I so want to try one of these but I just have no interest in .380 ACP.
...It's like the 1911, you can argue all day that there are more modern designs which are cheaper and easier to carry, yet people still buy them and carry them, as I imagine they'll continue to do until the invention/commercial availability of the Hand Phaser.
I would like to see the PPK made in Fort Smith. Are these out for sale, or still just a dream? What is the cost of one? What differences, if any, between this new one and the S&W and Interarms models. Thanks.
Let see some pics. What was the "fair" price you paid?My favorite "toy" store next to the local Costco had a stainless one on display when I stopped in the other week. More than a fair price, so it went home with me. I like it...a lot.
A very accurate shooter. Hasn't become my carry firearm yet, but that's probably because I don't have a holster as good as the one for my Shield. Would love to get a set of wood grips for it. Been keeping an eye out for a set that appeal to me.
I purchased mine on March 6th for $570 plus sales tax. That includes a $20 discount for being a veteran. Stainless version.I would like to see the PPK made in Fort Smith.

It does look like a QR code, but my iPhone couldn't read it. It's too small, and the phone couldn't get close enough and stay in focus. One would need a camera with a macro lens to see it clearly. Or, maybe it is a new system based on the QR tech.It looks like a tiny QR code?
The tang is all I notice. It's like a big hairy mole on a beautiful girl's nose.I don't notice the tang anyone
Yeah, the only guy who ever carried the PPK was James Bond, nobody in real life ever carried them. It's not like it served in an army of it's own nation, nor numerous police forces all over the world, nor did it have numerous derivatives which also served in the military, nor was it one of the most popular concealed carry pistols for decades after its release. It's popularity is owed purely to a fictional spy.In this country, at least, the 1911 was familiar to anyone who served in the US armed forces; the Walther was an exotic foreign weapon. The Walther was favored by a fictitious spy; the 1911 championed by the very real (and formidable) Col. Jeff Cooper. He made it the preeminent combat pistol, perhaps only now being eclipsed by Glock and its cousins.
There are some very real parallels between the two; we'll see if it enables Walther to sell some guns. The initial pictures and reports are more positive than expected, which is a good start.
