I snagged a NIB 75th Anniversary Walther PPK (blued, chambered in .380 Auto, and made by Smith & Wesson) last month for a mere $500. It is #1382 of 1500 made. I took photos of it this past Sunday, showing some details of the engraving and gold lettering:

Looking at your photo, I must say you look like "DATA," or
Brent Spiner!

Good job finding the PPK/S for that price!

I hope it shoots well for you. My PPK/S-1 took over 800 rounds
before it settled down and became reliable enough for me to
carry it on a daily basis. However, mine is in stainless steel.
Your blued gun shouldn't take that many rounds to break in.
Enjoy!

Very nice photography Ken. You really captured the detail in the engraving. I really like the wood grips. Looks nice with the bluing.

It sure looks like as the craftsmanship on the S&W is not as good as on the German made ones....
On the last pic, look at the mag release button.....non the less it is such a good looking PPK

nice looking pistol. I just do not think that they should be labeled as an anniversary model, since Walther discontinued production of the PP/PPK in 1999.

Lunde,

Did I read that correctly? Is that a PPK/S as opposed to the PPK? My wife wants a PPK/S. She really likes the 75th Anniversary edition but I was thinking it was made only in the standard capacity. Thank you for any clarification on how many might have been made.:cool:

Happy New Year all,

Russell

This is what threw me.:confused:

Anyway, my dear one will surly be pleased with a new stainless PPK/S when the time comes.;)

For myself, a WWII PP would be perfect.:D

I must admit I just traded my 75th, Av, PPK 380 the day before yesterday for a Kimber. Not because it was a bad gun but because the ammo is nowhere to be found and the S+W recall included the 75th, PPK's and I didn't want to go through the hassel. So today I saw it out there for $625.00 with only 45 rounds put through it.:D

Check the Sticky notice in the P99 sub-section, Great Sites for Walther Lovers, and you'll find a number of sites listed for grip-makers. If you take your time and sort through them carefully, you'll doubtless find a grip that catches your eye at a decent price.

Here's just a starter for you:

Happy hunting.
