This pistol is my sisters. She ask me to look at it with her since she hadn't touched it in over 5 years. Well she couldn't work the slide I loaned her a reliable 38spcl, with the intent of selling the Walther and getting her a revolver. Test firing this 32acp was no fun. Very ammo sensitive, then after 30 rounds the loaded chamber indicator pin floated up and jammed a round 3/4ths of the way into the barrel. I noticed when shooting that sometimes the load indicator pin would stick out over a 1/4 inch. Any help would be welcome as this is my first experiance with a Walther. My thoughts are to just remove the dang pin if Smith/Walther will not repair it for free...of course if a primer ruptures it would then be in the shooters eye luteai
Whatever doesn't kill you postpones the inevitable.
I did clean and lube the ppk/s prior to use, and yep itwas in the undies drawer luteai
I always lue and clean my weapon before I go to the range. Its just a habit of mine since they sit in the safe for awhile. Steve48
Sent the PPK/S back to Walther today, they sent a UPS shipping label for me. Of course UPS Store will not take a handgun. Drivers are not allowed to pick 'em up according to UPS phone guy. So I got to drive to the main UPS shipping center for my area. Oh well, maybe they'll lose it and I can get another 442
I had a PPK(S) in .380
Always wanted one , well becareful what you wish for ...........
It was a piece of junk, jammamatic.
Traded it quick and never looked back.
Personally I don't want another one.
A LTTLE TRAINING IS A DANGEROUS THING ....
I keep hoping that one of these threads will turn into me getting one super cheap. I don't want the gun to carry, or even to shoot. But, I do think it would be cool to own one... I was always a Bond fan.

I've had my PPK/S (.380) for almost 25 years... always been reliable and quite accurate... still looks and shoots the same as the day I bought it... I guess you either love Walthers or you hate them... I really like all three of mine...
was one of my favorite CC guns until I picked up my P3ATs...
Echo... good luck finding one cheap... I can sell mine today for about twice what I paid for it new in 1983...

I have a newer S&W Walter in SS /.380. It has been 100% reliable with ball and HP. I sometimes carry it. The fit and finish are great! I paid $130 more for a new Kahr MK9 and it was a jam-o-matic.
Smith replaced the loaded chamber indicator spring and pin. Said the spring was broken. Free shipping and smithing, 2 weeks turn around time on a pistol that they only warranty for 1 year... Great service, fires well now with all ammo tried. Guess it's off to gunbroker luteai
Time to check gunbroker...
I guess I always wanted a PPK because of 007. Now the more I learn about them the more I think I will just save a whole bunch of money by buying a Bersa .380.
