When Walther released the original CCP it was met with much anticipation. Straight blowback 9mm is too much to handle, but Walther’s piston system known as “softcoil” offered to reduce recoil below standard Browning systems. The “softcoil” also applied to the recoil spring which didn’t need to be as heavy and so the gun is easier to rack. The combination of softer recoil and easier slide operation was appealing to newer shooters and those more sensitive to recoil. Where the original CCP lost some of those users was that disassembly required a tool.
Walther has learned from that experience and responded to public demand with the CCP M2. Take-down is now tool-less, but all of the original benefits remain. To see just how easy it is now, and have a closer look watch the video below.
The rest of the pistol remains generally unchanged. In fact the specifications of the original remain true:
- CALIBER: 9MM
