The PK380 was the first semi-automatic polymer pistol developed with an easy to rack the slide. Its single-action/double-action trigger and internal slide stop are inspired by the legendary PPK, making the PK380 a real force to be reckoned. Chambered in .380 ACP, it provides noticeably soft and manageable recoil, allowing for the best shooting experience possible. The PK380 is fully ambidextrous with both a paddle-style magazine release and slide safety. The easy to handle size and overall dimensions of this pistol make it an ideal option for concealed carry. As with all of Walther’s high-quality handguns, it comes with a lifetime warranty for your peace of mind. The PK380 is sure to impress, no matter the situation.

Walther PK380 Capacity

The Walther PK380 utilizes steel single-stack detachable magazines.  Magazines for this pistol are only available in 8-round capacities.

Walther PK380 Ergonomics

The Walther PK380 has many of the standard controls that are expected out of a modern defensive handgun.  Its slide-mounted safety is easily reached with the user’s thumb, and its magazine release is ambidextrous and is the tilt-down style.  Its grip has contours that are very conducive to a strong and proper grip.

Walther PK380 Fit & Finish

The Walther PK380 has metal and polymer components that are incredibly well made, however it suffers in ways that are hard to avoid.  The trigger when pulled in double-action is rather stiff, unlike the venerable PPK, and its recoil spring guide rod is polymer and may be a cause of concern for some users.
Fit and Finish

Walther PK380 Concealability

The Walther PK380 is an incredibly easy gun to conceal thanks to its short length, small grip, and thin cross-section.  This gun is rendered unnoticeable in most choices of attire with a proper holster.  The contours of the gun prevent the weapon from printing though clothing, however the exposed hammer may cause some discomfort to some carriers in certain stances.
