Default No problems with mine

I purchased a smith/walther ppks.32 acp a few years ago, I had always wanted a"Bond gun" but have always preferred stainless. I also have meaty hands so the little beaver tail on it was a big plus for me. I found out about the recall and mine was made after the recall. I have had no issues with the pistol. I have fired cheaper range ammo, Winchester silver tips, and others. Never any problems, I really enjoy shooting this pistol. It is not my first choice in a carry firearm but has it's niche and has been reliable. My wife likes it as well. All in all I have been pleased with it and plan on keeping mine.

Hey Matt,

My opinion is that this is a bit exaggerated by the ease of communication we all have with the internet. If a manufacturer of any product produces 50,000 widgets and even 500 have an issue...

My wife has a S&W PPK. She loves it. She has smaller hands and it works really well for her, plus she likes the manageable recoil from the .380 round.

More of a concern to me than bad reviews online at times is that the slide could easily 'bite' the hand of a man or woman who has big hands. In fact, I have never shot her gun because I am convinced that my large hands would get cut if not being 100% diligent to ensuring that I must maintain a low grip on it for every shot. Again, everyone is different. My wife loves her PPK.
