|Read before you purchase. EVERYONE says the same thing: the holster is too tight. There is no retention screw or way to loosen it (naturally). Some people say "save your money and purchase a better fit holster for the Walther," but the thing is - there isn't one. None specifically made for this weapon, anyway. So,, I purchased it, knowing the problems in advance. The only thing I was suspicious of was the people claiming it loosened their front sights. Looking down the holster, there is a groove/canal for the sight, so it should have no reason to fall off - until it happened to me. Now, I have been slaving and studying this holster for three weeks and I believe I have discovered some of the issues. I own two Walthers, one is an older model, and one is brand new. The holster was originally tight for both pistols. I tried the heat gun and that didn't work. This is plastic, not Kydex, and it doesn't act the same way. While the holster was still hot, it worked great, but when it cooled down, it went right back to being super tight. One thing I discovered was shoving a AA battery down in the trigger well and leaving it for a day or two will stretch out the trigger area. The holster is so tight that it bent the battery. Crazy. So, with the newly modified trigger (where the retention is supposed to be), I tried it out. The older Walther works GREAT. It slides in and out no problem. But, the newer Walther still got stuck. Examining it, I realized that when trying to place the weapon in the holster, the slide would be forced back. So, the trigger well wasn't the issue. If you look closely, you'll see that there are rectangular divots on each side where the slide should click in by the Walther logo. In my older model, the logo is smooth and divotted to match. In the newer model, there are ridges in the slide, and those ridges make it too fat for the holster. And there is no way to stretch that bit out. So, Dremel it was. I unfortunately didn't have the right sized bit to get into the nook and cranny of it, up near the front sight groove. So, I got some sand paper, and rubbed that sucker out. I got a good rhythm of a four count, counting up to 75 high, 75 low on each side, totaling one thousand strokes inside that thing. The divots are now smooth with the rest of the holster. For good measure, I took a small piece of plastic, about the width of a toothpick, and shoved it into the wedge of the trigger well, separating it as much as I could, and super-gluing the piece in there. So, I know you purchased a holster expecting it to work, and it SHOULD, but this baby needs a little modification and love. After all that work, this holster is great, and still has great retention. I'm not going into combat with it, but I can still run, jump, and perform Tactical Response drills. I agree that you shouldn't NEED to do this level of work for something you purchase, but at the moment (at least to my knowledge) there isn't another specially designed holster for the Walther P22. They molded this off the older model, so if that's what you have, shove a AA battery in the trigger well for 2-3 days and you'll be fine. If you own a NEW Walther, you gotta do some work, or just buy a generic holster.
