Hello Pilotsteve,


I can't see your pictures of grasping the PPK, it seems the images are no longer available

Any tips to resolve this problem ?


Thank you very much for your help!

What i do to avoid slide bite:
-- When first on the firing line, I practice griping my PPK with slide locked to the rear. Doing so helps me adjust my grip before shooting. My most common adjustment is to straiten my thumb. If I bend my thumb, the large joint tends to get in the way.
-- I prefer flat bottom mags so I can slip my picky under the grip.
-- I limit my round count so hand grip fatigue / my concentration doesn't cause me to get sloppy. Any tenderness signals it's time to stop.

There is a thread or two on the WF about slide bite, so you might do a search and see what people say. I haven’t experienced this, but common suggestions include not holding the pistol in a very high Glockesque grip and wearing a shooting glove (e.g., fingerless). I soon found that the grip height of the PPK just wasn’t for me, even with a finger-rest magazine. The PP and the PPK/S fit my hand well, so that is all that I now own. Good luck!

I found it as well. IMO, this should be a sticky entitled Proper Walther PP Series Grip or something to that affect.
