old geezer

I have a German 1978 PPK .380 NIB. Should I decide to fire it, would there be any problems? Considering it's never been fired and 41 years old. (I have disassembled and lubed it, it's mint.) Thanks in advance to who ever replies, M

In a normal case it's absolutely safe to use/shoot your gun. Perhaps it needs a little bit time to break in. It's quasi new .

What sort of problem did you have in mind?

It might depend on who you intend to shoot.

Look, if you're worried about having to break in your mint 1978 PPK/S, I'll gladly trade you mine for it. Also a 1978 PPK/S, well broken in, and looks like it
