In 2017 TFB visited the exhibition “James Bond in Motion” at the London Film Museum.
Do you want a little ‘James Bond’ in your life and your firearms collection? Well, Carl Walther from Germany now has a series of four ‘new’ Walther PPKs for you.
They are all chambered in 9mm short, or .380 ACP, which is perhaps the more commonly named.
The magazine capacity is 6 rounds for the PPK and 7 rounds for the PPK/S.
In Walther’s words:
REVIVAL OF A LEGEND – THE WALTHER PPK / PPK S
The Walther PPK is a true prime example of branch-leading innovation. At the time of its creation, more than 80 years ago, it created the foundation for a new category of handguns. Pistols for concealed carrying. The current PPK combines a timeless concept with state-of-the-art features.
We have for instance the Walther PPK Stainless, 9mm short:
Walther’s industry-leading innovation takes the spotlight with their PPK model handguns. At the time of its invention over 80 years ago, the PPK inspired an entirely new category in the firearm industry, now widely known as the concealed carry pistol.
It is chambered in .380 ACP, the PPK provides all the power needed in a self-defense pistol without sacrificing on critical functionalities. It features a single-action/double-action trigger that decocks when rotating the safety down into the safe
position, first introduced by Walther.
To this day, the PPK is still one of the most sought after concealed carry pistols on the market. This demand serves as a testament to Walther’s long-enduring legacy of excellence and unparalleled performance. The timeless design and superior engineering make the PPK a true legend amongst firearms.
And the Walther PPK/S, 9mm short:
An evolution of the classic PPK, the PPK/S maintains the timeless features, essence and the elegance of the original with an additional extended grip allowing for added capacity and improved ergonomics. To execute this revolutionary concept, the Police Pistol Kriminal took all the modern advancements available at the time and combined them into one performance leading pistol.
It features a single-action/double-action trigger that decocks when rotating the safety down into the safe position, first introduced by Walther. Few guns have withstood the test of time like the brilliantly designed PPK.
