This precision rimfire features an optics-ready slide, well thought-out ergonomics, and even a first-time-patented ambidextrous reloading mechanism, which includes both the paddle and button release. With four total activation points, the Quad-release mechanism stands out for its versatility. With two 15-round magazines and two optics adaptor plates included, plus easy field-strip capabilities and ultra-low recoil, this pistol is ready to tackle any adventure.

Walther vice president of marketing and product development, Jens Krogh had this to say about it, “The WMP puts Walther in a whole new Category, this pistol is a completely new Platform and is a game changer for us and our customers.  We have worked tirelessly to create the most reliable and ergonomically correct .22 Magnum pistol ever made and it turned out perfect.”
