    Well, I have puttered with SmithWalthers for some time now...bought one, would not chamber, back to Smith, no issue found, would not chamber, replaced with Smith revolver, later bought another PPK/S, and a pin fell out suring the first firing session, returned, finally got a third...

    Took this latest PPK out for a stress test, and started putting PMC fmj through it. Everything ran fine until around the 75 round mark when I had one fail to feed, not a major issue since the round was in the chamber but not fully seated. A tap on the slide seated the round.

    I put about another 10 rounds thru it withot further issue.

    So, researches continue....

    I hope it was just one of those breaking in issues. Just got a S&W made PPK in .32. Haven't fired it yet but I'm hoping for the best.

    Yeah...maybe...I have maybe 150 rounds thru it now, and I fought with a Kahr 380 for six hundred before THAT piece settled in.

    Would like ro get a .32 PPK..I hear those are wonderful.
