James Bond aside, a .380 PPK wouldn't be my first choice for a suppressed handgun. If you must do it go for an internal thread.

I don't think he's from around here, or there is a severe generational gap going on.
I suspect the latter. Be that as it may, back to his question. I have always wondered, is it as simple as having a PP barrel installed on a PPK and then having a competent machinist cut it to the proper length and thread it to spec?

I believe Mr. Bond use the superior 7.65mm versus the .380ACP. :cool: 7.65mm would be quite nice, suppressed. :)

Having recently done an R&R on a PPK barrel, I can attest that removing the barrel from the frame of a PP series pistol isn't a task that requires a great deal of effort.

In the case of a PPK, a PP barrel replacement will get you the necessary amount of barrel protruding from the slide to thread for a supressor.

Without any prejudice towards the OP, I do groan and hang my head whenever I read about someone wanting to silence a PPK ala James Bond.
