.22 PPK/S DA trigger pull?

Recently purchased a PPK/S .22 cal.
Very happy with the looks and feel of the weapon but was rather astonished by the DA trigger pull. Iím a big lad and itís workable but...
Went to the Walther site and see the DA pull on the .22 is 17.5 pounds and for the .380 version itís 13.something.
Is there a reason, technical or otherwise, for the .22ís strongman DA pull?

I've had my PPK/s 22lr for a couple years and have shot thousands & thousands of rounds thru it. Although the trigger is heavy, it's smooth and will get better with use over time.

I have one of the PPK/S .22lr and yes the DA pull is quite strong. Why? I have no clue. At the same time, since I rarely, if ever, fire it in DA the 17 lbs pull falls into the non-problem category. If I were carrying the thing for protection, with one in the chamber, I might be concerned. As it is, mine is a fun gun to take to the range, where I have the time to pull back the hammer. And yes, my .380 has a much lighter DA pull, but the SA is almost scary light.

Thanks. Looking forward to putting it through its paces.
It really is a beautiful gun (and I’m not normally a stainless fan) but it should tide me over till the .380 version is out.
