Walther has announced the release of the PPK/S First Edition. Limited to 1240 units (serial numbers 101-1350), the First Edition will be a one-time-only run. Manufactured to commemorate the return of the PPK family, and the beginning of Walther's U.S.-based manufacturing, the PPK/S First Edition featured stainless steel slide finish paire with cocobolo wood grips, and chambered in .380 ACP. Under the ejection port on the right side, the slide is marked "First Edition."

While the PPK/S maintains the features and essence of the original, it does come with an additional extended grip for improved purchase and added capacity. For more information on this pistol, which retails for $799, please visit waltherarms.com.
