I had shot my PPK several times when I found out about the recall. (Even though I was registered with S&W they didn't contact me about the recall, I found out about it in a forum.)
Then I learned that whatever the original problem was, those PPK owners who sent the gun back with the recall paperwork got back their gun with virtually the same issue, or worse, than originally. Soooo... I didn't send mine in for the recall. I still have it and no issues thus far, six or seven years on. The fixed bbl makes it as accurate as my Makarov, and that is very very accurate, particularly for such a small auto.
I know who I am. I'm the dude playing the dude disguised as another dude.
