I believe the components are still made in Germany but that will probably change at a later date.

I had one briefly. I didn't like how the optic plates didn't have positive locating lugs to the slide. And the way they got the optic "lower" in the slide was by raising the top of the slide compared to the PPQ. But you still can't co-witness with normal sights.

After messing with various pistols and optics, I have come to the conclusion that optics should be direct mounted with no adapter plates. And the "modularity" of the PDP is non-sensical without a separate FCU.

Among striker guns, the P320 is getting better and better as time goes on. I still have some VP9's because they share mags with my P30's, but overall, I don't need any other striker guns except my 320's.

Must have been an early model. The plates and machining of the slide have changed.

Yeah, they changed it because of zero failures. They added the recoil lugs that should have been there in the first place "just because". The Q4 and Q5 had recoil lugs on their optics plates. They tried to cost reduce the PDP and had to go back to a better design.

Public beta testing, once again.

Like Sigs didn't have their share of beta testing. LOL

I think you even alluded to it in your assessment that the P320 is "getting better and better". Well it should because it was flawed big time, from the beginning.

I bought the 4" Compact a few months ago.
My first Walther. I really like it, I changed the sights and that is all. It does have a good trigger but a lot of take up, not sure if I will live with it or change it out.
