Took my new S&W/Walther PPK/S in 380 to the range yesterday. I cleaned it before testing. I put 50 rounds of FMJ wenchester in the white box, and 1 magazine of Federal Hydrashocks. Ran perfect. No jams of any type. Here is a pic shot at 25 feet.

My PPK/S...

One of my favorite guns, but a pain in the butt to clean, as I'm sure you'll find out!

Good shooting, congrats on the new purchase.

Why is it a pain to clean Theirs nothing to the take down and a few min to clean. Wish my 1911's were as easy.

I guess my fingers are too fat to get inside the slide!

I'm a hands-on kind of gun-cleaner. Tiny spaces in there, it's not difficult to clean, you just have to really work at it (at least for me).

Try this for cleaning: use a large paper clip. Spread the paper clip out partially so that one end is straight. Now, with a couple of those little square cleaning swabs and your favorite cleaning solution (Hoppes, Klean Bore, etc.) wet the swab and use it as a "mop head" with the paper clip as the handle to reach the tight places. D not "wipe" hard enough to scratch the surface. A toothpick should also work. I would rather clean my PPK/S than my 1911 any day.

Actually my favorite cleaning solution is simple green. I clean the bbl with the toxic bore cleaning stuff. Water down the parts. spray with simple green. Scrub with a tooth brush. rinse off with water. Wipe down and run a couple of dry patches through bore. Place disassebled into over at about 150 deg until dry. Let cool, lube and reassemble.
