The Walther PPK, a small, self-loading pistol made famous by James Bond, is powerful and simple to use for self defense. As you read this post, you’ll discover it is lightweight, powerful and perfect whether you have small hands or large.
The new face of Walther is far more than just a legacy of James Bond’s Walther PPK but a company offering real innovation. The company has leapt into cutting edge designs, which some gun buyers get right away like the fabulous little PPS M1 and M2.

The M2 does the Classic one better by using all the great features of the Classic and combining it with features found on the Walther PPQ series such as the ergonomic grip shape and grippy texture.
