1,000 Rounds, 0 Failures
Over the holidays, I was able to make it to the range multiple times with my Walther PPQ. During this time, my PPQ passed the 1,000 round mark, and I have yet to clean or lubricate the pistol since I bought it. During this time I have had 0 failures of any kind.
Mini Endurance Test
Since I continue to be incredibly impressed with the Walther PPQ, I thought that I would post an update after every 1,000 rounds fired.
Unless someone sends me a bunch of free ammo or I win the lottery (which won’t happen because I don’t play), I don’t expect this round count to get anywhere close to some of the other endurance tests you’ve probably seen, hence the name “mini” endurance test. Nevertheless, this will serve as a data point for anyone considering purchasing the Walther PPQ.
The trigger continues to be fantastic, and if possible is even smoother now that it has been broken in. Accuracy remains outstanding, and as I shoot with the pistol more and more, my groups continue to tighten up. The pistol is better than I am for sure.
I plan to shoot another 1,000 rounds, bringing the total to over 2,000 rounds, before I clean or lubricate it again. Stay tuned for updates!
