I used to be a Walther PPK fan about 25 year ago but rid of several only because I was young and needed the money. I recently have been looking at the 9mm PPS. I like how thin the gun is but the trigger on the gun's I have dry fired many times while looking feel like they have grit or sand on them. Is this just me or has onyone elso noticed this. I have and still own a couple glocks and XD and the triggers seem much smoother. I have shot what I own and they are sweet. I am shying away thus far on the PPS due to what I noted above. Any input appreciated.

While I notice some grit to the trigger pull, it doesn't seem too bad to me. It seems to have got better the more I have shot it too.

My wife owns a 9mm PPS which she bought new. I have fired it quite a bit. The trigger is a little gritty at first but after several hundered rounds it has smoothed out nicely.

PPS is my favorite gun. I have nearly a dozen EDC class pistols and the PPS gets the nod every day. The trigger smooths out after a couple boxes of range ammo.

My wife had a PPS for a while. I ran several hundred rounds thru it. Extremely accurate pistol from my experience. However, I don't really trust Walthers for defensive carry, just my opinion, yours may vary.

As I posted, I was always a Walther fan. Everytime I look at the PPS at my local gun store the person there says "surely your not going to replace your Glock 26 with that (meaning PPS) are you? The trigger is definetely gritty feeling new on the PPS

The trigger improves a great deal after a few hundred rounds, and I will echo the sentiments above that after it breaks in the break is much better than a Glock.

$580 at BudsGunShop.com and no state sales tax. The sales tax is always what ruins buying locally for me. :(

The lack of smoothness throughout the trigger pull is caused by the firing pin spring bugling against the side of the firing pin "tunnel" as the spring compresses.

To minimize this, remove the firing pin and using a Q-tip, clean and lube the tunnel. Do not over lubricate! Excessive lube in this area will follow the firing pin, exit the firing pin hole and contact the primer of the chambered round. Not a good thing.

PPS is a pretty neat little gun, I was really sold on one until 2 things happened. 1) The fact that a snap on backstrap will disable if bumped loose. 2) Shot both it and a Kahr P9 and CW9... Although the recoil on the PPS is perfectly fine the Kahr shoots much softer with a better trigger to boot. Plus its just as thin of a gun with less weight.

I've carried the PPS for 9 months and love it. The trigger has gotten smoother with use (Lot's of dry fire with snap caps).

I am not a fan of the 'backstrap safety' but I never take mine off to strip the gun. As for 'bumping' it loose, a bump that hard would break my hip. Dropping it from waist high won't do it and please don't ask me how I know this!

Overall, I like this gun because it shoots well and is so easy to conceal.
