    Default Walther PPKs

    I've noticed Great Northern Guns seems to stock a few Walthers.

    I suspect the market for the PPks has really fallen off with the flood of lightweight .380s out there. Most do not appreciate the quality of the PPK or are willing to pay for one of the finest pocket pistols ever made.

    ...That and the fact that they cut grooves in the web space between the thumb and index finger when fired......

    I got a sig 232 instead. It much easier on your hands.

    Default PX has the PPK/S

    Saw one there today, $780 and they are an excellent fit for my hand. If you have really big hands then you might get "bitten" by the slide. I really like them.

    I had a PPK/s back in the early 80's. It started to go full-auto after about 8 boxes through it. Man that l'il monster was fun; pull the trigger and it sounded like one shot. Must have been running maybe 2-3k per minute. Sent it back to factory (shoulda registered it), and it came back so smooootthhh it was like warm butter. Shoulda never sold it.

    Second the quality.
