I'm looking for a stainless PPK in .380. I'm not interested in the PPK/S or in the .32acp. Please provide pics if possible.


I am also interested in a PP in very good condition.

GunsAmerica

NEW WALTHER PPK 380 CAL.
GA# 976367527 $475.00
<b>THIS IS A NEW IN THE BOX STAINLESS DOUBLE/SINGLE ACTION .380 CALIBER.IT HAS A 3.35" BARREL WITH FIXED SIGHTS AND COMES WITH TWO FACTORY 7-ROUND MAGAZINES THE ORIGINAL BOX AND MANUAL.***</b>
Seller: THE EXCHANGE 494/0
FFL Dealer: Yes Area Code: 605 GA Sales: 494

If you want an opinion, my pre-Firestar era Bersa .380 has been totally reliable. An excellent substitute for the more expensive Walther and about 1/2 the price. Don't get me wrong, I love Walther... :wink:

Get ready for sticker shock on the 90-95% PP's. Hey, they have Goebbel's engraved Walther for sale... with documentation... +250,000.

I think I'll pass on that one. I know the PP's are expensive but they intrigue me regardless. I doubt any reasonable offers will come my way for a PP but it's worth a shot.

The PPK may become my carry gun in the summer when I have to tuck in my shirt and don't wear a jacket. It's a bit below what I would consider the minimum of firepower but better than my .32. The Bersa is a good gun but I want the Walther name.

Re: WTB Walther PPK .380acp

I sure don't blame you on the Walther... our builds don't allow for a beefy gun in summertime, eh? My Bersa is still going strong... but there are a few replacements I lust for. Walther is one! By the way... GunsAmerica has a bunch at a pretty good price. I didn't check GunBroker.

Contact my friend, Rotty, at [email protected]

He's fair, square and can get a Walther for you at a good price. Tell him Ofallon sent you. :wink:

I may contact him. Thanks for the help. BTW, somehow my gun fund replenished itself. I love how that happens. :D

Re: WTB Walther PPK .380acp

Ruger SP101 .357mag 3" with bobbed hammer. Heavy yet small. They're fun in .38 but slightly unpleasant with magnums. I want one for a winter carry gun.

Re: WTB Walther PPK .380acp

I had a PPK for a bit many years ago, it was a nice gun but someone wanted it more than me so I sold it and bought a Beretta 85 to replace it. Don't pass up a Kel-tec either if you are looking in the Bersa range. The 9mm is a pretty handy gun and I really like mine in .40 S&W. They can use various S&W mags, sometimes needing some simple mods, or I prefer factory ones as there are no problems with them. They also have a very active talk group whose site is full of info on the gun. Price is about the same as a Bersa and with the polymer frame seems a bit lighter and much more resistant to rust. Kel-tec has a lifetime warranty and is pretty customer oriented from what I hear. It also fits well in all my 1911 concealment holsters. They also have a .380 cal. but there seem to be some problems with them and even more as one goes down in caliber (this is not unique to Kel-tec and can be found in all mouse guns). You could also check out Beretta as they have some nice .380s. The .380 is not a bad defensive round, it saved my butt once, though there are other rounds I consider better. The Federal hollow points are about the best there is but the Gold Dots and others of similar ilk are pretty good too. I'd stay away from Corbon and the like in the small calibers, energy and momentum is low enough that a bullet that mushrooms well often does not penetrate deep enough to reliably reach vitals, especially if the aggressor is large bodied and/or muscular and/or wearing heavy clothing like leather vests or jackets. Best of luck in your search.

Re: WTB Walther PPK .380acp

Most gun shops around here have asked $550 to order one for me. That seems really high when I can get one online for $100 less. I have a few more options, then I'll try Paul's guy.

re: WTB Walther PPK .380acp

I won an auction today so I'm no longer looking. Got a great price too. Even after shipping and transfer I'm more than $100 under the cost for a new one. :D
