windowman2 Welcome to the Walther Forum..
The Grips that Hogue Sells will not follow the contour of the frames on the S&W manufactured PPK/Ss..
But They will fit with a bit of trimming & sanding..
If Your Lookin for a good grip on the PPK/S I may have the answer, They don't look as good as custom checkered Wood but they are available & are quite rare nowdays as Farrar is out of Buisiness.. Farrar Rubber Grip For Sale $20 Shipped
I will have to say that I realy love the Wood Hogue on my Walther, But as they come they don't fit that well, Also note that I recontoured the frame to match the grips, This was alot of work.. Hogue Grips on S&W PPK/S Frame Re-Contour
If your after a better grip I don't think you can go wrong with the set of Farrar's that I have in my storage bin..
They don't use grip screws, You slightly oil the frame first & stretch them on slowly once over the frame cutouts they magicaly pop into place..They are a bit of a pain to install & remove but they are top quality & are much nicer than the Pachmayr's IMO..
Let me know if your interested..
Follow the links I've provided & decide..
Also Note:That Hogue Doesn't make Rubber Grips for the Walthers, Only Wood.. & That my Silver/Black Wood Grips were Custom Made & sold on thier Auction Site, They Haven't had another set as of late, I've been watchin..

windowwman2 If you have a PPK The Farrar won't fit..
I read that after posting..
They will fit the PP & PPK/S..
If you want wood for the PPK, I would contact Hogue First to make sure they'll fit, I don't think they will..
On The PP & PPK/S they use standard grip panels & on the PPK the grip is actually the backstrap.
I'd Call the supplier just to verify that they'll fit the newer S&W manufactured frames with the extended beavertail..
And I love the Ebony Grips, Ebony is used on High End Gibson Les Paul Customs as the fretboard wood, Very Smooth & Fast!! Gotta love that!!
Here's My Fancy Laminate Silver Black Hogue Checkered Grips same pic as my Avatar
MLB Those are the sweetest looking PPK/S Grips I've ever seen..
How long did it take you to make em?
I'd guess way too many hours.
I love the finger scollops & the way they match up with the frame in the front & back..& the Tiger Striped Wood SWEET!!
I must have missed the "DermaGrip" post
windowman2 the Farrar are still available if your interested, They feel good & realy give a good grip but aren't too tacky as to snag on clothes etc.
Let Me Know!!

Thanks B92. I'm not really sure how long it took. I'm not a professional woodworker so I work slowly. Just a bandsaw, a dremmel, and a bunch of hours. It was fun working on them, but I'd never be able to make them fast enough to be profitable.
I was going to get the Hogues, but they stopped short of the backstrap, and cost a bunch. I figured that for $5 in wood, $5 for a set of grip screws and bushings, I could screw it up and be not too far behind.
BTW, the dermagrip thread was in the P99 area. I had them confused.
They look great on the SS frame...
wonder if they make them for the German PP's and how they would look on the blued PP..... making it almost all black
I keep getting more and more grips for the PP and still don't have it.... got 3 pairs no and no PP
