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. This example is a PPK from Walther manufactured in West Germany. This is a blued example chambered for .380 ACP in Excellent condition, showing little to no sign of use. It comes with two magazines and a serial matching case. This would make for a good carry gun or addition to a Walther collection missing an Interarms PPK. Please see our photos and good luck!
