Handguns at Frankonia: pistols for IPSC shooters, an iconic revolver and a masterpiece – with videos!

With customers in 100 countries, Frankonia is a German exporter and wholesaler which is a market leader. We recently visited the impressive Frankonia flagship store in Rottendorf near Würzburg. We took a look at several handguns from their extensive range that are particularly suitable for IPSC shooting. But today we also present a rimfire pistol, a legendary revolver from the world of film and a handgun for hunting use. Watch our videos from the Frankonia flagship store, where we had Julius Fach show us the individual models up close.

Walther PDP Pro NT OR pistol

We start with the Walther PDP Pro NT, which is available fin several versions and sizes. NT stands for "No Thread" – the gun has a standard barrel without thread. The numerous models in the successful Walther PDP series ("Performance Duty Pistol") were developed as modern semi-automatic pistols especially for demanding sport shooters and law enforcement/military. In all versions, the striking look of the pistols is characterised by deep slide serrations, which not only look impressive, but also ensure safe handling in all weather conditions.

The Walther PDP Pro NT OR comes with an aluminium magwell for sporty reloading, a maritime coating on the internal parts that offers additional protection against corrosion and an optics-ready version that allows the mounting of various red dot sights. However, a classic, GLOCK-compatible sight can also be fitted. Another highlight of the Walther PDP Pro NT is the Dynamic Performance Trigger, which breaks precisely at 25 N and thus offers a short reset for quick shot strings. Depending on hand size, preference and intended use, the Walther is available in Compact and Full Size versions with barrel lengths of 4, 4.5 and 5 inches.  Find out more in the video linked above!
