Tuesday I rescued a '97 Walter PPK/S from a local pawn shop. I got the old girl home, stripped her down and saw she still had the factory lube in her. Cleaned her up yesterday and carried her out today. All I can say is WOW! Now I know some folks don't like a 380, but this thing is dead on just like my PP. 7 shot 3 1/2" patterns at 25' on my 1st run with her. Can't decide if i like my old PP or this shinny PPK/S better. Guess i'll swap them out as my CCW.Here she is

Nice gun. It's a dead ringer for my 383 DA except for the trigger guard.. You just have to keep in mind to pick up a box of .380 when you think of it. Sometimes it's kinda hard to find here and there's not much selection. It's my carry gun with a belt slide holster.

Thanks Verkalak. I have had a Model PP for the last 30 years and was looking for a Bersa as another CCW because of the price difference for the new S&W Walthers, when I found this little jewel. Couldn't believe that I found an Interarms Walther for $300 ! And of course my beautiful bride has laid claim to it now. Oh well. :doublegun2:

Thank you Waltham. I thought so too. The sad part is that they had 2 of them just alike the day before I walked in there. Dangit ! if i'd been a day sooner. :cry:

Excellent deal; Walther pistols are nicely made ... S&W Walthers usually aren't as nice.

At least it's still in the same home; I hope you are allowed to shoot her guns when you please!

Well, she has kept me for 20 years so I feel pretty safe about it. Besides, it was either the PPK/S or my older PP, and that WASN'T gonna happen :no2:

amp, i've heard and read a lot of bad reports about the S&W Walthers, which is why I was so excited when I saw that this was an I/A version. And yes, i do get to shoot her guns too. :minigun:
