Walther PDP Compact Variations & Comparables
“The Walther PDP is extremely well done. Whether you are a concealed carrier, home defender, or officer on the street, it is an excellent option. Its grip is superlative, the accuracy is very good, and I’ve only experienced a couple of issues I likely caused. In short, the gun is highly reliable in my mind. The controls are well-placed, and the trigger is superb for a striker-fired weapon.” – Sean Curtis
Glock 19 is the most proven compact semi-automatic handgun on the market today. Chambered in 9mm Luger, the Glock 19 is a versatile compact version of the standard Glock option. It’s great for use as a backup weapon, concealed carry, or service pistol. The Gen 5 in particular has made some great improvements which include an ambidextrous slide stop lever, flared mag-well, and upgraded barrel design, just to name a few. The G19 has been a favorite amongst police agencies and military units and for good reasons. This gun is simple to operate and easy to maintain, making it a great first gun, CCW, or home defense weapon.
My Walther PDP compact has proven to be a very reliable, fun handgun. I equipped mine with a Holosun 508T red dot, which is a perfect pairing to create an exceptional all-purpose handgun. Being close to a Glock 19 in size, it is relatively concealable, but its accuracy and soft shooting characteristics make it great for home defense and general range use as well. The Performance Duty Trigger is possibly the best striker-fired handgun trigger on the market, and it instills confidence in almost every shooter. The grip texture and slide serrations are aggressive, giving the PDP a very comfortable yet secure feel in the hands. Outside of a lagging aftermarket, there is nothing bad to say about this gun. It is priced well, and one could argue it is the best striker-fired 9mm on the market today.
