The 24 ounce fully loaded weight of the PPK/S 22LR makes
it a very handy carry companion.
I recently completed a review of the Walther PPK/S 22LR pistol. Since it's a rimfire handgun, the review is up on The Rimfire Channel blog. You can follow this link to the review. I've also included the review video below.
As I worked on the review, my thoughts went to the many YouTube comments, emails, and Facebook messages I have received seeking my recommendations on handguns for those with arthritic hands and wrists. I found the PPK/S 22LR to have little recoil, even less muzzle flip, and a very soft recoil spring that made manipulating the slide very easy. Reliability and accuracy were on par with the best small 380 and 9mm handguns I have previously reviewed. If you find recoil painful and intolerable with small centerfire cartridges, the PPK/S 22LR may be a pistol for you to consider.
