It looks cool.  I have always liked the looks of Walthers.  Always wanted to buy one, but just never have.

No experience with one, but from what I hear the trigger is very good. And some say the best out of the striker fired pistols. But in 45ACP I prefer my Sig P220 over just about any other 45 except my WC Classic.

And one other thing most everyone I know that has one has had problems finding decent accessories such as NS and holsters for them.

On the holsters there are lots of places that will make custom kydex setups.  I have a buddy that does IWB kydex/leather and he will make anything as long as you bring him your gun to use as a pattern.  His are not as pretty as the big shops, but they fit and work well.

Had a Glock 23 for a bit Mark. Liked it well enough but... I may need to work on BD about that Sig. It's about $300 more than the Walther! Thinking, thinking, thinking.

Just a thought, but I think a good share of the $300 would be the night sights the P220 has.

This one has almost the same grip, but you'll be lucky to fight your way to a Frisbee:

If you go for the S&W SW99 version you get the improved trigger guard magazine release.  Get also a Walther PPS.

Look at the value. Look at the deal. Then look at which one fits your hand and needs. Then buy both of themBig Grin
