Walther PDP 9mm ($650)

Walther has just introduced a completely new Performance-enhanced Duty Pistol, or PDP. This pistol features an optimized, modular grip frame with excellent ergonomics and an aggressive, yet non-abrasive tetrahedron patterning. The slide is optic-ready from the factory and utilizes a plate system to accept the most popular duty-rated optic footprints. Enhanced slide serrations offer improved slide manipulation and its iron sights will co-witness with most optics, thanks to an optic pocket that is cut deep within the slide. A new performance duty trigger tops off an impressive list of features designed with the professional in-mind. The PDP is available as a compact (15-rd) and full size (18-rd), each sharing a 4-inch barrel with different length grip frames differentiating between the two. Finally, a full-size 4.5-inch model is also available. For more information contact Walther Arms; Tel.: (479)242-8500; web: waltherarms.com
