My wife loves her PPK and has no problems with it cutting her hand. I can shoot it without cutting my hand but I have to double check the placement of the gun in my hand before I shoot just to make sure. My dad has been shooting a PPK for about 15 years and has permanent marks on his hand from the numerous cuts he has accumulated. It really depends on hand size.

I had a PPK/s for while and didn't have a problem. It was a great fit for my hand. Too bad the ammo is so expensive.

I've been shooting my PPK/s for 20+ years and never received an "owie" on my hand. I suppose if you allow it to ride high in the hand it could be a skin scraper, but so is the Glock.

Never had a problem with my PPK/s biting me...but then again, my hands are large, but not beefy in the web area around the thumb.

Here's my 1972 West German .380acp Walther

True...

True...the PPK is smaller than the PPK/s

The PPK/S differs from the PPK as follows:
  • Overall height: 104 mm (4.1 in)
  • Weight: the PPK/S weighs 51 g (1.8 oz) more than the PPK
  • The PPK/S magazine holds one additional round, in both calibers.
The version currently manufactured by Smith & Wesson has been modified by incorporating a longer grip tang, better protecting the shooter from slide bite, i.e. the rearward-traveling slide's pinching the web between the index finger and thumb of the firing hand, which was a problem with the original PPK design.
