New from Walther Arms is the PDP Match Steel Frame, based on the proven Walther PDP pistol but with the addition of a precision-machined steel frame and other new features. The core of the Walther PDP Match Steel Frame is a precision-machined, all steel frame that is built to endure the harshest conditions, with the weight to significantly tame recoil and delivering a smooth, precise shot. In addition to the steel frame there is Walther’s Dynamic Performance Trigger for a smooth and consistent trigger pull. The grip panels are removable and replaceable by the user, and the front and rear of the frame has Walther’s Performance Duty Texture for a secure, non-slip hold in almost any condition. The optics-ready design of the PDP Match Steel Frame uses the Walther plate mounting system so you can customize your sighting system, and there are serrations at the front and rear of the skeletonized slide for an improved grip during gun manipulations. The extended magazine well and aluminum basepads work together to streamline magazine changes. The PDP steel match ships with two 20 round and one 18 round magazine, and there is an option for 10 round magazines for states with magazine restrictions.
