I would like to get new grips for my ppk (S&W one), but I see people selling grips saying ppk/ppks. Do they take the same grips? or, is there a difference in size?

TIA

PP and PPK/S grips are the same and will not work on the PPK
PPK grips are wrap around style grips where the PP grips are two "flat" pannels

The PP and the PPK have two entirely different frames.

The PP uses two flat panels on either side of the grip area and has steel for a backstrap.

The PPK uses a wrap around grip where the grip IS the backstrap.

The PPK/S model was created specially for the US market to get around the Gun Control Act of 1968 which limited the importation of guns considered to be "too small." The PPK/S model was a PP frame with a PPK slide/barrel.

You need PPK grips. And PPK grips only. No "S"....
