Gun Review: The suppressor, optics-ready Walther PPQ Q4 Tac (VIDEO)
By Chase Welch
In my mind there isn’t much higher praise for a firearm than to describe it as out-of-the-box ready for duty use. Most polymer striker fired pistols have acceptable features, but the Walther PPQ Q4 Tac pistol goes well beyond the standard.
Although it costs a few hundred dollars more than competing brands, you’d have to spend that on upgrades to put them on par with the Walther design. With the PPQ Q4 Tac, you really can have your cake and eat it, too.
The Walther PPQ Q4 Tac comes suppressor and optics-ready, but also has a host of features that you’d want in a defensive, duty or every day carry firearm. These include adjustable sights; ambidextrous controls; and the slide, barrel and magazines are equipped with a Tenifer finish.
The 9mm handgun comes with a 4.6-inch barrel, which has a 0.5×28-inch threads, that puts the overall length at 7.8 inches and weight at 25 ounces. The package also includes three backstraps, and two 17 round and one 15 round magazines.
