I am shopping ahead of my PAL/RPAL being issued. I am looking at the Sig Sauer P320 and the Walther PPX. I am leaning towards the Walther because of price...and the extra mags, holster, etc. I've read several good reviews of each, any input from Blueline members?
Apparently, Walther. Mine broke in half. Literally. The slide actually fractured into two pieces.
I contacted Walther US, and they said to contact Walther Germany. Contacted Walther Germany and they said to contact the Canadian distributor. The Canadian distributor doesn't use email, so I called. They said they can SELL me a new slide ... and it was a TWO YEAR waiting list right now. (This was three years ago. I am still on the list.)
Obviously the PPX is not made to the same standard of the P22, but you could not GIVE me a Walther right now.
On their website, they advertise "Handguns for life." Yup ... it will be sitting in the back of my gun vault for the rest of my life, waiting for a new slide.
On the upside, I am still on the list!

Just Google "P22 slide cracks." Last I checked, almost 40,000 hits and some very disturbing images (that match mine almost exactly.)
But hey ... I am on the LIST.
7.62x25 ammo seems to be cheap enough.
