    I know many folks in the USA that like the button mag release. Walther realized that and after having the PPQ M1 (lever mag release) in the USA for a couple of years, they introduced the M2 with the button mag release last year. They stopped importing the M1.
    Walther just announced they they are sending the M1 back into the US market.

    Good to hear. I've been trying to find a used model one and they have definitely dried up.

    Nice ...I heard this a while back, but it never seamed to materialize. After trading my PPQ .40 M1, I look forward to buying another in 9mm this time. I think the frame is too light for .40 and doesn't seem to handle it well. It wasn't terrible , but was the snappiest .40 I ever shot.

    I prefer the trigger guard release to the grip button type, course that's why I've held out.

    Great! I happen to like the paddle release on the trigger guard. Your finger is already right there and it's quicker than reaching around/up with your thumb to find a button.

    Well I picked up one at the Saxet in Austin on Saturday. The price was right and after walking the room, it was the only PPQ in the whole show. There were a fair amount of P22's and PK380s. And a few PPSs and even PPXs.
    Sadly it was an M2. I don't think we'll see M1's very often now. But I think I'll love it anyway.
