Thanks for your input on the gun. I'm definately looking to purchase one in near future. I've one nearby for $470. I was wondering what price you and other have paid for this new version of the ppk/s? I know it is a markup from MSRP, but considering the gun market price hikes, i might just bite the bullet and get it.

Good report bdmd. I expect your pistol needs a little breaking in and short pistols are always much more difficult to shoot accurately than long ones. Practice will improve that. I rarely shoot DA....except with my DAO pistols and some revolvers. M1911
Agreed. There's no way that's a 17.5 lb pull.

That to me is a little steep. I paid $379.99, which is o.k. for what this is. It's a fun little plinker but imho it's not the "gotta have it" kind of gun that you're going to pay a $100 premium for.

Look, whatever other reservations there may be about the gun, if it's not for CC (and there are much better choices), then simply **** it and fire it.

It would be a much better 'trainer' for a centerfire version if the double/single action issue was more like the larger caliber guns, but it is what it is.

The rimfire ignition is at least part of the problem; I've been schooled by an S&W armorer, and do a fair job slicking up the double action trigger on Smith J-frames. I bought a 2" M-63 that absolutely flummoxed me; if I took anything off the mainspring, it would misfire on double action. Finally made it go away.
Of course, the older PPK/s .22 doesn't have a hernia-inducing double action, so it is indeed a question for tomorrow night's forum.

I have the nickle one and although the DA does require a decent pull, I must have strong fingers as I have no issue with it. On top of that I have so many older revolvers that are SA it is almost second nature for me to pull the hammer back before firing, something that takes merely a fraction of a second. As far as the so called "pot metal" construction, the P-1 has had an alloy frame back 50 years or more with no negatives I've heard about. I had another "replica" firearm in 22, a Chiapp 1911-22. The alloy used on it was very porous and showed it in the finish. It also was only a look alike, in function it was not like a true 1911. This PPK/S 22 has the same overall function as a PP, PPK, PPK/S with the concessions needed to fire a rimfire round. I've put over 500 rounds through mine now, also did a little write up on it earlier with some pics. I'm tickled pink to have mine.

This thread needs to be moved to the New Production Section.....

that being said....
My Umarex PPK/S 22 LR replica still has an insanely heavy DA pull weight. The finish is wearing faster then the finish on a piece that stays in the case until at the range should. While the SA is nice and crisp this was purchased as a training weapon. It fails for my intended purpose. It may make for a nice plinker but over all I'm very disappointed in the piece.

Isn't there a way to avoid DA completely by dropping the hammer for the first shot? How specifically would I do that (e.g. rack the slide and drop the hammer in "fire" mode?
