SHOT Show 2018: Walther Arms PPQ Q4 TAC

posted on January 31, 2018
Launched in late 2017, Walther Arms showed off its new PPQ Q4 TAC, a tactical model of its popular double-stack PPQ handgun chambered in 9 mm. This all-new, full-sized platform is designed to provide handgun aficionados with all of the features necessary to customize the gun with a host of aftermarket add-ons to enhance range experience or optimize it as a personal-defense platform.

The barrel on the Q4 TAC is threaded, allowing for the attachment of sound suppressors. The slide is also milled to accept popular reflex optics, enabling users to attach the micro red-dot optic of their choice to speed up target acquisition.

For more information on the new Walther Arms PPQ Q4 TAC, check out the video above.
