New: Walther P22QD

Walther has updated the P22 pistol with the P22QD. The great ergonomics and reliability of the P22 are unchanged. However, there is an added de-cocking safety, updated safety markings from ‘S’ and ‘F’ to a traditional red dot, and the recoil spring is now fully captured.

With the new safety system, the pistol cannot be cocked with the safety on. If the firearm is cocked and then the safety lever is moved to the safe position, the hammer will safely let down, de-cocking the pistol. When the user is ready to fire, the safety lever can be placed in the fire position and then pull the SA/DA trigger to fire the chambered round.

There are close to one million P22 pistols in the hands of U.S. citizens already. The P22 can be easily converted to a threaded barrel with an available aftermarket adapter (512105, pictured above) that adapts the M8x.075 barrel to 1/2"x28 threads for a suppressor. Every P22, including the new P22QD, has a single action/double action trigger, and a manual safety.

Something to note: the California compliant P22 models remain unchanged.
