"i did not buy this gun off of evike i bought it from a airsoft store near me but i have to say i love this gun.
the grip is amazing and very comfortable
this slide feels great
the cerial number is sick
full auto is cool but durring an actual game i dont see the use of actually using it
the trigger feels great
it has a good weight to it
very easy to dissassemble
the only con i really have is that the spare mags are quite expensive but that is it
all in all i highly recommend this gun it is a great side arm
"I had ordered the Walther PPQ M2 GBB as a training tool to supplement my real steel PPQ. Granted, shooting an airsoft gun, even a GBB, isn't the same as shooting a 9mm, but there are enough similarities to make it a very effective training tool. Also, comparing the cost of ammunition, about twenty to twenty five cents per round for 9mm versus two tenths of a cent for the airsoft BBs, makes using the GBB PPQ very affordable and practical.
The GBB version does not weigh quite as much as the real one, but all of the controls and even the trigger pull are accurate to the real one. The rear sight is also slightly different in shape, but definitely not enough to notice on a practical level. The similarity is actually so uncanny, that I decided to leave the orange tip on so that I don't accidentally grab the wrong one when I'm getting dressed.
Shooting the GBB PPQ is a lot of fun, and although it definitely doesn't have the same recoil as the actual PPQ, it is comparable to a 22 caliber pistol. If you do however plan on burning through a lot of rounds, I would definitely recommend ordering an extra magazine or two. The problem that arises is that using propane, the magazine becomes very cold due to the rapid loss of pressure from quick shooting, and this will ultimately cause the seals to contract and leak to the point of it being unshootable until the magazine warms back up. I can get about two full loads out of a magazine, shooting very rapidly, until I need to give it time to warm back up.
The only other issue I had so far is that it shoots four or so inches low at fifteen feet with the hop up adjusted to provide the minimum drop (not the maximum setting but rather the highest group). For people playing this may not be an issue, but for marksmanship training, it can be a bit of an annoyance. Accuracy by the way has been phenominal with off-hand shots ringing a soup can at thirty plus feet about 19 out of 22 times. The reliability has also been nearly flawless save for it not wanting to lock back on the last round.
To anyone on the fence about ordering this gun, I would HIGHLY recommend it. Despite some minor drawbacks, it really is excellent. So far I have about a thousand rounds through it, which if it were my 9mm would have cost me around two hundred to two hundred fifty dollars. The Walther PPQ GBB has already paid for its self two times over.
"Just bought the ppq and am so far satisfied with the performance. Like an idiot, I did drop the mag and had to buy the repair kit to fix it. One thing to not is that the repair kit does NOT come with the screw piece to remove the valves on the mag. Still looking for some way to get a hold of them otherwise the gun is great for the price point and an easy recommendation for a sidearm. If the rebuild kit had the device it would receive 5 stars.
