  • Good ergonomics for its size
  • James Bond cool factor
  • Expensive

Editor’s Note:

“The PPK/s is an iconic pistol that has grown in popularity since its introduction in 1929. The Bond novels and films have certainly helped that, but all the positive publicity in the world wouldn’t matter if the gun itself wasn’t a well-built shooter.” – Mike Hardesty

Product Description

The Walther PPK/s is a slight evolution of its predecessor, the timeless Walther PPK. While commonplace today, the gun’s double-action/single-action trigger and the safety/decocker combination were groundbreaking features at the time of its introduction. The PPK/s retains the slim design of the PPK and extends the grip to help improve ergonomics and increase the capacity to 7 rounds. Billed as one of the original concealed carry pistols, both the PPK and PPK/s have withstood the test of time and remained popular choices for those looking for an easy-to-carry gun.

By The Numbers - Walther PPK/S

A fixed barrel and decent single-action trigger help, but a small gun and lackluster sights limit the capability.
Our test PPK ran flawlessly at the range.
There is much to add here aside from grips and some trigger springs.
The gun feels slim and good in the hand, especially given its age.

Sig Sauer P238


The Sig P238 is a 1911 inspired .380 ACP micro-compact handgun that’s lightweight and gorgeous. It’s key feature is it’s micro-compact size which makes this gun a great CCW choice. The P238 resembles a 1911, especially the Springfield 1911 in that it’s classic in design. “It’s a soft shooting .380 ACP with a nice aesthetic and reliable nature — the perfect companion when it comes to situations that require ultra-concealment.” – Jacki Billings, Editor

Ruger LCP II w/ Laser


“The Ruger LCP II is a fantastic option for people looking for an easily concealed .380 ACP pistol. It is surprisingly accurate, considering its size, and plenty reliable for self-defense. One thing we’d like to see is better customization options. All in all, we really like this gun.”

final verdict

“If you are looking for either a .380 to carry or a time-tested gun built along more classical lines, the PPK/s will serve you well. From its start in 1929 to today, there have been (and still are) many shooters who rely on it as an everyday concealed-carry gun. It’s been tried in times of war and has passed with flying colors. You don’t have to be a British Secret Agent to appreciate this great piece of engineering!” – Mike Hardesty
