was too! So I did the leg work for ya and you better 'Like' my post.

    40 MA-compliant: WAL2796384
    40: WAL2796350
    9: WAL2796333 (Ideally, you want this one)
    9 MA-compliant: WAL2796368

    This is their new numbering system. There could be additional #'s for models with night sights or number of mags on the box.


    I don't know why they changed the numbering system.

    And yes, the 9mm PPS will take 6, 7, & 8-round mags. They have extended, ergonomic baseplates to accommodate the extra rounds.

    Which comes with which mag depends on the distributor maybe?

    PPS checklist before buying - WaltherForums

    After reading some of the threads I have come up with this checklist before buying my new PPS.

    1. Try to get a BB date code made in 2011 to get the upgraded slide stop. The BA date code probably will not have the new stop with the tab to hold the spring. ( They seem to have changed over about Oct. 2010 )

    2. Field strip it and make sure the tab is on the slide stop lever and check to see if it has the standard trigger spring, not the heavy one (although this may not be a problem since I do not live in Massachusetts )

    3. hopefully the BB date code will come with 2 magazines. What are the magazines they are shipped with currently? a 5 round flush fit and a 6 round extended? ( I am buying a 40 cal.)

    4. buy a set of Meprolights and install them myself ( I checked and Walther wants about 200 dollars more for their stock night sights over and above the cost of the gun)

    Does all this information sound accurate? Anything I am missing, or other advice?

    Thanks for all the help, this has been a good forum to read pre-purchase.





    Just buy any non MA model and you will be fine .. They all take the same mags ... Just one has a heavier trigger to make MA happy

    yes, any PPS 9mm will accept 6 round flush fitting mags, the 7 rounder with pinky extension, and the 8 rounder with a big pinky extension. Sorry, but I don't own any of the 8 rounders for pics.

    Just make sure that you do not order the Massachusetts Compliant model that has, like the others have stated......a terrible heavy trigger pull.

    Nice shootin' gun, but with the 8-round mag it's the height of my full size P99. I sold it for a P938.

    If you buy from Bud's you will overpay. He's out of stock anyway.

    This guy buys hundreds at a time and I bought one from him as did many others I know of:

    Walther PPS 3.2" 9mm w/two mags New : Semi Auto Pistols at GunBroker.com

    Any 9mm PPS magazine will fit this Walther.
    I like all kinds of foreign guns.

    I can't believe that guy on Gunbroker still has those. I believe at one time he offered free shipping and was selling them for $449.

    that "guy" is Shoot Straight, one of the largest gun stores in Central Florida with several locations in Orlando and Tampa.

    My PPS came with the 7 and 8 round but not the 6 round mag. With the 8 round mag it's the same size as my Kahr TP9, which has a much longer 4" barrel. The PPS is a nice gun but not a favorite.

    Sorry might be a great pistol. But I can't get buy the ugly part. Old steel Walthers PP .PPK .P-38 .and so on a work of art and function . Today just more ugly plastic.

    I am glad I won't be around in 10 years to see what will pass for a pistol then .
