Sometimes everything old is made new again, and that's why Walther is revamping is classic PPK/S in .32 ACP--this may not be a "new gun" per se, but it's definitely new for 2024. Over 80 years ago, Walther's Police Pistol Kriminal (PPK) broke the mold when it brought a more practical and reliable concealment option to officers with undercover assignments. Over time, as more concealed-carry-ready firearms hit the market, the PPK took something of a back burner for Walther ... but not for American Walther fans, who yearned for its return.

Today, it's back, and it's crafted with that same Walther precision and attention to detail. Don't be fooled by the nostalgic style; the revamped PPK/S incorporates modernized performance, bringing functionality and reliability.

“Few guns have withstood the test of time like the PPK,” said Jens Krogh, vice president of marketing and product development for Walther Arms, Inc. “To this day, it’s still one of the most sought after concealed carry pistols on the market, which serves as a true testament to Walther’s long-enduring legacy. We have no doubt bringing back the historic PPK/S in .32 ACP will make our consumers, plus overall fans of the world’s most renowned secret agent, extremely excited too.”
