Any advice, opinions, experience, etc. would be greatly appreciated!
Try to buy a used one in very good to excellent condition.
I paid $495.00 for a used PPK/s.
I shot 50 rounds of .380 through it.
I not only didn't like it - I hated the fact that I had close to $500 tied up in a gun I knew I'd never shoot.
I sold it for $495.00.
PPK - PPK/s is like that though...
Either love it or hate it - there's not much in between.
& yes - the PPk, PPK/s had also been a "grail" gun for me since I saw my fisr James Bond movie 45 or so years ago..
