Don't have any hands-on, with this particular Walther. Any time you have the 45 ACP, on a light weight platform like this PPQ. Perceived recoil, will be very "snappy". Affecting the 2nd and 3rd shots.

Your going to have to be doing a lot of live fire drills. So this won't be a problem, in a real personal protection scenario. If you intend it to be your EDC.

Many moons ago, I bought one of the original alloy framed .45 ACP Colt Commanders. After shooting it a couple of times, with U.S. issue ammo. Got rid of it, pronto. Couldn't keep the 2nd and 3rd shots. On a pie plate, except if I was in a phone booth.

Ok I thought maybe someone who owned one would answer but it’s been a couple of days. We have sold a few PPQ’s chambered in 45 but many more in 9 mm. I have not fired the gun in45 but have shot HK’s and Glock’s in 45 including 21’s and 30’s both models of which I own. I don’t see recoil as a problem in these guns and would say it seems less than in a lightweight 1911. Maybe the flex in the polimier frame? The ergonomics on the Walther are much better than Glock’s and should be even more controllable. My PPQ in 9 mm is an extremely good shooter and is my favorite plastic gun. I see no reason the 45 shouldn’t be just as good. In fact I might need one myself.
