    PK380
    Hello - I'll be picking up my first firearm this weekend (yay for pk380!). Before I do that though, I was hoping someone could help point out what I should look for in terms of a cleaning kit. I've looked around, but there are so many options (and none were specific to the PK380 that I could...
  4. Stuck Firing pin

    PK380
    I recently purchased a used PK 380 on a Gun Auction site (if I am allowed to post links to other sites I will do that later, Some gun boards seem to be very touchy about links). It was advertised as: Needless to say, that is not what I got. I work out of state so a few months have passed...

    I've recently been having issues with fail to feed and fail to fire. Additionally I have found when I seat a fully loaded mag, the slide goes forward automatically.

  6. PK380 Return For Repair.

    PK380
    I picked up a new Walther PK380 last Saturday and I'm taking it to Fedex today to return it for repair. When I inspected it at the store I noticed scuff marks on the outside of the barrel and the trigger seemed heavy for a 4 pound SA pull. I asked them to give me another gun and they said they...
  7. Quick Question

    PK380
    So my mother (who is 65 now) was wanting a little gun for her LTC and to keep in her purse. My spare Sig was to big for her hand and she was finding herself scared to shoot it. So we went and tried out a few guns and settled on the PK380 when she fell in love with it. It was perfect for her...

    PK380
    Not sure what happened but...I cleaned my pk380 last night and put everything back together as I have many many times before.

  12. Firing Pin or Primers???

    PK380
    Lately I have been having issues with my handloaded ammo or it might be a firing pin problem. I hope it is the pin cause I made like 900+ rounds of 380! I would say about 1 out of 5 fails to fire. I have read that the pin can some times get carbon build up and stick. Has anyone here had a...
  13. Finding Parts

    PK380
    Hey all, I am brand new to this forum. I purchased a used Walther PK380 from an individual and I am already starting to regret it. It appears there is a problem with the ejector pin that it wobbles and will not eject rounds (I've tried all the typical troubleshooting ideas; different ammo...

  15. Newest Family Member Alert!

    PK380
    Picked up a PK380 from my favorite LGS for the wife this evening. The KelTec P11 wasn't working out, and I wasn't about to tell her to rough it. She's already in love with being able to field strip, rack the slide, and load the magazines with no troubles. (The P11 requires a bit more "oomph" you...

  18. PK380 FTE, FTF Advice

    PK380
    I bought a used PK380 about a year ago used and absolutely love it! I like how it feels, shoots, loads, the fact that it is DA/SA and easy to de-**** among other things. My wife likes shooting as well. Unfortunately during range time I have had probably 3-4 FTE and 1-2 FTF events with several...
