Walther PPK/S .22

Famous for being the first DA/SA pistol and, of course, 007's firearm of choice (arguably more so for the latter), the Walther PPK remains one of the most famous handguns in industry history. Now the popular PPK line has expanded to include one of the most affordable calibers on the market: .22 LR.

The PPK/S .22 blends the iconic PPK design with the cost-effective plinking that the .22 LR cartridge provides. Make no mistake, the PPK/S .22 is identical to its .380-cal. "big" brother—it's just less expensive to shoot.

Bought the PPK/s .22 last year and really enjoy it. I don't understand the zinc alloy to make it lighter. The .22 weigh more then the .380. The stove pipe issue hasn't occurred on the .22 but I had it happen so many times with the .380. Found out from several gunsmiths the same response....it has to be broken in. My PPK/s .380 took around 1000 rounds till it stopped. As for the mag springs...doesn't Walther have them??

I am looking to buy two Walther PPK/S .22 magazine springs. The most popular spring source doesn't have them. Where can I buy the springs?

I have a question. This new opistol is made of zinc alloy. My understanding is that the reason for this is that a steel slide would be too heavy to function as a blow-back pistol and therefore the sled cannot be steel. However, prior to 1068, Walther made a 22 Long rifle version of the PPK. Does anyone know if that pistol was made of steel, and if so, how did Walther overcome the problem of the slide being tooo heavy?

i left acomment earlier today, but only a few wrods are printed. I bought a new ppk/s 22lr two days ago. it stovepipe on the first round. out of twelve magazines, it would stovepipe at least twice each mag. It would fail to feed 5 or 6 times per mag. I used Federal high velocity ammo. in 36 years of law enforcement shooting, this is the worst pistol I have ever fired.

Just bought the .22 ppks. The fit looks good but, but it appears that on mine (and others I've seen pictures of) the trigger guard does not seem to fully close in the up position. Also, the 'Fort Smith' logo on the right side of the slide really detracts from the overall look of the pistol.

Indeed a very pleasant comeback for a legendary handgun. However, I'd rather this wonderful piece of art was made exactly the way it was originally made, without the use of aluminium anywhere, just my humble opinion. I incidently happen to be a proud owner of one of the original PPK/S pistol produced before 1986.

Re: Chris Sheffer's comment about the calibre of Bond's original PPK/S - believe the pistol was first issued to Bond by 'M' in .32 calibre

I bought the new PPK/S in 22 LR because of how much enjoyment I have had with my PPK/S in .380 by S&W. Both are wonderfully accurate AND I have experienced the failures that other mention. My blackened .22 is so hefty that it eats up the recoil. Very heavy DA but SA is wonderful and light. 400 rounds of Remington, Federal and CCIs with NO FTF, FTE, SP! Not as accurate as my ISSC M22, but much, much less finicky. A great pinker and trainer. If you enjoy history and your .380, then this will satisfy without question. Maybe I am lucky when considering the negative comments of those enthusiasts before me, and I am sorry for their negative experiences. I am VERY PLEASED, and recommend this pistol.

I had the earlier model 25 years ago 22 cal... I had to send it back 3 times for jamming, still did not work. Jammed at least once every mag of 7. with a variety of ammo. I also have the james bond .380 PPK/s it works very good.

I hear of jamming problems, but that's what you get when you mix .22LR and semi-auto. A 9mm or .45 will never jam in a good firearm. People should not be in a situation where life depends on a .22, but if it ever is a revolver is the best answer.

I hear that the frame is made of a zink alloy, and not steel. This alone would stop me from even considering it.

This a trainer and a plinker, I want one becuase I have a ppk in 380, with 22L I can go to the range and practice and improve kill with lower cost and lower stress to my old hands and wrist -- can't wait to get on -- for the same reason I got a S&W M&P 22 - aalso made by Walther

Had one for almost 20 years when Interarms was supplying the US market. Test a number of brands/types of ammo. Some work better than others and can be finicky.

This little gun is the Biggest piece of crap firearm that I have ever purchased. Jams and stovepipe issues constantly straight out of the box, even though I only used the factory recommended ammo. I returned it to the factory with-in one month of purchase, thinking that I had got a poorly assembled one,that they would set right for me. Received it back with a letter telling me that everything was to factory specs. Sold the piece of crap after another month of jams before it hurt me. Never shot one 10 round factory Walther magazine with out jams, misfires and stovepipes.

Comments...I am wondering if this new German made gun has a junk zinc or cast slide as well as its aluminum frame.

Beware of the Walther's made in the U.S. they were all junk and totally unreliable. Stick with the original French Manurhin guns made for Walther in post WWII. By the way their never was a German made Walther made after WWII despite the markings on the post WWII guns, they were all made in France and were very good guns.

Junior, I read your post, and PLEASE NO, not for concealed carry!!! This is a plinker and fun gun ONLY. Terrible choice for self defense -- bad trigger pull, mediocre reliability, and a design that is at least fifty years out of date. Better than no gun, but that is all.

Just bought mine today! Heavy heavy heavy trigger pull on double action. Can that be adjusted I'm wondering. With an empty mag, you pull back on the slide and it won't move forward with the slide release like my P22...however the takedown is a breeze and it doesn't take you forever to put back together like the P22! LoL!!!

Beautiful gun. I would very muck like to put a few rounds thru it. One item that would clean the look & allow it to be a clean pull from a carry concealed position would be the clip. It needs to be a smooth feel @ the bottom of the grip. A clean tight fit.

007's firearm of choice (arguably more so for the latter), the Walther PPK... I always believed it was a .380 not a .22cal?? I always loved my P230 sig~sauer (.380 cal w/Italian w/Hydrashocks) this was my "carry" gun...
