Walther is bringing back a classic pistol option not seen in many years. While most American shooters think of the PPK as a .380 ACP, that was not the original chambering. The .32 ACP PPK was the first model, and Walther is making it again. 

Walther @ TFB:

In case you are not familiar with the .32 ACP cartridge, let’s compare it to the .380 ACP. The bullet diameter is obviously smaller, measuring 0.3125″ instead of 0.355″ inches. Bullet weights are also lower, ranging from 60 to 73 grains in most loadings. In contrast, the .380 generally uses bullet weighing between 90 and 100 grains. .32 Auto tends to also run at lower velocities, but combined with the lighter bullets that means the recoil will be reduced (assuming all else is equal).

The PPK has the same barrel length and overall length as the PPK/s. However, the PPK is 0.5” shorter than the PPK/s. The magazine capacity of the .32 ACP PPK is 7 rounds, while the PPK/s holds 8 rounds. Both the .32 ACP PPK and PPK/s are available now. The retail price for both the black and stainless models is $969.

From the manufacturer:

Walther Arms, Inc. proudly reintroduces the PPK and PPK/S chambered in .32 ACP. Revamping a timeless classic, this vintage-inspired pistol pays homage to the iconic Walther PPK lineage, featuring a seamless union of sophistication and lethality.

Over 80 years ago, the Police Pistol Kriminal (PPK) broke the mold when it brought 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.
