At its core, the PDP is a polymer frame, semi-auto, striker-fired handgun chambered in 9mm. Available in two frame sizes — Compact and Full — for concealed carry or service use, the handguns feed from 15/18-round magazines, depending on frame size, with the PDP Compact using standard PPQ 15-round mags. A new Performance Duty Texture with tetrahedron design on all sides of the frame offers an aggressive, but non-abrasive grip ready to endure any weather condition that won’t irritate your body when carried. Backstraps can also be replaced for larger hands.

Atop the frames, steel slides feature three-dot white sights and new front and rear SuperTerrain Serrations that protrude from the surface of the slide to provide a more positive purchase when racking and press-checking.
