Bought my PPK/S 22 from Academy for $299 a couple weeks ago after reading a lot of user's comments on the firearm. After handling and shooting it, I love the firearm and think it gets treated very unfairly, perhaps by people with high expectations when it came out. The finish is superb (not "pot metal" as many people seem to think, though of course not comparable to the original blued steel) and the action is very smooth once cleaned properly and broken in. 480 rounds of HV ammo, zero firearm-related malfunctions- two failures to fire due to bad primer. Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase.

I also bought mine from the Academy just a couple days ago for $299. I think the Ulm/Do made ppk's get a bad rap mainly from the PPK purist's. But asking around elsewhere and with ppl that actually own one you'll see that they're really fun pistols to shoot. Are they perfect? no...Fun to shoot? yes!

No we didn't have high expectations of the Umarex iteration of the PPK/S. We just had expectations that it would be of similar quality to the Ulm version. It isn't.

I'm glad you enjoy yours. The one I purchased as a trainer for my wife. It sits in its box at the bottom of the safe as I wouldn't feel comfortable selling something with a rotten trigger like that to anyone one.

Tell the buyer it has a rotten trigger, price it accordingly, and be rid of it. There is always somebody who knows ---or thinks he knows-- how to fix it.

This is why you do your research and check the firearm out before committing to buy. Find a dealer that rents or loans firearms out for use before buying. It's not the guns fault. People with high expectations that do not do their homework is a recipe for disappointment.

May I suggest the Ruger SR22 as a trainer in the future? :rolleyes:

>>>...What do you find to be rotten about the trigger?...<<<

Yeah. I'm sorta' curious about that myself ??

Apart from a heavy double action trigger...the triggers on the three(3) different Walter/Umarex PPK/S .22's that I've shot all seemed just fine.
