The Walther PPK, the first semi-automatic pistol with a successful DA/SA trigger system, but arguably more famous for being the handgun of choice of Ian Fleming's fictional James Bond character, now also includes a .22 LR model, introduced in 2013. This pistol, available for sale in the United States, is manufactured at Walther’s plant in Arnsberg, Germany and is offered in either a black or silver-nickel finish. The dimensions and controls of the rimfire PPK/S are the same as those of the .380 ACP center-fire version but the materials used and some of the internal features have been modified to accommodate the smaller rimfire cartridge. 

To learn more and see the gun fired downrange, watch this "Rifleman Review" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
