New to site and to my PP .32/.380 and need to know the secret to remove the threaded .32 barrel so I can convert to the .380 when needed. I have soaked and soaked with penetrating oil to no avail. Thought about trying to heat frame with heat gun and then trying to unscrew the barrel. ? is will the heat gun ruin the bluing? Any ideas will be welcomed. Thanks, Mike :confused:

Can you post some pictures of your weapon? As far as I know this isn't a conversion to be undertaken lightly, if it is possible at all.

here are a few pics, thanks. After seeing the pics I begin to ? if the barrels are interchangeable. Maybe you can fill in the blanks (no pun intended) what does that .380 barrel go to? thanks , Mike

The barrel fitment of the Walther PP is semi-permanent and not designed or intended to be readily swapped out to change calibers whenever you get the urge.

Stop molesting it before you wreck it.

MGMike many be more direct than I am but he is certainly correct.

You may want to look at buying a 380 weapon rather than trying to convert your 32.

Frankly the 32 is much more enjoyable to shoot and is the platform the weapon was designed for.
