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.
