Fun little Pistol! As to date, I have loaded and shot cut down 9 MM case, 38 Super Comp and 9 Mak cases sized in 9 mm dies with .355 bullets, In addition to factory 9 Ultra ammo. As long as the cases are trimmed to around 17.98/95mm they gun functions just fine.

Mine have all run 100%, and I have owned something like 14 of them over the years. An under appreciated Walther, for sure.

"Mine have all run 100%, and I have owned something like 14 of them over the years. An under appreciated Walther, for sure." 14, no wonder You can hardly find them now a days! Lots more fun to shoot than my Walther PPK! Using 9 mm cases shortened to 17.98-95, who cares if you cant find them all! Only takes a second on the trimmer to make more! What's neat, is Walther has parts still in stock for them! Don't be afraid to buy one of these Walther PP Supers thinking you wont be able to find ammo!

What is the recoil like when shooting one of these? It would seem they would kick much harder than the already stout recoiling .380 series. 1917

The greater mass and more full grip yield less felt recoil in 9x18 than the .380 PP or PPK, IMO. The .380 Supers are about like shooting a .32 PP - nothing to it but pure pleasure. Only the Benelli B82 in 9x18 is a softer shooter in this caliber. The SIG P230 and Mauser Hsc, on the other hand, have noticeably harsher recoil than the Walther PP Super. (Ask me how I know all of this ;))
