Walther Releases the 5″ PDP Variant

Building off of the Incredible Success of the Performance Duty Pistol (PDP), Walther is proud to announce it’s now available in 5” versions for both Full Size and Compact models.  

Walther, a company, defined by over a century of engineering passion, precision workmanship, and innovation, has entered a new manufacturing era with its flagship elite handgun. The PDP has been painstakingly designed by Walther to perform no matter what so the shooter can focus on being READY.

With revolutionary Red Dot Ergonomics engineered into the pistol, the PDP platform has been designed around making the switch to the popular red-dot sight system easier for the new RDS shooter and faster for the RDS veterans. The SuperTerrain serrations are uniquely shaped to protrude above the surface of the slide, allowing for quicker and more responsive hands-on engagement with the pistol. Walther’s brand new Performance Duty Trigger shortens the length of travel and increases the tactile definition of the trigger break making the best striker-fired trigger on the market even better. The PDP is the most modular and versatile pistol ever designed by Walther, and every PDP model comes red dot READY.

Available in 9mm, the striking design provides supreme performance in any condition, making this the go-to choice for shooters as an ideal firearm in both concealed carry and conventional service situations. The PDP is offered in two distinctly different frame sizes – compact and full size – both are now available with a 5” barrel. The launch of the 5” PDP series rounds out one of the most requested pistols of 2021. The PDP is available in the following configurations: 

PDP Compact 4”, 15-Round: 2851229 PDP Full-Size 4”, 18-Round: 2851237

PDP Compact 4”, 10-Round: 2854686 PDP Full-Size 4”, 10-Round: 2854694

PDP Compact 5”, 15-Round: 2844222 PDP Full-Size 4.5”, 18-Round: 2842475

PDP Compact 5”: 10-Round: 2858169 PDP Full-Size 4.5”, 10-Round: 2858126

PDP Full-Size 5”, 18-Round: 2844001 PDP Full-Size 5”, 10-Round: 2858134

The PDP is the next evolution in world-class ingenuity for polymer frame pistols. Packed with features, Walther’s PDP is specifically designed to maximize readiness no matter the circumstance. The Walther PDP is how to stay READY.

“At Walther, we believe it is our duty to engineer the best possible pistol for anything our customers may encounter. We want them to focus on being READY for anything and not thinking about how or if their pistol will perform; we have done our job, so they don’t have to worry about it.” Jens Krogh Vice President of Marketing and Product Development Walther Arms USA.
