Here is what Walther said about their flagship concealed carry innovation when they introduced it at the 2008 SHOT Show: Walther PPS is short recoil operated, locked breech pistol that uses modified Browning type locking with tilting barrel. Frame of the gun is made from impact resistant polymer. Trigger is of double action only type, striker fired, with pre-cocked striker system, similar to QA system used in Walther P99 pistols. This system requires a manual recocking by partial slide retraction in the case of misfire. Gun is fitted with automated trigger safety and firing pin block; additional storage type safety is provided by removable backstrap of the grip; once backstrap is removed, the firing pin is automatically decocked and gun is blocked until the backstrap is reinstalled. This patented system is called QuickSafe by Walther. Sights are low profile, with rear sight adjustable for windage. While we compliment whoever wrote that, and whoever translated it into English, what is attractive about this pistol is the short emphasis it received in the American Rifleman, something our dial caliper tells us: .895 frame and slide thickness. No one else can touch it for thinness. It's no slouch for other dimensions, either. Maximum overall length is 6 1/4 inches; and height measurement from the top of the slide to the magazine floorplate is only 4 1/8 inches. Caliber is .40 Smith & Wesson. Capacity is 6 + 1, the pistol comes just the way we got it, with one six-round magazine; double action only; black synthetic grip frame and black matte steel slide and parts; weight is only 19.4 ounces empty. Barrel is 3.2 inches long. Product code is WAP10002; note, however, that the original box has been overlabeled to W6P100002, Smith & Wesson Demo Status, probably a sales rep’s sample or showpiece at a trade show. It is in its original box with its instruction manual and its fired brass envelope dated from 2008. This specimen, then, is a First year production piece. It has German proof marks on the slide and barrel. Surface detractions are negligible. We rate it as Mint or Near Mint in Box, but photos ought to suffice for our shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. This pistol will definitely be one of the last Walthers with Smith & Wesson markings. Replacement price on this thinnest .40 of all in our area is upwards of $800.00, if a person can even find one. We're offering this one, however, for only $ 519.00.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
