Despite their pedigree and depth of experience, Walther Arms seems to be the true underdog of the firearms manufacturing industry, never reaching the ubiquity and prominence of the Glocks and S&Ws of the world. Founded in 1886 by Carl Walther and manufacturing firearms and air guns for over 100 years, the quality of Walther Arms handguns is superb, with their focus on innovating in the worlds of defensive and competition guns.
In recent years, they’ve produced the Q5 Match polymer and steel framed pistols, the all-new PDP, and the PDP-F series for females. Plus, classics like the Walther PPK will never go out of style. Thanks, James Bond!

It comes in various sizes and versions with a modular design, so you can get the right gun to serve your purpose. Let’s dive in!
