From Walther Arms - Small. Accurate. Reliable.
Walther Introduces A New State-of-the-Art Concealed Carry Pistol.
Fort Smith, Arkansas -
Utilizing the new Walther
SoftCoil™ gas- delayed blowback technology, Walther Arms, Inc. has introduced
its latest concealed carry firearm – the CCP.
This concealed carry semi-automatic pistol comes chambered in 9mm and is
the ultimate concealed carry pistol.
Weighing only 22.33
ounces when empty, the CCP’s Soft Coil™ gas-delayed blowback system uses gas
pressure from the ignited cartridge that is directed through a small port in
the barrel (in front of the chamber) to slow down and delay the rearward motion
of the slide. This is accomplished by means of a piston contained inside of a
cylinder located under the barrel that opposes the rearward motion of the slide
until the gas pressure has declined - after the bullet has left the barrel - hence
allowing the slide to end its rearward motion, opening the breech and ejecting
the empty cartridge case.
benefits to this system are the Soft Coil™ technology
allows the slide to be easily racked and because barrel rise is reduced, the
shooter can remain focused and accurately on target. Tests show that the barrel rise is up to one
third less than similar models on the market allowing shooters to be more
accurate on follow-up shots.
The CCP has an ideal combination of style,
ergonomics, size, shape, accuracy, and ability to
conceal comfortably. With an overall length
of just 6.41 inches, Walther’s CCP is a sleek solution to
concealed carry protection. The new model’s
barrel length is 3.54 inches and its width only 1.18
inches making it easily carried in a purse or
inside-the-pant holster. The CCP comes in stylish
stainless or Cerakote® black and provides all
the features that have become signature of Walther’s
line of pistols—smooth 5.5 pound trigger
pull, interchangeable front sight with white dot; adjustable
rear sight; and reversible magazine release
for left- or right-handed operation.
This new single-stack semi-automatic has a
magazine capacity of 8 rounds. For maximum safety,
the CCP comes equipped with a slim manual
thumb safety and one internally that acts as a firing pin
block. As with all Walther firearms, the CCP
has an ergonomic grip with a unique non-slip surface.
Other key attributes of the firearm include
an easy access slide stop; loaded chamber indicator for
added safety; and front, rear and trigger guard
serrations for additional safety and control of its easily
manipulated slide. The suggested
manufacturer’s retail price for the Walther CCP is $469-489.
Entering its 130th
year, Walther has earned the trust of law enforcement
professionals, recreational shooters, and athletes through its line of reliable
tactical rimfire replicas. Walther Arms manufactures and markets firearms of
various calibers ranging from .22 to .40. For more information, visit www.WaltherArms.com
