Smith and Wesson Walther PPK and PPK/S Recall


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.

I got notice of the recall yesterday, not from S&W, but from UPS as S&W had approved a return label. Further investigation reveals that when the PPK-PPK/S is modified, that S&W plans to notch or dot the top of the ducktail. I think I will pass on having my pistol engraved.
