  1. PPK/S rear sight screw stuck

    PP and TP Series
    As the title suggests, I believe my rear sight screw on my PPK/S is stuck. Its a headless screw and I’ve used both the hex wrench provided with the gun and my own set and nothing seems to turn it. Should I continue to mess with it? Should I use oil to loosen it up, or should I just play it safe...
  2. PPK/S Funny Noise

    PP and TP Series
    I have a post-recall Smith and Wesson PPK/S. I've noticed when dry firing in double action (with a snap cap) that there's a strange springy twang after the hammer falls. I tried this with an empty chamber, and it did the same thing. In single action, there is very little twang. Has anyone else...

    Walther General Discussions
    I bought these grips at a flea market recently and the package was marked Pre WWII PP grips. Just trying to verify if that is correct.

  5. Why James Bond Doesn't Use A Walther PPK In Some Movies

    Walther General Discussions
    Hope this is the appropriate sub forum for such a posting...I know in my case I only considered buying a Walther, both because of the Bond connection AND Walther’s history AND Walther’s build quality. https://screenrant.com/james-bond-movies-no-walther-ppk-gun-reason/

  8. Happy New Year to Me.

    PP and TP Series
    I happily purchased a new Ft. Smith stainless PPK today from my local gun store. I even got the one in the back, still in the shipping bag. Finally, a new Walther that only says Walther on it. It's a tight little machine. I need to go exercise it.:D

  10. Interarms ranger PPK slide stop?? mfg 5/94

    PP and TP Series
    I just got an Interarms ranger PPK mfg 5/94. Went shooting today. The gun fires fine but when it fires the last round, the slide does not stop and remain open. It just closes with a cocked hammer. As I am new to a PPK, is this proper? Is there no slide stop on the last fired round to keep the...
  11. Finally, my PPK

Searching now for more info on the gun such as approximate mfg date (A075XXX). It appears somewhere between 1990-1995 based on some searches...
  12. Pre-war 1936 PPK Allemagne pictures

    PP and TP Series
    First off, this is not my gun, it belongs to the LGS my wife works at, and while it will eventually go on Gun Broker, this is not a value question. I am going to go photograph this gun sometime this weekend. I have read up on the history a little bit, but I can't hardly find any pictures of...

    PP and TP Series
    Hi. New to the forms and it looks like there’s a wealth of info on here. I’m looking for any resources to track the history of a PPK that I just inherited. It is a PPK with the “crown over N” proof. It also had markings on the left side PDM 275. It has no eject button for the magazine. The...

  15. PPK .32 hammer follow problem

    PP and TP Series
    Hi, I have read several posts on this seemingly fairly common problem, but I just can't pinpoint my problem. When firing, the hammer occasionally falls, and it engages the DA lever, so it doesn't fall all the way down. But I have to recock it. New round chambers like it should. This applies to...

    Guys, I’m looking to make my own lanyard for my PPK and need the dimensions of the lanyard loop hole. Unfortunately my PPK is not in front of me and wont be for a few weeks so I cant measure it myself. Anyone able to either measure the size of the hole or point me to a resource that has the...
  19. Interarms PPK 20# Spring Reliability

    PP and TP Series
    My '92/93 Interarms .380 PPK is about to hit 5000 rounds (in my hands), and I've had a few issues most likely related to a weakened recoil spring (mostly failure to return to battery). So, I need a replacement, and wondered how much success others have had with the 20# Wolff spring. My...
