Walther Begins Shipping PPK Stainless Pistols!

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Timelessness inspires true greatness. A groundbreaking idea now gives rise to the next level of achievement in unrivaled performance, delivering tried-and-true results when you need them most.

Now shipping, the Walther PPK stainless is the next step in the new Fort Smith, Arkansas production PPK family.

Walther’s industry-leading innovation takes the spotlight with their PPK model handguns. At the time of its invention over 80 years ago, the PPK inspired an entirely new category in the firearm industry, now widely known as the concealed carry pistol. To fill the need for performance in a concealable package, Walther broke the mold of pocket pistols and full-size military pistols to bring undercover officers a more-practical and practical option, the PPK. It is chambered in.380 ACP, the PPK provides all the power needed in a self-defense pistol without sacrificing critical functionalities.

Few guns have withstood the test of time like the brilliantly designed PPK. To this day, the PPK is still one of the most sought after concealed carry pistols on the market. This demand serves as a testament to Walther’s long-enduring legacy of excellence and unparalleled performance. The timeless design and superior engineering make the PPK a true legend amongst firearms.

“We are very excited about the release of the PPK. This series is truly an icon in the history of concealed carry pistols. Every employee at Walther is proud to be a part of the reintroduction of this legendary series, and we take pride in maintaining the attention-to-detail from the original manufacturing over 80 years ago.” Said Bret Vorhees, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Walther Arms, Inc.

    There is a place for nostalgia; but, it is not a place in my stable of firearms.

    I owned and carried a stainless steel Interarms Walther PPK as a PI for quite a few years. I eventually sold it. It was ‘romantic’, it was prestigious, but it was a PITA. I have normal size hands, but the slide cut the knuckle of my shooting hand thumb every time I practiced/qualified. I carried it anyway because of its easy concealment in a pants pocket (living in FL, wearing anything beyond a polo shirt is also a PITA most of the time). It was reliable and accurate, but it was reliably painful to actually shoot. Sad, really. Who wouldn’t… Read more »

    I am happy to say, the day I turned 21, lo, these fifty-plus years ago, I paid $119.95 plus tax for the original PPK — still made in Germany — and I still have it. And I don’t find it at all difficult to clean; it has one of the neatest and easiest disassembly procedures I’ve ever seen.

    Interesting! I always kind of wanted a PPK. I am a little uneasy that they are being made in Arkansas, though. Not much good seems to come out of that state when you think about it. The Clintons, Mike Huckabee, Wal-Mart…

    I hope Walther breaks that disturbing pattern.

    @Grig, What is uninteresting is your having to insult the whole state of Arkansas. Back up to “I always wanted a PPK.” and recompute.

    @Grogori, I have no contacts with the state of Arkansas. I just think that your comment was millennially rude, for no reason.

    It would be nice to have a ball park on the price, so consumers don’t get gouged to much at the dealers. Massed produced you wouldn’t think they would get to crazy, but I have seen some of the originals with price tags more than a top of the line 1911, or Glock. But for grins, I will be watching them.

    Update, A company by the name of Talo has the exclusive on special run of these stamped with a motto of some sort, and the price for them is Ready for it, $679.00. Now that is just the limited edition, but as far as the standard issue, I would assume around $500.00 or less, but im sure there will be the greedy dealers that will take advantage of the just got to have it now crowd. One model is a 7+1 capacity, and the other is 6+1, don’t know what that’s about. Out of the sites I have been on,… Read more »

    Good! The PPK is one of those guns that has a cult following, and just as many detractors.
    Bottom line is, if you’re of the right mindset for this sort of iconic pistol, you just gotta have one. Good for Wather to get some more of them out there.

    @Gerry, I don’t like the front sight being part of the slide, and they are a pain in the ass to clean, but really accurate, reliable and can be operated while in your coat pocket.

    @Gerry, I never thought of myself as part of a cult, but I really like the Walther PPK, so … I guess … I’m good with that!
