NEW PPK/S .22LR ..

Sponsored Links
Sorry if this has been discussed at length previously, just wondering when these are going to be available as after hearing they're going to weigh as much as a normal PPK/S, I figured it'd be fun to have one.

I'm sure there will be those that'll say "it isn't as good as an original imported PP or PPK .22, but hey - at least these are being made in Germany..

Maybe that's where all the Canadian pennies are going, to be melted down and cast to make new PPK/S parts.

No, I don't think so. The basic material is to expensive...

AE, this crew is pretty merciless; have a look at the new gun when it is available, and make up your own mind.
Just be aware that what you'll be getting isn't what you used to get, and that there are originals out there (just scored a Manurhin marked one for $450) for less than a king's ransom.
Good luck,
Moon

Moon, did I read that right, you just got a Manhurin 22 for $450? What is it PP,PPK/S or PPK?

It's a Manurhin-marked PPK/s in .22. Truly the first one I've ever seen in .22.

I've not been able to find a solid source for a price, but that didn't seem unreasonable for new in the box, test target and both mags.

C'mon, you went shopping in the Bargain Basement at Macy's.

But since you imagine we are a bunch of cruel merciless hard-to-please cynics: please take that quarter-century antique out and shoot it. Then come back and tell us which gun is a great buy (at about the same price): your old Manurhin or a brand-new glistening, laser-marked, accessory-ready, electroplated-with-goosepoop P22 with the threaded barrel.

We are beside ourselves in anticipation....

Mike, it would appear that I have already voted with my money; advice that I shared with the OP, tho' I'll concur that this was a particularly good deal.

I just didn't want to piss on his cornflakes to too egregious a degree regarding his prospective gun....

So ya' know, I already shot the Manurhin .22, and it shoots quite straight. A buddy is bugging me to buy it...

In today's market, what would it have cost as a MSRP for Walther to have done it right?
