    Walther PK380 recall

    For those of you with a PK380, check your serial number. The gun may still fire with the manual safety engaged. Walther is paying in full for the repairs, including shipping to and from.

    This recall applies to Walther PK380, .380 ACP pistols manufactured by Carl Walther GmbH from May, 2012 to September, 2012, and which have a Serial Number ranging from
    PK 101201 to PK 112155

    If your gun has a Z stamped under the back end of the slide it has already been repaired.

    Glad to see them getting any problems worked out. The PK380 seems to be a nice gun, I may get one eventually. How good is the trigger and can it be upgraded?

    Honestly? It's awful. I think the gun has great ergonomics. The trigger is horrible. I tried to do a minor trigger job on it and it was a huge pain. The hammer spring is a rotational axis spring instead of a compression spring so it's almost impossible to lighten without buying new parts, and I haven't found any out there yet.

    Agreed. I mean I got mine as a gift so with no money invested it's a great gun. But I'd be pretty pissed if I had've actually paid for it. It doesn't come close to comparing to my PPS as far as quality goes. Just a very sloppy made gun. However, the Mrs loves it since it feels so good in the hand and doesn't kick much. It is pretty fun gun to shoot. Because of the light slide, they're also more prone to jamming if you like to limp-wrist your guns.
