    Default Walther PPK safety recall

    I got the body of this information in a recent law enforcement email. I haven't checked it out, but it appears legit. I'll look for a link as well.

    Smith & Wesson has issued a Safety Recall on the Walther PPK/S Pistols.
    Smith & Wesson has identified a condition that may exist in certain PPK and
    PPK/S pistols which may permit a round to be discharged without the trigger
    being pulled. When the manual safety is disengaged, Smith & Wesson's Product
    Engineering Group has determined that the possibility exists in certain
    firearms that lowering the hammer may cause a chambered round to fire. This
    recall applies to all Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols manufactured by Smith &
    Wesson from March 21, 2002, until February 3, 2009.
    If you have one of these pistols; STOP USING YOUR PISTOL AND RETURN IT TO
    SMITH & WESSON AT ONCE.
    Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential for causing injury,
    and we ask that you stop using your pistol immediately. To facilitate the
    repair of your pistol, please contact Smith & Wesson's customer service
    department to receive instructions for the return of your pistol to Smith &
    Wesson.
    When you return your pistol to Smith & Wesson, they will replace the
    existing hammer block feature with a new part at no cost to you. Your
    firearm will be returned as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Saw it in the latest NRA magazine. Checked my Serial #, and it is in the range. I suppose I'll be sending it in.

    Even though they listed serial numbers, it appears its all of the PPK's they manufactured.

    Leave it to the new S&W to screw up a 80+ year old design.
