Walther PPK : 007
The Walther PPK has been around for over 80 years and has been used by police, militaries and civilians, but made legendary by James Bond. It’s an all steel frame .380 ACP that’s accurate and reliable. #WaltherPPK #JamesBond007 #gunreview

I brought a PPK/S back from Germany in 1977. It is not "Interarms" stamped. It is, however, stamped with the oval with a BYP inside an oval next to the serial number. That is the property mark of the Bayerischer Landes Polizie/ Bavarian State Police. There is no other in existence.
This has been my daily carry for over over 3 decades! It’s my favorite! The hammer gate/stop is one of the best safeties for accidental drop on market!
The "Kriminal" Criminal stands for "Kriminal Polizei" "Crime Investigation" This is police in civil. So quite the same what you would call detective. (Its over 90 years in production)
It’s "shaken, not stirred"
I have one – don’t like it at all. Grip is too small hard to hold. I’m looking into a S&W SD 40.
You are really cool guys in the US. Love to watch all the shootings within your society, even those in schools.
Absolutely miserable to shoot for anything more than a couple mags, but the cool factor and Art Deco design are timeless. I have had the same Intetarms stainless model for close to 30 years – not a fan of the newer design changes ruins the symmetry for me but I’m glad they are still in production.
I’ve been into firearms my whole life, and always wanted a PPK/S. I’m a USPSA 3-gunner, and have owned some pretty high-end custom guns, and I really enjoy the shooting sports, but I also carry daily for self-defense. I’m 57, and just never got around to getting this iconic gun in my collection, until recently.
I finally got one recently, and it is a great little pistol. Like all small .380 Autos, it’s not necessarily "fun" to shoot like a tricked-out 9mm or .45acp competition gun, but it is a GREAT carry gun for "deep carry" when I’m dressed up and can’t carry a large-caliber self-defense piece (like my Glock 36). It has a super crisp trigger, an incredibly smooth action, and the all-steel construction makes it reliable and durable, and helps with recoil. It’s a great little gun, and one of my favorite pieces.
They actually upgraded Bond´s service pistol during the Pierce Brosnan-era to a 9mm Walther P99 and even Daniel Craig carried one in his first movie, but then they brought the PPK back for the following movies.
safety on mine never worked; so much for german engineering
Hitler shot himsalf with his pee pee
Lookin’ pretty dapper there Sootch,,,,💥💥💥👍😎
You’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”
"Well actually I can see that you’ve fired your last shot".
Bond went from the .25 Beretta to the .32 PPK. They changed that at some point down the line after years to 380. So the real 007 PPK is in.32
No wonder JB used it….
Хочу точно такой пистолет сколько стоит то напишите оно боевая или ьравматическая ждв
Today’s bond would be carrying a Sig Sauer P365
Love my PPK/S though it sliced my wifes hand and thus I carry my "Pee shooter" now.
I think it’s shaken, not stirred. Why? Shaken ensures a better mix.
I bought a new one a year ago for 650 😂
Thanks Brandon for the new pricing!
I used to own one and that thing slide bit me every time.
05:37 – The word "Kriminalpolizei" is german for "criminal police". The criminal police’s task is detection and repression of crimes. The name of the pistol "Polizei Pistole Kriminal" means that it was designed for police officers with the Kriminalpolizei a.k.a. criminal police (see above). American dudes, learn German!
I’ve owned 2 PPK/S. Love the gun, but both had the same issue…stovepipe a round and the mag drops out of the gun. swap mags, no difference. What’s with that?
"Taking a gun out to dinner " Wow that must be a blast !!
2 years ago, I picked up a nice, surplus 1970 German 7.65 police PP in the original box for $600. Biggest problem with these Walthers is they’re now too valuable to carry. I’d love a German PPK in 7.65. But postwar examples are super expensive, and the sky’s the limit for wartime ones!
5:39 The "Kriminal" in PPK (Polizeipistole Kriminal) was named by its designated purpose to be handed out for the Kriminalpolizei which is the investigating part of the German police force (like detectives).
I’ve had a real deal for 35 years, it was imported in 1967. A true PPK is only a .32ACP. I love it.
Sally student PPK a piece of garbage you can buy an HK P30SK V1 LEM 9mm for nearly the same price.
Cool , Very Cool 😎 This is all Sean Connery ( The G.O.A.T of all James Bonds) ever needed. ☝️
Actually, it’s “SHAKEN, not stirred,” as opposed to “STIRRED, not shaken.” James would never forgive you.
Great review! Btw it’s vodka martini, shaken not stirred (not "stirred, not shaken"). 🙂
Gun makers all they got to progress, They make well metals and techniques, We can buy inexpensive and reliable now My good friend.
Why on earth would you take a firearm "to a barbecue" or "out to dinner with your wife"? I’m a Brit and I’ve met people who really have worked for "Universal Exports" and I can assure you that they don’t take a pistol to a pizza restaurant. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
police pistol kriminal referred to the criminal detective branch of the police department… more compact for carry when infiltrating the criminal underground as a UC.
We used the Walther PPK 7,65mm in the Swedish police force until the mid 80s’s when it was replaced with the Sig P226 (and P225, P228, P229 and P239). This year we’ll start replacing the Sig with the Glock 45 (and some 17, 19, 43 and 43x).
James bond 007 gun
Cut that background music. The clean sound of firing is itself very satisfying.
The PPKS was introduced with the short beavertail & made by Interarms in VA although actual manf work was done in Alabama.
It wasn’t until S&W took it over that they redesigned the longer beavertail.
Then Walther set ip their own US facility.
Definitely a nice pistol, but a little too small for my hands, and I have small (for an adult male) hands. 🙂
Elvis was a king
I had one back in the 90’s, beautiful pistol.
Ppk next to a desert eagle
I have a wife who loves me. She bought me the stainless steel PPK 3 years ago for my birthday b/c we’re both gun collectors & huge Bond fans. For some reason, our collection is missing the P99 that Brosnan used. Can’t seem to find those anymore.
OMLY GOOD FOR MEN WITH SMALL EFFEMINATE HANDS OR WOMEN, DONT FORGET THE WALTHER BITE, WHEN THE SLIDE CUTS THROUGH THE WEBBING BETWEEN YOUR THUMB AND INDEX FINGER, STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUN WHICH WAS DESIGNED OVER 100 YEARS AGO FOR SMALL BRITISH MEN,
I saw James Bond take down a helicopter at 50 yards with one of those things.
"A BBQ gun, maybe something you take out for dinner, with your wife.".
For Europeans, that sounds more than just weird….
Beautiful gun though. There is one (most likely a PPK) somewhere in my family’s backyard, hidden in the ground since spring 1945. I tried to find it as a teenager…
To my knowledge it wasn’t an official gun of German Army officers but many got one on the side. It’s also the Polizeipistole Kriminal, not "Kurz" (short), although it would make sense.
