Walther PDP Steel Frame Launches in Full-Size & Compact Models

Walther Arms made a splash, building on the legacy of the PPQ and the Q4, when it introduced a completely new line–the PDP. Now the line expands again with the debut of the Walther PDP Steel Frame in both full-size and compact models.

The precision-machined steel frame adds significant weight to the platform. We’ve seen this already from Walther with the recent steel-framed version of the PDP Match. The weight tames recoil and helps shooters recover faster for follow-up shots and transitions, critical components both in competition shooting. Now that same technology comes in a duty and carry package in the PDP Steel Frame.

“Adding the PDP Steel Frame to our offerings, in full size and compact, allows us to continue to revolutionize what our consumers want and need,” said Jens Krogh, vice president of marketing and product development for Walther Arms, Inc. “The versatile features combined with the steel frame, makes this an unparalleled performance-enhancing powerhouse.”
