New for 2021: Walther PDP Full-Size Handgun

posted on February 16, 2021
Walther introduced the new PDP full-size handgun, which features a 4.5-inch barrel and milled slide cut for optics-ready configuration and is intended for both concealed carry and duty use. The company also has a compact version of the PDP. Shooters are given the choice to select which type of optic they'll be using and Walther will send that adapter plate. 

There's a lot of other exciting features, including front and rear Superterran slide serrations, white-dot adjustable iron sights, and an ergonomic grip profile with Performance Duty Texture that allows you to get a firm purchase in any environment or conditions. The handgun comes with three interchangeable backstraps that also help adapt the grip to shooters' hands. The PDP comes with an 18-round magazine and a spare magazine as well.
