Attached are a couple photos of my Tornado Technologies custom threaded St. Etienne (Manurhin) licensed Walther PPK/S .22 LR w/ Silencerco Sparrow. In addition to my CZ 75 Kadet, this is the second pistol Tornado Technologies has threaded for me. Turn-around time was ~5 weeks and the work is top tier. This little Walther runs extremely well with standard velocity CCI 40 grain lead solids and is very quiet. A quick shot of Ballistol helps reduce first round pop.

That is awesome, they did a coupe of threading jobs for me, including a Beretta 87BB barrel. Unfortunately they were doing a move or having some such issue and it took all of a year to get completed, but even then it was worth the wait (this was back in 2011-ish). Very glad to hear they are still around and that their turnaround time has gotten manageable.
This is an old picture, need to get some new ones of it.

Now you just need a tuxedo and a shaken martini.
It is that for sure. I had a PPK/s on my list of candidates for a .22 host pistol. It didn't make the final cut because I don't care for DA/SA guns, but yeah it is a sexy thing. I may yet add one in the future.
