PPK/S finger rest

I have a Walther PPK/S that came with two magazines, one with a finger rest and one without. I would like to purchase just a finger rest for the magazine without. Do such things exist? If so, where do I get one?

Well

I checked Numrich, they don't list it. Brownell's either. Maybe try Mec Gar, Pro mag or one of the aftermarket manufacturers. Or maybe S&W will sell you one.

I believe you will have to buy a magazine with one already on it. I haven't seen them sold by themselves. Midway sells a ton of floorplates, but none for the PPK.

the blue is from the adhesive i used. it let go when i dropped the mag.

I bought some cheap aftermarket mags with the finger rest, Triple K, I believe, and stripped off the finger rest, kept the spring and follower for spares, and chucked the mag body.
I had already determined that these mags did not feed right in my PPK/S.

Available But Expensive

You can find them but the problem is they are almost as much as a magazine. I have two black ones from my collection I don't need any more. You can have them for what I paid, $20.00 each plus postage.

It's been awhile; but, if memory serves me correctly I got mine directly from Walther. Most of my PPK-S magazines do NOT have a finger rest, though. What for? They pattern too easily and don't add that much purchase to the pistol.

I followed Alloy’s advice and called Smith and Wesson at 1-800-372-6454 and ordered two product code 198800000 FR EXT PPK .380& .32 REPLACES. at $4.20 a piece. They were in stock and arrived in less than a week.

I hope this helps with others who are looking for this item and thanks to all who replied to my question.
