Walther has announced the release of their first-ever .22 Magnum pistol: the WMP, saying:

“This isn’t just another target practice plinker, Walther has developed a high quality, lightweight, easy-to-shoot, and affordable pistol for shooters who want to stay READY as part of their active outdoor lifestyle.”

They go on to say,

“Featuring an optics-ready slide, best-in-class ergonomics, and a first-time patented ambidextrous reloading mechanism incorporating both paddle and button releases called the Quad Release. With 4 total activation points, the Quad Release mechanism is the most versatile ambidextrous mag release ever created.”

It will ship with either two flush-fit 15-round Walther WMP magazines or 10-round WMP mags depending on local restrictions. It will also come with a pair of optic adapter plates for most RDS footprints.
