ALL the American made PPKs and PPK/Ssesesses have a cast frame.

This is a $4-500 gun and if you wait a minute you'll save enough for a rhinoplasty . Remember the S&W .380 PPK wasn't discontinued because they were flying off the shelves.

From what I've seen I think calling it a $400 gun is a bit harsh, but $750RRP is blatant price gouging and I point blank refuse to buy any product when the manufacturer is pulling that crap just on principle.

I stopped by one of my local stores to look at shotguns yesterday and happened to see a PPK/S First Edition in the case. The guy said it was their first one and only delivered a week ago. My first time handling a PPK/S and it was heavier than I expected. But man was it beautiful, I was tempted, but for an asking price of $787.99, that's a strong pass. Maybe if it lays around for a few months and gets marked down for the holidays I'll grab it.

A new gun store opened nearby me so I went to check it out. Surprisingly they had both a silver and black PPKS. The black finish looked very good, contrary to the complaints I've read on here. I handled one of them and everything was very tight, from the safety to the slide. I suppose it would smooth out after time. Tight is usually better than too loose. The asking price was $749, which is just too damn high. I've waited several years for this pistol to come out and will wait until it's available online for $600, plus I prefer the regular PPK.

A $600 price point seems to have strong consensus. Personally the other thing I am waiting for is when spare parts kits become available. As a potential heirloom item I want to know they are going to support long term maintenance before I bother buying one.


I really like the pistol, but I'm not one of those "I must have this specific thing at all costs" type of guy.

I would be much more excited if they did away with the "Saturday Night Special" stupidity so we could get more of the old PPK“s.

We've dropped the price $50 to $699 and it's still not moving. They're going online for $600. I'm still of a mind they'll be $500 before too long. There are far too many quality carry guns on the market these days for under $300.

I agree - that is very true. Even $500 is a little bit steep compared to other quality pistols out in the market. Walther has relied on the PPK's iconic status and is doing all of us an injustice. I'm glad to hear everyone's comments especially hearing that it might not be selling very well.

I think that's part of the problem with sales. The .380 stainless PPK/S is not anything close to an iconic Bond gun.
