Walther had their updated PPS M2 at the NRA Annual Meeting in Dallas last week and said the factory RMSc package is now shipping to retailers.
The parallax-free red dot is a slimmer version of the Shield RMS designed for subcompact carry pistols, a category that Walther’s PPS M2 fills nicely. The 1-inch wide single-stack 9mm uses a 3.18-inch barrel and goes just 6.3-inches overall, specs that are comparable to the Glock 43 and Smith & Wesson Shield. The factory-standard red dot model has its top slide milled to accept the RMSc with no overhang but ships with a cover plate should the user want to just rely on the co-witnessed iron sights.
Company reps say the combo makes fast target acquisition easy and is a feature they are getting more requests for. “Incorporating a high-quality micro red-dot into the PPS M2 platform, without adding bulk to the gun, addresses the growing consumer interest in red-dot mounted carry pistols,” said Bret Vorhees, director of product development at Walther.
Retail for the package is $699 but you can expect that to be less at your local retailer. Still got questions on the PPS M2 itself? Check out the above video.
