New Black PPK Sightings?

Just curious if anyone has seen a new black PPK in the wild? I've searched all over my area and my usual online retailers and can't find one.

I'll see them online every once in awhile, but they're out of stock very quickly. I'm not sure why the black isn't as widely available as the stainless, but I find it helpful to search using the manufacturer's item number "4796002 PPK" to help weed out all of the results for the PPK/S.

I've been waiting for the black PPK, and I hope I start seeing them under $600 soon like some of the stainless models I've come across.

I messaged Walther on Facebook and asked about availability and this is what they said...

"Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The Black PPK has been shipping for around 5 months. Your local gun shop should definitely be able to order one from their distributor.

It has been a struggle to get the PPK and PPK/s to market. I'm really sorry for all the frustration. We've been maxing out our efforts to up production to meet demand. There were a TON of backorders that needed to be filled on them. Thanks a ton for your patience. (We can't even buy one as an employee until production is completely caught up.) You'll have yours before I get one! Ha ha ha!"

You make it sound like a reclusive Yeti. I would agree that it's Abominable...

The only ones that I've seen so far have been stainless.

There sure hasn't been much demand here in Florida. The PPK and PPK/S have been sloooow movers. On the other hand the P365 has been flying off the shelves.

James Bond never went to Florida. He usually goes to cool places like Monte Carlo.
