I just received my Walther PPK/S today and it's a beautiful gun. I haven't had a chance to shoot the gun yet, but when I do I'll post an update. I opted for the 7 round because I liked the extra ss and slightly less plastic on the grip. I'll have to wait and see how it performs before I decide if it'll be a primary defense weapon, but in any case I'll be buying a CZ P-01 or a Glock 26 in addition. Bud's customer service is IMPECCABLE. The staff are really friendly and courteous. That's so rare these days.

I bought this pistol a couple of weeks ago, after a PAINSTAKING search for the "perfect" conceal weapon. I had rented one several weeks before at the local range and it felt great, a really quality built firearm, and it shot accurately and reliably. Mine arrived and I went right to the range with it. After rtfm I found out that firing before a thorough cleaning and lubrication is NOT recommended. Ooops. Nevertheless, it functioned very well but the springs were EXTREMELY stiff (main and mag) out of the box, and the first round out of each mag FTF about 50% of the time. Other than the first-round phenomenon I had two other FTFs out of 150 rounds and I was generally pleased. I brought it home, cleaned it and lubed it and proceeded to exercise the action (while watching a 007 flick for mood) and it loosened up considerably and feels ten times smoother now. From everything I've read, this is a pistol that requires a courtship. I REALLY really like this pistol so far but I've yet to bring it back to the range. Judging by the way it feels and consistently feeds snap-caps, I'm reasonably sure I'm going to remain happy with it. For reference my other pistols are a Sig 229 in 40 and and a Sig 225 in 9, two super-refined pistols and a high standard to live up to. Buds of course was top-notch as always! Thanks Guys!

I've had my PPK/S for almost two years; it's my primary concealed-carry. Once a "slide-locks-open" problem was fixed at the factory, it's been flawless ever since. I probably lost a tiny spring the first time I opened it. I like carrying one in the chamber, loaded. With the internal firing pin block, the long DA trigger pull, and the manual safety, I have no issues about it's safety. At the range, I practice drawing, flipping up the safety, and deliberately firing that first round DA. The KEY is to know your weapon, and practice accordingly. It is beautiful, and a legendary gun. Perhaps a lighter Ruger LCP might do the job, but I guess I'm a traditionalist! .380 gives me the compromise I need between a mouse gun, and concealability. I wear an IWB, with the grip under my shirt, for total concealment. I work in an office, I'm not an LEO.

Beautiful to look at but the double action trigger pull is horrenous and simply it is uncomfortable to hold, firing or not. The newest Bersa Thunder Plus 380 with 15 round capacity is much more pleasing and HALF the price. I own both, the Walther will be a nice conversation piece. GOOD LUCK finding the Bersa 15 round 380! To be totally honest, the Walther is a heavier built pistol and may last longer than the Bersa, but I do not figure I will be shooting over a 1000 rounds anyway.

This is a great little pistol! The build quality is excellent, field stripping is easy and it is fun to shoot. There is also a lot of history involved and I like that.
