Our Assessment: The Walther PPK/S is a well designed handgun, this particular variant takes .380 ACP ammunition. The PPK/S was introduced to the US market in 1968 in response to new import requirements imposed at that time. The handgun has remained a popular choice for carry ever since. This particular PPK/S was produced under contract by Interarms in Virginia for Walther. Goodluck on your bid!
