New Member and a Interarms PPK to Share

Hi all.

Picked up this Interarms PPK .380, ser. A046666, at my FFL's shop.
No box, cracked grip. and finger rest filed/sanded flat.

I had a .32 Interarms PPK, that I sold back in '05.
What a mistake that was

Also, any good source of factory black grip panels?
Otherwise, wood will be it.

Nice find. By the serial number your's was probable made in 1990. I have been looking for grips for awhile there isn't a whole lot out there. What ever you decide make sure they work with Interarms. The grips aren't interchangeable.

Keep checking eBay they turn up fairly regularly. There are some no banner grips there now for $24 that should hold you over 'til you find factory.

Fort Smith PPK/S grips fit right on my Interarms and German PPK/S. There is a good chance their PPK grips will also fit. Seems like the S&W grips were the only ones that were a little different.

I have a nice Interarms 1986 PPK. If I found another one for that price, I would take it home.

Thank you for having me.

And thank you to everyone else.

I'm going to try to find a set of the S&W grips while I'm looking.

Since the PPK/S uses flat panel grips there is a chance that may be true, at the very least they might fit with a little triming.

However, The PPK uses a fitted grip and there is a difference between years.

Here's a source, but they're not cheap. The ones I saw are for Interarms...doubt if the S&W grips will interchange. If there was a filed-down thumb-rest, I think the grips you have on there are replacements. Original ones from that time didn't have a thumb rest, so far as I know.

I have a set of KSD grips on one of my PPKs and the fit was perfect right out of the box.

I don't know what "thumb rest" you are talking about.
Those are the factory grips from that time period
