Flush Magazines for the PPK/S.22

Several months I purchased a PPK/S in 380 and am very pleased with it. It is a simple uncomplicated gun that shoots very well. I quickly realized that I did not like the extended finger grip and changed both magazines to flat floor plates.

Shortly after that the American Rifleman had an add for the PPK/S.22 and it intrigued me. My local gun dealer ordered one for me which came with one magazine with a finger extension. Of course I did not like the finger extension. I called Walther to see if they made a magazine for the PPK/S.22 with a flat floor plate even if it only held eight or seven rounds. They informed me that they did not.

Question. Does anyone know where a magazine for the PPK/S.22 with a flat floor plate can be obtained?

As a side line. During my last contact with Walther concerning parts for the 380 magazines they informed me that they did not carry parts for the magazines any more. This means that if you lose a small part of the magazine you will have to buy a whole net magazine. Great work!

the body of the magazine extends abort 5/16 inch past the bottom of the grip and into the finger rest.
You are correct. That (extra) length of the magazine exists to accommodate the 10-round capacity that has become the popular standard for .22LR semi-autos.

Therefore, a flat/flush floorplate is not possible unless the overall shell of the magazine were to be shortened, thus cutting back the capacity to 8 rounds (which I believe is the original capacity of the vintage PPK/S .22 LR).

Personally, I actually wouldn't mind an 8-round mag if it were to sport a flat floorplate.
