Fans of the Walther Arms concealed-carry handguns can now take advantage of a new carry optics package offered by the company in the form of the new PPS M2 RMSc. This new-for-2018 package combines the compact size and enhanced ergonomics of the PPS M2 pistol with the rapid target acquisition provided by the Shield Sights RMSc reflex sight.

“Carry optics is a fast growing category, and Walther is very excited to offer the PPS M2 equipped with the RMSc," said Kevin Wilkerson, marketing manager for Fort Smith-based Walther Arms. "The combination provides significant value with a slim factory milled slide topped with an exceptional optic. This pairing will be a perfect fit for the buyer looking for a concealable optic ready product.”

One of the difficulties of pairing a red-dot reflex sight with the PPS M2 was dealing with the thin slide on the gun, which measures just an inch wide. Luckily, Shield Sights took its popular RMS reflex mini sight and shrank the design in order to allow it to fit onto compact, single-stack carry guns like the Glock G43, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield and now the Walther Arms PPS M2. The sight provides users with a bright, clear aiming dot that measures 4 MOA in diameter.

The rear of the slide on the Walther PPS M2 RMSc is milled to accept the reflex sight and allows the red dot to sit low enough in the slide that the dot can co-witness with the iron sights on the gun. Should the reflex sight ever run out of power or be damaged, users can still accurately fire the handgun using the irons. Should owners want to remove the red-dot optic entirely, a cover plate is included to fill the milled gap in the slide.

The suggested retail price on the Walther Arms PPS M2 RMSc package is $699, which is a significant savings for consumers versus purchasing each component separately. The suggested retail price on the PPS M2 alone is $469, while a standalone Shield RMSc reflex optic has a suggested retail price of $504.
