PPK/S Ft. Smith, back to Walther

My Ft. Smith Walther PPK/S in .380 was purchased on the 15th of April. The first 500 rounds through the gun were perfect. Then suddenly, the slide started locking back when there were still Cartridges in the Magazine. Bang,lock,Bang Bang, lock. etc. Then the rounds started to fail to feed. I could look into the chamber and see the cartridge wedged between the Loaded round indicator and the magazine. I never noticed that the indicator rod protruded past the Breech face before. ???
I called Walther and the pistol shipped back to them today.
I will post the results but I am sure Walther will take care of it.

You probably won't get much information other than a list of parts changed or possibly some work.....like, feed ramp polished. Years and years ago the first time I looked at a PP I thought dang, they left the firing pin sticking out....this thing is going to explode as soon as you chamber a round. I figured no one ever, ever designed a pistol where the firing pin protruded forward of the breech face.....until 40 years later when I looked at a CCP. I'm sure they can fix it.....hope you get it back pronto. 1917

1917 is right about getting little info on what they found, just what they did ( parts ) to fix it. I have had some luck with a followup email to CS asking what happened.

Guess the parts replaced will be a good clue if nothing else.
At least knowing where to look and what to watch for.

It's back !

Ok, I received my PPK/s back from Walther. They replaced the "Ejector" . I shot about 50 rounds through it on Saturday and it worked as perfectly as it did when new.

I wish I knew what happened to the ejector that would cause the slide to lock back on a magazine when rounds were still in it.

I'm just curious how long it took them to turn around the gun?

I hope it holds up this time.

I had the pistol back in my hands in about 6-7 working days. Not to bad.
And yes, will it hold up to another 500 rounds??. I shoot my guns a lot. Bang Bang.Bang

One thing I forgot to mention. Walther did not send my Magazine back with the pistol I will have to call them.
