Eh, idk if they were this bad.

I don't get any joy out of someone having issues. I think the design itself is kind of cool.

Same here. The gas-delayed blowback is cool and it's nice to see there is still interest in the system.

But Glock's reputation (which they had to earn) and handling of early Gen 4 problems is a far cry from Umarex's reputation of putting out one problem child after another (SP22, P22, PK380, "new" PPK .22LR, CCP). And they muddy the water by putting the "Walther" name on their products.

They do this to confuse consumers and profit off the Walther name (who actually still makes very high-quality firearms at their factory in Ulm).

Ultimately, it's the consumer that suffers here, and there is no pleasure to be found in that. I definitely understand the OP's frustration.

Walther claims it will stand behind it. We'll see.

What do you plan to do then? Shoot it and see? Or sell it? Return it?

Walther came back yesterday.

They received it Wednesday 3 July and it's back on 12 July. Not a bad turn around time.

It would have been here sooner had Walther's staff not been quite so difficult to communicate with. It was not a particularly good customer service experience.

According to the paperwork they replaced the striker spring and the spring guide. No indication as to what might have caused the failure. OK, I guess I didn't really expect that level of speculation.

I'm going to try to get it to the range this weekend, but not sure if I can.

But, I still LOVE how this thing sits in my hand. Absolutely adore it.

Thanks for the update. I hope your new CCP functions to your expectations now.
