This time it's the Interarms licensed USA version before Smith and Wesson took over. Ranger Arms manufactured them. It's a 1989 and I do believe the serials started in 1983 once production was set up.

They are good pistols without the ugly serial pit of the Smith and Wesson.

I have an old Interarms PPK/S. It’s beautiful. It’s an awful shooter. I will never get rid of it. I love your gun and would have bought it too. When S&W added that horrendous beaver tail it was all over for me. I would rather get bit by the slide than be seen with that awful beaver tail. Lol

Very nice, a PPK is on my shortlist of 'just because' pistols.

It looks like a swimming pool cut into the frame with an ugly laser burned number and QR code.

Think you nailed it. I got the box down and it has a label "WALTHER PPK 380 ACP STAINLESS 088". Seems like I carried it longer than that, The Rodney King riots were in 1992. After I saw that guy get dragged from his truck and smacked in the head with a cinder block I bought a Beretta 92FS.

I lost one like that in a burglary. I still miss that gun, I loved it. Back then the HP technology wasn't there in terms of nose geometry and ballistics compatibility with that particular model, but if I still had that gun I'm pretty sure I'd find some reliable defense ammo to shoot in it. When I was young I used to empty magazines of ball ammo reloads into mud ground right in front of me. Lots of useless testosterone got used up, probably for the better back then.

Glaser Pow R Ball is the way to go with these.

I bought a Colt Trooper in 357mag with a 6" barrel. Carried her in my work vehicle for years.

OP, nice PPK! Is that 380 or 32?

I ended up making an impulse buy for a blue finish PPK/S in 380. A PPK in 32 would have been more of interest, but the novelty of the serial number beginning with “007” pushed me over the cliff.

Given the right opportunity for a nice shooter in 32, I would take the leap again whether it be a PPK or PPK/S…

What’s not to like about a “cool” all steel pistol?
