I had installed Herretts cocobolo grips on my PPK/S-1. They are a steal from CDNN. Sanded the checkering down until they are smooth with a nice pattern.

Came back from the range where I found out I was having trouble maintaining the magazine with the finger extension locked into the gun.

Turns out the bottom edge of the Herretts grips is straight. The bottom edge of the PPK/S-1 is not. There is a step between the edge of the magazine well and the mainspring housing. You need to have the grips follow this step or you will not reliably lock the finger magazines in the firearm. It took a moment with a Dremel belt sander to fix the grips and now it works fine.

This pic shows the cutout that Battlecry describes. The grips for the older ppk/s and the ppk/s-1 are not identical.

New PPK person here, thanks for your patience :eek:

What's the difference between a PPK/S and PPK/S-1? My 1995 Interarms PPK/S seems to have the same cutout as the image posted by MLB. Guess that means it's a PPK/S-1 since that's what battlecry says his look like (?) But the factory Walther grips on it seem to have a straight bottom, yet they don't interfere with the magazine finger extension. Are the Herrett grips longer than the factory and is that why they interfere? Was thinking or ordering those from CDNN so trying to make sense out of this post, again as a newbie with limited knowledge.

Makes no sense to me either That is top of gun not bottom If yours a Interarms Just make sure grips are for a PPK/S non S&W and don't worry about it. I have both ivory and bufflo horn for mine and never had a problem.
