Timelessness inspires true greatness. A groundbreaking idea now gives rise to the next level of achievement in unrivaled performance, delivering tried-and-true results when you need them most. An evolution of the classic PPK, the PPK/s maintains the timeless features, essence and the elegance of the original with an additional extended grip allowing for added capacity and improved ergonomics. Walther’s industry-leading innovation takes the spotlight with their PPK model handguns. At the time of its invention over 80 years ago, the PPK inspired an entirely new category in the firearm industry, now widely known as the concealed carry pistol. To fill the need for performance in a concealable package, Walther broke the mold of pocket pistols and full-size military pistols to bring undercover officers a more-practical and reliable option, the PPK. It is chambered in.380 ACP, the PPK provides all the power needed in a self-defense pistol without sacrificing on critical functionalities. To execute this revolutionary concept, the Police Pistol Kriminal took all the modern advancements available at the time and combined them into one performance leading pistol. It features a double-action/single-action trigger that decocks when rotating the safety down into the safe position, first introduced by Walther. Few guns have withstood the test of time like the brilliantly designed PPK. To this day, the PPK is still one of the most sought after concealed carry pistols on the market. This demand serves as a testament to Walther’s long-enduring legacy of excellence and unparalleled performance. The timeless design and superior engineering make the PPK a true legend amongst firearms.

Walther PPK/S Features

The PPK/S is an export version of the venerable Walther PPK used by German special police.  Some extra weight was added to the gun to allow it to be imported into the United States after the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) added a weight requirement for imported pistols.  It has a 3.9 inch barrel and operates on a direct-blowback action.

Walther PPK/S Capacity

The Walther PPK/S is available in .22LR, .32 Auto, and .380 ACP and feeds from single-stack magazines.  In .22LR, the magazines hold 10 rounds.  The magazines hold 8 rounds when chambered for .32 Auto, and in .380 ACP the magazines hold 7 rounds.  The PPK/S is not built to handle any +P loads, though it has no trouble cycling hollow point ammo.

Walther PPK/S Ergonomics

The PPK/S is a small gun by every metric, though it does provide a full-handed grip for most users thanks to its extended floor plate on the magazine.  The magazine release is located on the right side of the frame behind and above the trigger, and the slide-mounted safety is easily reached by the user’s thumb.  

Walther PPK/S Fit & Finish

As is the case with the majority of German firearms, the Walther PPK/S is over-engineered with every surface honed to increase reliability, accuracy, durability and looks.  The trigger pull in any Walther PP pistol is incredibly smooth in double-action (if maintained) and the single-action trigger pull is light and crisp.

Fit and Finish

Walther PPK/S Concealability

Measuring 6.6 inches long, 4.2 inches tall and 1.25 inches wide, the PPK/S is easily concealed in almost any attire and in almost any position.  The only downside to concealing the Bersa is the grip tang and exposed hammer which can potentially cause discomfort when appendix carrying.
