James Bond may have made the Walther PPK a household name, but the credit for its enduring popularity is due entirely to the company. Part of the formula is innovation, and true to form, Walther just released a new member of their PPK family, a stainless version in .380 ACP. It’s shipping now and should be available at dealers shortly.
It might be tough to believe, but the PPK has been around for over 80 years. At the time of its invention it inspired an entirely new category in the firearm industry, now widely known as the concealed carry pistol. Previously, if one wanted a very small and concealable handgun, one was generally left with a choice between tiny calibers or derringers that delivered a wrist-bruising punch.
Few guns have withstood the test of time like the brilliantly designed PPK. 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.
“We are very excited about the release of the PPK. This series is truly an icon in the history of concealed carry pistols. Every employee at Walther is proud to be a part of the reintroduction of this legendary series, and we take pride in maintaining the attention-to-detail from the original manufacturing over 80 years ago.” Said Bret Vorhees, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Walther Arms, Inc.
