Ive been waiting awhile to own a PPK, so when I went into the gun store today and saw it there on sale, I decided to use my x-mas money to buy it. I cant wait to shoot this thing! Right now Im looking for a nice set of wood grips for it (the plastic grips make it feel cheap IMO), and a good holster.

P.S. Is there a trick to field stripping the gun? I did everything in the manual, but I still cant get the slide to come off...

Field strip.

Unload.
Remove magazine.
Take safety off.
Pull down trigger guard and move to the side, resting on the frame.
grasp the rear of the slide and pull back and up. The slide should come off easily!!
Remove recoil spring noting that it is smaller at one end.
That should be it!!
If you have a Makarov, then the field disassembly is the same!!

I did that, but when the slide comes all the way back, it will not pull up. Im gonna bring it back to the store today to see if they can give me a hand with it.

Man, that sucks. I know its never fun to have to send a new gun in. I had to do that to a Springfield Defender comped 1911 in the 1990s. After I shot it the first time, the guiderod reverse plug was stuck in there. I had to send it in for them to disassemble the gun. They fixed it and never had an issue. But, this was before they made ya pay for next day shipping. So, it wasn't that big of a cost.

Bad part is when you take one apart so people can see how simple it is. Then can't put back together . Had this happen with a PPK/S at store. I had owner reassemble I explained I have limited use of my fingers and sometimes can't make them work right. . Wasn't a total lie I do have limited or ring and pinkie use but has never stopped me stripping or reassembleing my PPK/S
