Walther has announced a new model of the PDP, the PDP Pro-E. From what I can gather from the press release this new model sits between a standard PDP and a PDP Pro. These models are available in 4" and 4.5" barrel lengths.

Pricing was not in the initial news I saw, but I imagine the pricing will be between thsoe two models and personalyl see this is a smart in-between model that offers some enhancements while not pushing the gun too far into the competition world; an enhanced carry gun. A major notable feature is the use of polymer for the trigger and magazine baseplates. Those who spend a lot of time shooting know that metal triggers can get hot and that metal baseplates, while great for speed, also reduce the safety feature of a magazine blowing out to relieve pressure should some sort of catastrophic failure happen.

With those features combined I see the new PDP Pro E as an enthusiast-level pistol that can serve for both carry and realistic competition. The original press release from Walther is below.
