Walther CCP (Concealed Carry Pistol) is a new handgun from legendary German gun making company Carl Walther. First offered in 2014, it was developed primary for UScivilian market, as a dedicated concealed carry self-defense firearm for civilian shooters, especially for women. Special efforts were made to decrease dimensions of the pistol and to make it easier to operate for wide variety of non-professional shooters.

 

To make gun easier to cycle manually (with lighter than usual return spring), it was built around gas-delayed blowback action. In this system, some powder gases are fed into cylinder, located below the barrel, to push forward against the piston that is linked to the slide, slowing down its initial recoil. Pistol features slim polymer frame with carefully sculptured grip, pre-cocked striker-fired trigger for lighter and shorter trigger pull, and manual thumb safety.  Single stack magazine holds 8 rounds of ammunition, magazine release button is conveniently located at the base of trigger guard. External slide release lever is provided for faster reloads. Standard sights are of fixed, three-dot type.
