The lucky side of owning a US produced PPK or PPKS in .32 is that they are often found to have a higher reliability record than those made in .380; probably, for the same reason the German 7.65's enjoy a higher score for reliability. Tack on that both are more rare here in the US, and it's a plus/plus. Unfortunately, that often makes the price higher.

Both my PPKs are very reliable so far. I only use hardball, though. The stainless Interarms in .380 is more accurate in my hands than the German .32 for whatever reason. I don't find the recoil of the .380 especially unpleasant, but it is a bit snappy. And I'm recoil sensitive, but have been shooting .45s and .357s, so perhaps my frame of reference is skewed. The .32 is very pleasant,

Interesting! Your picture is the first time I've seen a US-made Interarms 7.65/32 where the 2nd line of text in the roll mark is centered nicely, the way it should be.

Every picture I've seen until now, looked like this attachment below. Which looks super lazy and half-ass to me. Why are most justified so poorly? Seems like when it says the full "7.65mm/32 ACP", it's done right. But with just "32 ACP," they didn't bother to center it.

I never noticed that before, but you are correct. It IS lazy and half-assed.

At least they got it on straight, and not shallow on one end or the other, like some of the earlier guns.
