Walther Arms Inc. has recently discovered a potential safety issue with certain PPS M2 pistols shipped before August 1, 2017. Walther is voluntarily initiating a recall to protect the safety of its customers because under certain conditions it is possible that some of these pistols may fire when dropped. According to the company, the only PPS M2 pistols affected by this recall are those in the following serial number ranges:
AN3020 - AN9999 AR0000 - AR9999
AS0000 - AS9999 AO0000 - AO9999
AT0000 - AT9999 AP0000 - AP9999
AU0000 - AU7502 AQ0000 - AQ9999
If you own a PPS M2 between any of the above serial number ranges, please do not load or fire your Walther PPS M2 pistol and contact the company immediately to arrange to have your pistol upgraded free of charge, using the following steps.

Please make sure to include the serial number of your PPS M2 pistol, which is located on the right side of the pistol.
Step 2 – After you contact Walther and the company confirms that your pistol is subject to this recall, Walther will email or mail you a prepaid overnight shipping label with instructions so that you can return your unloaded pistol to the company, free of charge.
