Walther PK380 Pistol

FORT SMITH, AR --( During an internal quality review, Carl Walther GmbH has identified a condition that may exist in certain PK380 pistols which may permit a round to be discharged if the trigger is pulled, despite engagement of the manual safety.

Walther has found that engagement of the manual safety may not prevent firing of a chambered round when the trigger is pulled.

This recall applies to Walther PK380, .380 ACP pistols manufactured by Carl Walther GmbH from May through September 2012, which have a serial number range from PK101201 to PK112155.


Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential to cause injury, and we ask that you stop using your pistol until we have an opportunity to inspect it to make certain that there is no condition which will allow the pistol to discharge with the safety engaged.

To facilitate the inspection and repair, if necessary, of your pistol, please contact Waltheramerica’s customer service department at 1-800-713-0356 to receive instructions and a call tag for the return of your pistol to Waltheramerica.

Additional information will be posted on If you have any questions about this recall, please contact Waltheramerica at 1-800-713-0356.

      I just purchased a used PK380 from my local gun shop and saw some recall stuff online. It looks like my cereal number is WB026923. It’s labeled Walther Arm Fort Smith,AR.It has a red laser. Does this pistol need to be recalled it doesn’t have the “Z” stamped on the slide. Did I make a bad purchase? What do I need to do to make everything OK? I didn’t get an extra mag, can you guys send me one? I really like the pistol , it’s beautiful and seems well-made and in good like new condition.Timothy Liptow,204 Laurel Ln. Burkburnett,TX 76354. Thanks for your help.
