In 2018, Smith & Wesson launched it’s widely popular 380 Shield EZ pistol. The premise of the mid-sized .380 Shield EZ was that it was easy to load, easy to rack and easy to shoot and that combination has made it a popular option for new lady shooters. The new pistol has proven to be as reliable as any of the other S&W offerings, but if there is one issue we have seen on the range with the S&W is the ability of some shooters to consistently engage the backstrap safety.
In January, Walther quietly introduced the mid-sized CCP M2 chambered in .380 ACP. Walther describes the new CCP, as “the first polymer pistol with Softcoil gas technology. This technology improves the user’s experience by reducing overall felt recoil and allowing the slide to be easily manipulated regardless of hand strength. The CCP is also the most ergonomic and comfortable handgun in Walther’s dynamic concealed carry lineup. Tool-less takedown and a fixed barrel allow for easy cleaning and maintenance, making this one of the most accessible pistols available today.
With additional popular features such as an external safety, front, and rear slide serrations and a reversible magazine release, the CCP M2 handgun is sure to become a valuable addition to your everyday carry.”
Walther has long been known for high quality, ergonomic handguns, the addition of the new CCP in .380 looks to continue this tradition. If you are looking for a quality carry gun, that is easy and fun to shoot on the range, stop by our Pro Shop and check out the new CCP M2 .380.
