    Walther PPS 800 rounds and counting.

    What a blast, This one is fun to shoot. I can't believe how well this shoots. Not one FTF or FTE. The last 100 was speer GD 147s they did not group as well as the Critical defense 115s. Thinking of trying some GD 124s two see if they are a good as CD 115 rounds I'd like to use the GD if they will shoot as well.

    They're surprisingly accurate. Great gun.

    I've had one FTF but I think it was because my girlfriend limp wristed.

    I was mixing and matching ammo I had in a ziplock bag from probably 7+ different brands both JHP and FMJ with brass case, steel case, aluminum case and nickel plated cases while at the range yesterday. I probably ran 70 rounds without a single hiccup.


    I also run a Big Taco stainless guide rod in mine and it seems to make this already perfect pistol even perfecter. ;)

    Was there a noticeable change after you add the BT Guide rod?

    Also interested if you noticed any difference with the new guide rod, I've been looking at those as well.

    It is machined to very close tolerances and does not "belly" when installed like the OEM rod does. It is very high quality. I was BT's beta tester for the PPS and he is a great guy to work with. Give him a call or send him email, he will answer any questions you may have with a much higher degree of technical specificity than I can.

    Because the PPS is so smooth to begin with I think that the the BT rod just adds that last dimension of smoothness to the pistol. My PPS has not malfunctioned since I installed it.

    The photo doesn't show it but the finish on my BT rod is like a mirror. He can also black-oxide them but the contrast of the high-polish stainless looks great against the black of the gun.

    I love mine too. I've been thinking about trading my HK P2000 for a P99, only if it is built in Germany though.

    I am seriously looking into this PPS 9mm, do you think you could measure the real height of this pistol with the shortest magazine and post your result? I would really appreciate it.

    Doesn't matter anymore, I just brought home a new PPS 9mm. Wohhoo!! I've got the Critical Defense, but just realized that 115gr non +p round might not be as affective since there are so many good 147 and 124 +p rounds out there.....hmmm. Time for some testing!

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I love mine. .40.

    I'm pretty sure all P99's are made in Germany. At least that's what Walther says.

    Being that I have not shot this gun yet.....I am really hoping that the trigger smooths out? Its pretty gritty, and seems to be a lot heavier than the website suggests. Did the trigger smooth out for all you PPS owners?

    How hard are you running the gun?

    How many rounds per session and what's your cleaning schedule?
