Some of my thoughts about the gun so far:
1. Great ergonomics! The grip is very similar in feel to the HK P30, and feels fantastic in the hand. The gun seems well built, yet light. It seems like it will conceal very well.
2. Ambidextrous controls. The mag release and slide release are both ambidextrous which is great. The mags dropped free very smoothly and seated well every time. The mag release is a little different (on the trigger guard), but I actually really like it because you can hit the mag release on the trigger finger side without having to alter your grip at all. Very quick and smooth.
3. Accuracy. The gun is very accurate! All the groups I shot were from 30 feet (10 yards), and I shot slower fire for the first mag. The grouping was pretty tight, with only one little flier that was from my own error. Later I did some shooting from concealment with double taps and multiple quick follow up shots, and the accuracy was very good and the gun was very controllable.
4. Trigger. The trigger on this gun is amazing. The reset is incredibly short which results in very quick follow up shots. It’s a similar trigger to a Glock, only better than the Glock trigger IMO. And for the record, I shot a Glock 19 side by side with this gun for testing to feel the difference between the two. The PPQ seemed a little lighter than the Glock and maybe a touch snappier, but the PPQ felt much better than the Glock IMO.
Overall, I was very happy with the gun. It feels great, shoots great, and will make a good carry gun. I’ll make sure I bring it to the next UCC shooting event and you guys can try it out if you want.
I agree with all of the above. I recently bought one as well. By far the most accurate handgun I've owned. Highly recommended.
