The Walther CCP is operated by a gas-delayed blowback system, using gas pressure from the ignited cartridge by directing it through a small port in the barrel in front of the chamber to slow down and delay the rearward motion of the slide. This design is nearly identical to the design of the Heckler & Koch P7. Walther calls this system Softcoil. Unlike the Walther P99 or Walther PPQ, the CCP has a slim manual thumb safety. There is an additional internal safety that acts as a firing pin block. The ergonomic grip is a shorter version of the PPQ's grip. The capacity of the magazine is 8 rounds. The CCP has an overall length of 6.41 inches (163 mm) , its width is 1.18 inches (30 mm) and its height is 5.1 inches (130 mm). The length of the barrel is 3.54 inches (90 mm). Considering the CCP's size, the 5.5-pound-force (24 N) trigger pull and the 0.27-inch (6.9 mm) trigger travel are relatively high.
Walther has prepared a list of "test" ammunition and suggested grip instructions for best function, available to owners of the pistol upon request.
In March 2017, Walther issued a recall notice on all CCP pistols, because of what they call a potential condition in the CCP that can cause the firearm, if dropped, to discharge regardless of the manual safety being engaged or disengaged. Walther has issued a voluntary recall as a result and will be upgrading all affected CCPs in order to remove the risk of a drop-fire.
