    Have had my Smth and Wesson PPK (blued version) for a little over a year. I have noticed brownish tinged areas in a few areas of the trigger guard. No pitting or roughness and really only visible depending on the strength and direction of light. I' m guessing that the original factory blueing...

    Im interested in picking up a vintage Walther PPK. Im torn between two calibers. I'd like to get one in a 22lr because in theory its far cheaper to shoot than a 380, but my father had a PPK in 380, so I'd like to get the same exact one he had. I know...buy both of them. I did find two online...

    This is the second guy I have seen compare the PPK to 1911's. There is one mistake I see in the review. He says you can carry the PPK "cocked and locked." Not so, if you cock the hammer it is unlocked and I do not think it is safe to carry that way. It is ready to fire single action and the...

    Have about 500+ rounds in my Smith and Wesson PPK. I clean and lube after every range visit (usually M-Pro 7 cleaner & Rem Oil). My question is about the firing pin and its spring. I have done nothing to clean that as yet. Except spray it with canned air. Should I? I am considering spraying...

    These two PPK's are really nice. The black one has never been fired other than being tested at the factory. All the paperwork including test targets came with both guns. The stainless does not have the original grips and was probably fired very little. The test target for the stainless is dated...

    Everything is on YouTube. As the owner of these two handguns, I was a bit surprised to find a YouTube that compares my two weapons. The youtuber has the Interarms version of the PPK, mine is the Smith & Wesson version. Only differences I am aware of is that the beavertail on the S&W is longer to...

    Depending on what clothes I am wearing I may consider using an ankle holster for my Ruger LC9 or Walther PPK. There are lots to choose from with wide price ranges. Do any of you with one or both of these guns ever use an ankle holster? What would be your recommendations? FYI, I have an outside...

    I have a question concerning the handling of the Smith & Wesson PPK when slide is removed. I have been told by others (Waltherforums.com) to never pull the trigger without supporting the hammer and lowering it slowly when the slide is removed from the frame. I have been told it can do damage...

    Brought my new Walther PPK to the range yesterday. Which I just bought because my new Ruger LC9 is back at Ruger due to its busted firing pin, which I reported about in another thread: http://www.longislan...lure-ruger-lc9/ Photo below I found online is with the magazine with the pinky rest...

    If I swing a favorable tax return I plan on snatching one of these bad boys up as well as our potential next group buy. Gunbroker prices seem a bit inflated from the last time I did research (which was admittedly 1-2 years ago), so I figure I would ask around. Looking for one, stainless...

    Hi all, I recently experienced a slamfire with my pre-WWII Walther PPK. It discharged 7 rounds in fully-automatic mode...luckily no one was hurt and property damage was minimal (and is already repaired). I would like to have the firearm professionally disassembled, checked out and repaired...
