Walther Arms has reintroduced the classic PPK and PPK/S pistols chambered in .32 ACP.

More than 80 years ago, the Police Pistol Kriminal (PPK) was a game changer upon its arrival, as a more practical and reliable concealment option to officers with undercover assignments. Today, crafted with that same Walther precision and attention to detail, while incorporating modernized performance, the PPK/S in .32 ACP brings functionality and a nostalgic style.

Walther PPK/S
Few guns have withstood the test of time like Walther’s PPK.


Chambered in .32 ACP, the PPK/S includes a longer grip, fixed front and rear sights, a double- or single-action trigger and hammer drop decocking safety. A beaver tail extension improves stability. Additionally, the top strap is cut with a wave to reduce glare, while rear slide serrations provide a non-slip grip. The classic checkered panel grip and magazine with finger rest complete the package.

More from Walther Arms: “Revamping a timeless classic, this vintage-inspired pistol pays homage to the iconic Walther PPK lineage. It features a double-action/single-action trigger that decocks when rotating the safety down into the safe position, first introduced by Walther. Whether you’re a collector or a defense focused shooter, experience the thrill of owning a piece of firearm history with the PPK/S in .32 ACP.”

Barrel length is 3.3 inches and the ovreall length is 6.1 inches. Height is 3.8 inches and the PPK/S is one-inch wide. Empty weight is 19 ounces.

Four Walther Arms PPK and PPK/S models are available chambered in .32 ACP, including six- and seven-round versions in black and stainless steel. The PPK/S “Sport” version has a longer grip.

MSRP: $969. Visit waltherarms.com to learn more.
