Big grip, a comfortable handful. Good price point, too.

Elf1e has a PPQ M2 4 inch she lets me shoot once in a while if I ask nicely. I like the Euro mag release just fine, but she doesn't because of small hand size. The interchangeable grip backstrap was a must. Great trigger with a short reset!!! Easy to re-acquire target for follow up shots. For me, it is a tie with my H&K VP9. We fired them back to back and were amazed how similar they shoot. The Walther trigger was a little better in our opinion, but close. Both great guns. If the 4 inch barrel shoots as well as it does, the 5 inch must be a dream. Great get!

I have a PPQ M2 4” 9mm and it’s a nice gun. The trigger is real light and it has a very natural feel when you hold it. Good luck with yours I hope you enjoy shooting it.

I just picked one up. I'm anxious to get some range time! I already have a P99, but I am sure this will soon become my favorite. I just love the feel of it in my hand. Like a perfect glove Nice review by the way.

I wonder how nice an Apex Trigger would be on this gun. I’ve been tempted to install one but I don’t know if I want to put money into this gun that I can never recoup if I decided to sell. When I bought this gun it was a relatively new model and the price was either $569 or $589, I can’t remember. Now you can get one for a little more than $400.
