First Look: Walther CCP M2 in .380 ACP

posted on January 7, 2020

The new Walther CCP M2 pistol in .380 ACP is designed for those who find it difficult to operate and shoot a compact 9 mm pistol. Created to be easy to rack and easy to shoot, the CCP M2 features tool-less takedown and reduced recoil (compared to 9 mm) for maximum efficiency with minimal effort.

Born from Walther’s commitment to excellence, the CCP M2 is one the most comfortable and accessible firearms offered in the market today. Now available in .380, the CCP M2 provides one of the easiest shooting experiences with its next-to-nothing recoil and comfortable, ergonomic design.

The CCP—or Concealed Carry Pistol—is the first polymer pistol built with the Softcoil gas recoil system. This technology uses the gases from the ignition of the cartridge to reduce overall felt recoil and allow the slide to be easily manipulated, regardless of the user’s hand strength. The CCP M2 is also the most ergonomic and comfortable handgun produced by Walther, and the soft-shooting .380 ACP reduces felt recoil even further. Other features like tool-less takedown and a fixed barrel allow for easy cleaning and maintenance and help make this pistol one of the most accessible guns on the market today. It also has other popular features such as an external safety, front and rear slide serrations and a reversible magazine release, making it a valuable addition to your everyday carry.
