    The new PPQ M2, which will be "Americanized" with a new mag release button, and will also be offered in a 5" barrel version, I'm told.

    P99s are good guns, but if you desperately want a ppq, the things that make them different are pretty significant differences. Particularly the trigger and the sights which are designed for quick aiming more so than precision. Just wait out the new ones, and jump on it when it comes out. I think its a superior gun, and around 50 dollars cheaper

    Also, it's a true single action striker fired gun. Im not even sure if theres any other gun like that

    The trigger seems similar to the ppq after the first shot mi also like how it has a decocker. I do like the grip on the ppq a lot tho but the won't be getting ppqs in soon and have no idea when the m2 is coming.

    If you like it,you like it, and I'm sure you'll be happy with it. But dont get it just because the ppq isnt in. You'll have a nice new gun either way, But if I owned a p99 and then shot a ppq Id regret it, personally. And of course I'm speaking as someone who has a new gun and loves it and is happy for the moment, but I get the feeling of just wanting something new

    6500 rounds through the one I have it has been shot by my son and wife many hundreds of rounds. Not one again not one FTF or Failure of any kind. Great accurate reliable weapon the ammo has been 115 Blaser brass RN and some Speer 115 grain HP.

    GREAT GUN!

    Very timely thread indeed. My oldest son has been wanting to buy a PPQ. Since i haven't shot one, I looked around today and found a used one at Gander Mtn. I'm a Springfield guy, so I wasn't initally too keen on the euro style mag release. After thinking about it more, I can see the utility of it. Looked like a nice gun otherwise.

    The current production P99 mags are the same as the PPQ. I have some PPQ mags I use for my P99. I think I want to find a non M2 PPQ. I love the mag release on the P99.

    I recently added a PPS as a EDC and a PPQ both in .40. The Q seems like the grip, etc was molded for my hand. Amazingly comfortable to grab...with either hand. Mag release is no big deal. My other guns are a G27 and G23. I like the Q release. Plastic rod does not concern me although I did order DPM recoil reduction rods for both S & Q from Uniquetek.com. Rods are made in Greece. I found a number of recommendations. Rods are metal and have a double spring...one small one around a small rod that fits inside another rod with a spring. Seriousl thinking of getting another Q.

    On the contrary, it enables very fast and smooth mag changes. Use your trigger finger.

    Yup, mistake IMO. At least HK is keeping the faith.

    Mjr_Fail is correct, but note the Magnum Research model# MAGFA915 is the same mag with a slightly different finish and can probably be had less expensively and you don't have to worry about getting an old style P99 mag.

    I'm not a Tupperware fan for aesthetic reasons, but I own, carry, and compete with one because that are good shooters.
    I consider the nag release to be the best feature, and it is a shame that they are dropping it. I use my index finger, BTW.

    The trigger reset is short and unmistakable. The sites are cheap, though.

    I replaced the sites with Dawson Precision, and am very pleased.

    Mags are expensive.

    I had concerns over the guide rod, but they have proven to be unfounded. Zero issues after 3000 + rounds.
