Our Assessment: Here is the marriage of two prolific gun makers in S&W and Walther. This PPK'S was manufactured in the United States under license of Walther; making a long loved semi auto pistol now available again. Taken straight from the S&W web site: "Often imitated but never duplicated. The elegant lines of the legendary WALTHER PPK have caught the imagination of the entire world for over 75 years. Developed in 1931, the WALTHER PPK continues to thrill the shooting public, and the legend lives on. The PPK/S with a longer frame for one additional cartridge is now produced in the USA under license by Smith & Wesson." We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
