In the USA, there are >17M people who legally carry, either with CCWs or under Constitutional Carry laws.
The James Bond/OO7 flicks are more popular now than they've been since the 1960s and he's back to using a PPK (albeit a PPK/S).
I'm sure there's a LOT of guys, maybe even gals too, who would like to CCW a PPK. But it has a major weakness compared to its modern polymer framed competition (Kahr P380, Ruger LCP, etc): it's weight. But there is be solution: reintroduce the PPK-L.
S&W has been selling revolvers made of aluminum-scandium alloy for >20 years. Since it has proven itself strong enough for .357 mag and .44 mag, it should be strong enough for even .380
Walther could license S&W to build PPK-Ls for them. (They've had experience dealing with each other in the past when S&W was making PPK & PPK/S.) Or Walther could license S&W's alloy formula and make them themselves. Or, if the alloy is no longer protected by patents, Walther could just make it themselves.
Personally, I'd LOVE a Scandium alloy PPK-L in 7.65mm/.32 acp -- a light recoiling light PPK.
How do we get Walther to look into this??? (I'm assuming scandium-aluminum alloy will work as well in a semi as a revolver (e.g., no galling issues).)
