posted on June 1, 2019
Concealed-carry practitioners looking for a tried-and-true brand but who would prefer not to adopt the striker-fired systems of the modern handgunning era will find joy in the Walther Arms PK380 line. This double-action, hammer-fired .380 ACP provides ergonomics for which the legacy brand is known, along with features to enhance this pistol’s capability as an everyday carry gun. The PK380 weighs in at 18 ozs. unloaded, functions via recoil operation, includes a 3.66” barrel and Cerakote Black slide topped with Walther’s three-dot sighting system. To learn more, watch this NRA Gun of the Week hosted by American Rifleman’s Christopher Olsen.
