The new Walther Magnum Pistol (WMP) is a .22 magnum semi-automatic the company says “isn’t just another target practice plinker.”

With a 4.5-inch barrel, the WMP has an overall length of 8.2 inches. The frame is made of polymer and the slide from lightweight 7075 aluminum. A serrated rear sight is paired with a fiber-optic one up front. Two included rear sights allow the user to change point of impact. Also noteworthy—the WMP’s chamber is fluted.

Overall length is 8.2 inches, and the weight with an empty magazine is 27.8 ounces. Height is 5.66 inches.


In addition to the optics-ready slide and two optics mounting plates, the WMP sports an ambidextrous reloading mechanism that incorporates both paddle and button releases. This mechanism, which Walther calls the Quad Release, has four activation points and is “the most versatile ambidextrous mag release ever created.”

As for the double-action trigger with integrated safety, it leaves the factory with a 4.5-pound pull weight.

Walther also put considerable effort into the ergonomics of the WMP, especially the grip pattern. “We have worked tirelessly to create the most reliable and ergonomically correct .22 Magnum pistol ever made and it turned out perfect,” said Jens Krogh, Walther’s vice president of marketing and product development.

Two 15-round magazines are included with purchase of the Walther PMP, and there is also an option for 10-round mags.

MSRP for the Walther WMP is $549. Visit the Walther Arms website for more information.
