Are Walther guns any good?

The PPX is gone from the Walther German website but not the US site. That could be because it is out of production there and the remaining surplus of PPXs are still for sale in the US. The term used in U.S. sales parlance is to “flush them out”.

Is the Walther PPK/S the worst pistol ever?
To quote from that gun review: “The trigger [of the PPK/S] was, and still is, among the worst of any pistol, and it has an annoying tendency to bite the hand that holds it.” While Walther addressed one of the main complaints on the original PPK/S with a much improved trigger, the pistol still has some sharp edges that can make shooting less fun.
Can you shoot the Walther PPQ?
Shooting the Walther PPQ really all comes down to what grip you use. If you use a traditional grip like you would use like a Glock, Sig P320, or any other striker-fired handgun, you’ll likely be disappointed. The recoil is going to seem a little bit much, and it just doesn’t shoot as well.
