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/S 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 Fine condition. It comes with a Bacon belt holster and a factory box with a cleaning rod. It should be noted, however, that no magazine is included. This would make for a good carry gun or addition to a Walther collection missing an Interarms PPK/S. Please see our photos and good luck!
