The .32 ACP Walther PPK And PPK/s Are Back

Walther has just reintroduced the famous PPK and PPK/s in .32 ACP.

There are many reasons why the Walther PPK has remained so popular since it was introduced in 1931. It has a rich history of use, is a pop culture icon and it remains a practical concealed carry pistol over 90 years later. It may not be the best by today’s standards, but it’s absolutely still viable. For years, if someone wanted a PPK in .32 ACP, they were forced to pay a premium for a vintage example. Thankfully that’s no longer the case, as Walther has just announced the release of new-production .32 ACP PPK and PPK/s models.

Walther says that the new .32 ACP PPK and PPK/s are “vintage-inspired” pistols that “pay homage” to the originals. That’s because these handguns aren’t exact clones and feature some modernizations to improve performance. Information on exactly what all those changes entail is not yet available. That said, most of the handguns’ features are otherwise what you’d expect. Both models are DA/SA straight blowback pistols chambered for .32 ACP and feature a decocker safety and fixed sights. Both are also available with either a stainless steel or a black finish. The differences between the two are that the PPK has a shorter grip and a 7-round capacity while the PPK/s has a longer grip and an 8-round capacity.

Jens Krogh, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development for Walther, said this about the new guns:

Few guns have withstood the test of time like the PPK … To this day, it’s still one of the most sought after concealed carry pistols on the market, which serves as a true testament to Walther’s long-enduring legacy. We have no doubt bringing back the historic PPK/S in .32 ACP will make our consumers, plus overall fans of the world’s most renowned secret agent, extremely excited too.

The .32 ACP PPK and PPK/s share an MSRP of $969 for either finish option.

  1. When I was i high school 1955-1957) it seemed like guns came to me. I had so many different ones. One was a long barrel 45/70 trap door Springfield. I was riding my bike through the neighborhood when I saw this guy’s garage door open and above his bench hung this big rifle. I asked him if he would sell it. He said he would for $5.00. I didn’t have that much so I asked him if he would take $3.00. He did and I took the gun and cleaned it up, linseed oiled the stock. The ammo was expensive for my budget at .50 cents a round. I shot a fence post about 6 inches thick. It went through it and bounced across the hay field. Wish I still had it. I am 85 now and it was so simple to get a gun back then.

  2. I know this will seem like a weird thing to say but I am glad they are making a comeback. Most all of the old ones have Jewish blood on them. I can remember them being sold for $20-30 dollars shortly after the war was over like in 1947-8. I was eleven my brother 12. There was a army surplus store in Philadelphia on Frankford Ave. that my brother and I would buy there. They had Springfield rifles in .45/70 stacked like cordwood along with WW2 German Mausers and same with 11 mm Mausers ones stacked at least five feet high. Prices were five to twenty for most all of them. We bought some 11mm Mausers that had something broke on most of two dollars ones. The Springfield Trapdoors were in descent shape with some of the doors loose. Carbines were in the the best shape. We bought one in carbine that was a good shooter but we couldn’t bring it home as we were told no guns in the house. Miss those days when one could buy a gun with no age limit. Go shoot it and have fun. I’m am 87 now.
