The PPQ M2 pistols can be recognized by its magazine release button at the left side, instead of the former lever, that was integrated in the trigger guard. The new button can be changed over to the right side, the slide stop lever is already ambidextrous. The new position of the button will be welcomed both by IPSC shooters and law enforcement or personal protection users.
All other technical features are remaining: The PPQ‘s striker fired trigger combines the advantages of a modern hammerless system, automatically operating safeties, and most modern materials. The hammerless action in conjunction with up-to-date materials permits a very compact design and it considerably reduces the number of parts required when compared to hammer-fired pistols.
With an overall length of 8.1 inches (206 mm) and a barrel length of 5 inches (127 mm) it is fitted with a fully adjustable polymer rear sight for target- and competition shooting as for personal protection and also concealed carrying. Optional sights for IPSC shooters will follow. The two rows of cuttings in the slide are no ports but for weight reduction and therefore quicker cycling when shooting fast.
