Thing is dead nuts accurate out of the box. I'm an unexperied shooter and I was putting down maybe 6 inch groups at 10 yards without really even aiming properly which is a lot better than I expected. I'm sure if I knew what I was doing the light weight trigger would really help but just the ergonomics out of the box makes it shockingly easy to shoot well

Purchased Walther ppq from Bud's at a very competitive price and received it promptly.
I have had it to the range for about 1000 rds with all kinds of ammo with no problems. Very accurate and pleasant to shoot.
I have replaced the sights with Trijicon night sights and very easy to do.
It has quickly become my go to gun in the house because of the increased capacity.

This handgun shoots great, specially the trigger. Accurate right out of the box.

The trigger on this gun is amazing, many people say that it is the best trigger on any striker fired polymer handgun and so far I believe it. Ergonomics are also top notch and you cant go wrong with ambidextrous controls. The only thing I changed on this gun was the sights. Not that the stock sights are terrible but I needed night sights since this is my home defense gun. Definitely recommend buying this gun.

The Walther PPQ M1 is truly a remarkable gun. First time to the range with it, it as dead on center, a joy to hold and shoot, perfect ergonomics, amazing trigger that ends up with a bullet square on target...simply amazing. The best pistol I have ever shot. I couldn't recommend more highly. I also like and prefer the M1 paddle magazine release, which is why I got the M1. I have a Walther P22 that has the same paddle release, it's just so intuitive and better than a side button release, but alas that's what most folks are used to. But getting back to the PPQ - it's an amazing pistol, the best.

People used to say "German engineering" ... and it this case it's true. Great, reliable pistol with even better trigger. I have chosen PPQ M1 (also called PPQ Classic) because it's FULLY ambidextrous. Magazine release is different, but after 1 week of using it I can simply say - better than button release.
Long slide lock/release is a little bit tricky... very easy to operate, however I've had to spend some time working on my grip and avoid pressing it during shots (doesn't affect accuracy, just slide does not stay back after last round if you keep pressing it).
Sights are polymer and regular 3 dot - so no one-hand racking nor night shooting.
I've tested 3 ambidextrous pistols before this purchase - PPQ M1, H&K VP9 and SIG P320C. All three guns are great, but Walther fits best in my hand (this is the highest priority for me).
Pistol works like a charm after few thousands rounds, no single malfunction. And still looks like brand new - that means it has good finish.

I wanted the PPQ M1 because I prefer the paddle mag release over the button. The trigger guard is narrower at the finger undercut and it is more comfortable for me to hold. It is also less likely to release the magazine unexpectedly. The gun was delivered quickly and I took it to the range the same day. I have fired 350 rounds through it so far without a hiccup. The trigger is great and the grip feels like it was made for my hand. It was such a pleasure to shoot that I ordered the 5" model as well. I did have to order the 5" PPQ M1 from a different site though since it is exclusively sold through that site in the US. I love this gun.

This is a good piece. The first thing I did was replace the guide rod with a stainless steel one. I could instantly notice a difference when racking the firearm. It also gives me piece of mind knowing the guide rod is steel and not polymer. For someone with smaller hands, I like the ergos with the small backstrap. However, when compared with the Springfield Mod 2 series, I still prefer it. The XD just fits my hand better and is more comfortable. First time out, I put about 350 rounds through it out of the box w/o cleaning it. It was 100% with WWB, Fiocci 115 & 124 JHPs, and Win 115 JHPs. The paddle release takes a little more focus than I expected to use and be comfortable with. If I could go back I would have bought the button version instead. It also helps that you can use canik tp9 mags with the button release version. The canik mags are much cheaper than the walther paddle style mags. This is very important for someone such as myself who keeps atleast 10 mags per firearm. The sights are not as bad as everyone says. They were dead on for me and the space between posts helps for someone who shoots with both eyes open - like myself. They are polymer though so if you are not against polymer sights then leave them be.

Smoooooooth trigger. Have to get used to the mag release being on the trigger guard, but its nice. Easy teardown, smooth fire. Overall nice weapon. I especially like the textured grip. For someone who has sweaty hands but doesn't like to wear gloves, this is just icing on the cake.
Nice smooth online transaction and quick pickup from local FFL.
