Put a box of 50 rounds through the new PPK/S today. The gun worked flawlessly. Not a single issue to report. Managed a 2" or so group at 15 yards. It was surprisingly accurate for such a small gun. It definitely shoots better than I do.

I did get one small small slide bite, it was my mistake however. I allowed my grip to slip too high and it grazed the left side of my hand. Like I said, this was my fault. If I had payed closer attention to my grip it wouldn't have happened.

I was also a little surprised by the recoil. I didn't expect that much kick from such a (relatively) small round. It's not unbearable by any means but I'm definetly going to have to smooth this frame. The metal edges on the back of the frame really started to make my hand raw after I finished the box. I think the new grips will make a big difference, they should keep my thumbs where they need to be and should give me a little more to hold onto.

I really like this gun. I wouldn't hesitate to carry this every day if I had my license. :cool:

Congrats and thanks for sharing the range report...yes they do "bark". After over twenty years of ownership, I know what to expect and don't bring it to the range. photo

Find those sharp edges and "break" them with 320 grit emery paper wrapped around a pencil or a pen. That along with some slightly thicker grips should do it for you.

Hold that baby tight and fire away!

Thanks 153, I was wondering what grit to use. The new grips should be here by Friday. I hope to have the frame sanded by then. :cool:

Remember to work on the edges only with the emerypaper, wrap the paper around a pencil and stroke across the sharp edge at about a 45 degree angle. Get some masking tale and tape off any area you don't want to accidently scratch up, stainless scratches pretty easy. Take it real slow and remember you can always take more metal off - putting it back is a challenge.

Have fun!
