Walther PPK/S .380acp Stainless, 7 round
by Marc S Date Added: Friday 16 January, 2009
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!
