Walther PPK/S .22lr – Suppressed

4k UHD Resolution Video uploaded:

I shoot this pistol in my car. Yes, My car!

First Round Pop Demo:

Shooting Only:

Accuracy Video:

Walther PPK/S .22lr – Model 5030300
Factory Threaded Barrel – 10+1 Capacity
Aftermarket Walther P22 Thread Adapter
Silencerco Sparrow Suppressor
CCI Standard Velocity 40gr LRN .22lr Ammunition #0035
Average Velocity with this setup at 55 degrees F is 840 Feet Per Second

The Good:
1. Factory threaded barrel
2. Eats subsonic ammunition reliably
3. Classic Design
4. Hilariously fun to shoot suppressed
5. Very little recoil
6. Ships with tools for barrel and sights
7. Adjustable rear sight
8. Three total front sights of varying height to dial your zero

The Bad:
1. Ships with ONE magazine…
2. The finish on this blued model is terrible.
3. Double action trigger pull is ridiculously heavy.
4. FRP is significant when suppressed, more so than my other .22 platforms.
*FRP not an issue when fired “wet”.
