I will admit that picture doesnt look great. I did not expect a nice old school bluing job but the finish on that PPK looks....industrial.

Hopefully looks better in person.

Why can't Walther do something similar to what S&W does with their Classic Revolver Series. They could make a PP or, better yet, a PPK in blue. It would cost real money, but if Smith can do it, then why can't Walther do it. And how about they put a bullet in the head of that abomination of a handgun called a PPK/s while they're at it. There, I've said it.

Probably not cerakote or paint. There is a chemical process that renders a black surface on stainless steel, and that is likely what's used, so that only stainless steel is used in production of both lines. This allows standardization of material procurement, feed rates and lubricants for the cutting tools, and heat treatment and other production processes.

That makes good economic sense for Walther Arms, but whether it vacates the underlying appeal of the gun is a legitimate question.

PPK in SS or Black?

Personal preferences are just part of our freedoms...and everyone is different...but I still prefer the Stainless version...even at 23 years old (and after thousands of rounds) this I/A PPK/S .380 still looks pretty good

This was my first thought EXACTLY.


This black finish makes the gun look like a toy. Walther needs to rethink this finish if they want "classic Walther" collectors opening their wallets.


I have a few of the "blackest" blued finish Walther pistols, late production P5s, and they don't look like toys.....

Abomination?
Well. Guess you aren’t gonna shoot mine then. I have a 2019 PPK/S in stainless and, yes, I’ll almost certainly get a black one too.

I have the new stainless PPK/S. I would consider getting a black one in the PPK size if they ever make it.
