What do you mean, nobody's asked these questions? The PP section here is full of these exact questions.

Nobody asked these questions on the latest Facebook post yet. But they have been asked countless times in previous posts of course.

This just reinforces why I cancelled my "fakebook" account over a decade ago, and NEVER looked back.

How can anybody not want the cleanest and most expertly machined version of the PPK and PPK/s Model to date? Glad to hear that Umarex was able to improve on the quality of those ZM, Ulm, and IA/Ranger pistols.

I just slammed them (in the comments) on their flippant denial of .32/7.65 as possibility.

I could be convinced that modern manufacturing technology has made this one of the most consistent, well-made PP series guns yet. But they're just ignoring their consumers if they dismiss .32.

I suspect the number of consumers theyre ignoring is insufficiently large to overcome the economies of scale to favor producing in another caliber.

The .32 is preferred by historical fans, nostalgians, and plinkers, but people who buy this because they actually need a gun have always trended toward the .380.

Thats why most of the Interarms-era PP-series guns were .380. Back when the first German police surplus .32 PPs started coming in, quite a few were actually converted to .380.

While that nonsense has stopped and folks are buying the .32 PPs as collectibles, I doubt a new .32 could pay for itself.

I think there are more than just a few reasons NOT to build one .32 even though I would consider one. Beyond the long term PPK fan base, how many folks out there want a relatively heavy blow back .32? Seems to be a lot of opinions on what is the better/best/minimum caliber for self defense. Don’t remember .32 being high on the list. Even though it worked quite well in Bond movies especially with a suppressor. Anybody priced out .32 rounds lately? Not sure I’d want to spend a lot of time at the range shooting at paper. How many of the current PPK purists would buy it considering the comments about the S&W and now Walther use of the extended tang.

.32 ACP is one of the most common cartridges that I shoot. It looks like I won't get to buy a Ft.Smith PPK now.
