    S&W Issues Recall for Walther PPK/PPKs Models
    S&W Issues Recall for Walther PPK/PPKs Models
    This is dated today 2/20/09


    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. The Serial Numbers of the pistol subject to this recall are as follows:

    BAB 0010-BAB 9999
    BAC 0000-BAC 9999
    BAD 0000-BAD 9999
    LTD 0000-LTD 0499
    PPK 0001-PPK 1500
    BAE 0000-BAE 9999
    BAF 0000-BAF 9999
    WLE 0001-WLE 0459
    BAH 0000-BAH 9999
    BAJ 0000-BAJ 9999
    BAK 0000-BAK 9999
    REP 0026-REP 0219
    BAL 0000-BAL 5313
    BAM 0000-BAM 1320

            Back in early '80's had a PPK/s that began to go full-auto. Would occasionally double fire for a couple boxes. I couldn't tell by sound or feel, only the number of trigger pulls to the magazine it would fire so fast. Then it began firing half the magazine and then one pull and RIP the whole mag was gone. It fired so fast it sounded like one loud BANG.
            Wrote Interarms and they couldn't get the pistol back fast enough. Once it was returned to me it was the smoothest, slickest PPK/s you ever did see. Prolly virtually hand-made. I shoulda registered the thing and kept it.

              Good thing the feds didn't catch you with that nitroman. I'm sorry sir that weapon is an automatic pistol and you are now a felon. Give us all your guns and go to jail do not pass go do not collect $200.

                I won!!! I won!!!

                First time I've ever won anything...a beautiful prepaid shipping stamp to Smith & Wesson. Thanks again wildak, I doubt that I would have noticed the recall because I don't visit S&W's website.

                  Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

                    "BACK IN THE EARLY '80'S" I said. I was living in Anchorage at the time.
