Walther/S&W PPk Safety Recall

From the Tactical Wire

Smith & Wesson has identified a condition that may exist in certain PPK and PPK/S pistols which may permit a round to be discharged without the trigger being pulled. When the manual safety is disengaged, Smith & Wesson’s Product Engineering Group has determined that the possibility exists in certain firearms that lowering the hammer may cause a chambered round to fire.

This recall applies to all Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols manufactured by Smith & Wesson from March 21, 2002, until February 3, 2009. The Serial Numbers of the pistol subject to this recall are as follows:

BAB 0010-BAB 9999
BAC 0000-BAC 9999
BAD 0000-BAD 9999
LTD 0000-LTD 0499

  1. /humor
    I’d say this is one of those evil self-firing guns that the Brady Bunch is always talking about, but I forgot that those magical guns are also self-loading.

  2. At least you had to DROP the Ruger SR-9. And that was a new design. Hasn’t the Walther PPK been around for sometime now?

    I wonder if S&W will get as much heat and criticism as Ruger has taken?
