Funny story about the acquisition of my PPK/s. I was on my weekly visit to my local LGS’s to just look around and check out inventory. There was the Walther, shining, in the used gun cabinet. I try, not always successfully, to avoid impulsive gun purchases. However, after sleeping on it, including a dream, I went back the next day and bought it.I have been looking for just that. The problems are the scammers, the fake descriptions, and in some cases, the price. I don’t mind paying for a collector grade piece if the gun actually fits the description.
Well you're just wrong. ROFL!!!My stainless S&W PPK and PPK/S 380s have both been flawless and are the best feeling guns in the hand that I own. Best looking ones to, IMHO.
Damn.I've a look-alike - the Polish P-64

Mine snapped a link before I shot 20 rounds.
I've not fired it since.
My grips are 80 years old and in great shape.You can see a very slight swell outwards on the top of the right side, but that's it.I'd be afraid that those plastic grips would decompose at some point.
Oh well, the Germans were wizards at organic chemistry.
Maybe they're made of something rugged. (Thermosetting plastic?)
Still, if I owned something like that,
I'd be on the lookout for cheesy 3D printed replacements.
I've used them in Basic Pistol courses in the section, "Why do Americans own guns."Ah yes. TEC-9. The most inaccurate gun ever designed by man. "Let's make a pistol that fires from an open bolt. That'll bump up the accuracy!" LOL
I almost had my hands on one from here right before Newtown. I wanna say the guy wanted $500 or something. I didn't bite. Stupid me. It's a dumb gun, but it's so 1980's iconic. I'd just own it to own it. ROFL!!!
Instead I have an Uzi and I'm slowly working on building a Sten. Folding stock Uzi's are very uncomfortable to fire for such a puny cartridge.
