The Walther PD380, the company’s new .380 ACP concealed carry pistol, is now available for purchase.
While the Walther PD380 officially launched in late 2023, the company’s new concealed carry handgun is only just now hitting store shelves. Walther is advertising the pistol as being extremely comfortable, reliable and ready to provide an unmatched concealed carry experience.
Naturally, the Walther PD380 is chambered for .380 ACP, and as a concealed carry pistol it features a single-stack 9-round magazine to help keep its profile slim. Speaking of which, the PD380 has an overall thickness of 1.24 inches, an overall length of 6.48 inches and an overall height of 5.15 inches. Its barrel is 3.7 inches long and it weighs 20.6 ounces with an empty magazine. It’s not the smallest or lightest .380 carry pistol out there, but Walther clearly prioritized shootability over size with this design. The company also notes that the PD380 has minimal recoil and that its slide is very easy to rack, making it a great option for new shooters too.
The PD380 is also ambidextrous, as it features a manual thumb safety on both sides of the slide as well as Walther’s paddle magazine release that can be actuated when held in either hand. However, the pistol will only lock back when an empty magazine is inserted, and the hammer must be manually lowered while the safety is engaged to decock it. On the other hand, this also allows for cocked and locked carry for those who prefer it. The final points worth mentioning are the pistols’ industry-standard rear sights, their aggressively textured grips and their front and rear slide serrations.
Jens Krogh, vice president of marketing and product development for Walther Arms, Inc., said this about the new handgun:
Comfort, reliability, and confidence is at the forefront when you’re carrying, which is exactly what the PD380 was designed for. It embodies the perfect fusion of power, elegance, and ease … Our dealers have been waiting for this to be in their stores and we’re excited for consumers to experience the increased confidence built from having the PD380 by their side.
Each Walther PD380 will ship with two magazines and MSRP is $449.
