Our Assessment: The Walther PP series has long been a popular option for civilian, law enforcement, and even military pistols. The PP was just small enough to be convenient, but large enough for a service pistol. The PPK makes for a great concealed carry pistol. Following the Gun Control Act of 1968, the PPK/S was introduced to meet the United States’ import requirements, neatly splitting the difference between the two. Importer Interarms would license production of the PPK from Walther to make PPK pistols here in the United States so that there would be no issues with importing the pistols. This is a stainless example chambered for .380 ACP in Excellent condition, showing little to no sign of use. It comes with its original (though damaged) box, manual, test-target and two magazines making it just as suitable for a Walther collection as it is for concealed carry. Please see our photos and good luck!
