Walther PPK .380 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This attractive handgun was a huge disappointment to us whenit failed to fire every time DA. We’ve sent it back to S&W and willreport on the repair as soon as we get it back. It was a handypistol, and would have been our pick of these three. The fit andfinish were excellent, and it was pleasant to shoot.

One of the most-welcome features of the S&W-made PPK is the extended tang (arrows), which kept our hands from being pinched by the hammer or bitten by the slide. That’s an Interarms PPK/S on the left, with the old, short tang.
Takedown was very easy. The innards looked good, too, we thought. The hammer spring seemed to be too light, which would cause the failures to fire when the gun was shot double action. Two magazines came with it.
