We spoonerized the "No brass, no ammo" part.
Have to believe that there is good reason not to use aluminum in rifle cases especially; higher pressure, higher residual pressure, and temperature for three.

Brass is also more suitable for creating trench art and melting into tables, trays, spoons and vases

PS: After losing a pre-war PPK extractor, I now just stay away from .32 & .380 aluminum cartridges in my PPK pistols. They get fed only the finest (brass cartridges) chow. [When I owed a Makarov PM (also a blow back) it would eat brass/alum/steel like M&Ms.]

ComBlock arms were designed to be peasant-proof and run on the steel cased junk. Western arms were designed to be more selective in their eating habits. I don't try to run the Beemer on kerosene.

Does ANYONE know if the Ft. Smith extractors (.32) will fit a 1966 PPK? If you have a line on where to find .22 PPK extractors please let me know.

I don't know, but my guess is the .32 extractors Fort Smith has on hand as spare parts are likely Smith & Wesson .32 extractors. Check the tables of vintage Walther sellers at your next big gun show. The guys who specialize in selling vintage Walthers are good sources of parts and magazines. The gun show guy I've bought my Walthers from, over the years, will even do minor repairs on the spot.

Just buy one and try it. They are inexpensive. If it work, it works. If not, look for a specific 7.65mm/32ACP one.
