The Walther PPK/S-1 got some undeserved bad press over a factory recall that took place in 2005. Smith & Wesson corrected the problem, and they are by no means the only ones to have a recall. Photo shows one of Smith & Wesson’s showgirl Walther PPK/S-1 pistols that made its rounds at a couple of trade shows; and we cannot tell any difference in quality between it and its Interarms ancestors. Here is what the factory says about the PPK/S-1: Developed in 1931, the Walther PPK continues to thrill the shooting public and the legend lives on. The PPK-S, with a longer frame for one additional cartridge, and the PPK are now both produced in the USA. Features of the PPK and PPK-S include a firing pin safety, manual safety with decocking function, double action and single action trigger and extended beaver tail grip frame strut. Type is traditional double- and single-action semi-auto, long smooth double action pull on the first shot from a resting hammer position, and then, on our photo specimen, a crisp 5 3/4 pound single action trigger pull with minimal felt creep on subsequent shots until the shooter chooses to end the firing session by engaging the main safety which decocks the pistol. Grips are classic glossy checkered black synthetic with Walther banner; construction is entirely stainless steel; sights are red dot front and contrast red bar fixed rear; capacity is 7+1 rounds both with the stainless body factory Mec-Gar finger rest magazine and with the flat-plate extra magazine. Weight empty is a light 22.4 ounces. This fine pistol is every bit as good, or even better, than any of the Interarms Walthers, since it will digest sharp nosed hollow point ammunition like the Federal Hydra-Shok. This particular specimen was never out of Smith & Wesson Corporate Custody until we got it. It is in its original box with its lock, instruction manual, extra magazine, and warranty registration card. Fired brass envelope dates from late 2011. We classify it as Mint in Box Unfired, or Near Mint in Box. We do not see any surface detractions on it, but photos ought to suffice for our shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is certainly excellent mechanically, and is as much under warranty as any of its brand new mates. It is a testament, as well, to the mechanical expertise of the Smith & Wesson factory workers in Houlton, Maine, who also brought us the 422/622 series of pistols. Replacement price on this pistol in our area is upwards of $700.00, if a person can even find one. We're offering the PPK/S-1 in the photos, however, for only $ 499.00. 2% Discount if payment is by USPS Money Order & Not Credit Card.
