Walther has a new competition model. The new PDP Match Steel Frame builds on the existing Match polymer frame model but adds a steel frame (hence the name). Let’s see what other features it has.
Walther @ TFB:
The magazine capacity is 18 or 20 rounds. Walther includes two 20-rounders and one 18-rounder with the PDP Match Steel Frame. A model with 10-round magazines is in the works for those of you in non-fun states. Walther notes that standard flush-fit magazines will not fit due to the extended magazine well.
Moving up from the frame, the slide has front and rear serrations. It also includes an optics cut and an adjustable rear sight. The standard barrel length is 5 inches, and the trigger pull is listed as 5 pounds. Walther lists an MSRP of $1899. Look for it soon at a retailer near you.
