How to Break Down a Walther PPK to Clean It

Rotate the safety decocking lever on the left side of the slide into the down (6 o' clock) position. The red safety dot should not be visible.

Point the firearm in a safe direction and remove the magazine by pressing the magazine release button just behind the trigger on the left side of the gun.

Verify that the chamber and magazine well are clear of ammunition.

Hold the pistol firmly in one hand, bracing the trigger guard with the index finger. With the other hand pull down the front of the spring-loaded trigger guard, pressing it sideways with the index finger to prevent it from springing back into the frame.

Pull the slide all the way back until it unlocks from the slide rails and the rear of the slide can be lifted off the end of the frame. Ease the slide all the way forward and off the front end of the gun. Maintain a firm grip on the slide while it moves forward to prevent spring tension from ejecting the slide and causing damage or injury.

Remove the recoil spring by pulling it off the front end of the barrel. After cleaning, reassemble the PPK by reversing the field-strip procedure.

An extremely generous fellow surprised me with a Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol yesterday, just turned up in the mail. I emailed him and he replied that the slide kept popping off while firing and that he wasn’t able to get it back together. So he sent it to me as he knew I’d get it working and enjoy it. Sometimes airguns are like that, they drive you nuts until you just can’t stand the sight of a particular problem gun (I know I have several I’d like to run over with a steam roller).

As received.

The slide was detached. Googling around for information I came upon an excellent Youtube video detailing the disassembly and reassembly. Although I’m not a big fan of using a drill bit as a pin punch, but you do what you can with what you have.

Spring in place.

Unlike the pistol in the video, a previous owner had replaced the trigger guard with a laser sight made for the pistol. The pin that retains the stock trigger guard is not used. The trigger guard is pivoted down.

And twisted slightly to stop it against the frame.

Then the slide is slid on.

And down. It needed a bit of wiggling.

Part of the problem is that instead of using a pin to retain the trigger guard, thus locking the slide in place, the laser sight used two socket set screws. So I tightened those down. I think I’ll make small dimples in the frame to more securely lock them.

Looks cool…makes me want a “real” PPK.

DSCN6226

Not a big fan of the bulky CO2 screw knob. But it does provide good leverage.

Four magazines loaded with steel bbs.

Inserting the magazine.

The gun felt stiff, and the plastic shroud around the barrel seemed tight. Several times when first shooting it the slide locked up, requiring manual recocking. I greased it up and it worked better but I’ll probably smooth it a bit.

DSCN6232

The slot the CO2 cartridge fits in is pretty tight which makes replacing cartridges a pain. I think I’ll trim a little off the sides. You can see that it pinches the cartridge enough that it stands up…

DSCN6234

It was getting late but I ran it a bit to test. The blue group is with steel bbs at about 10 feet. The red circles are a 5 shot group using lead bbs (not .177 lead round ball, will try that later) used in the Haenels.

The pistol isn’t particularly accurate and the laser needs to be zeroed to the point of impact (it was shooting low), as well I think it needs some gentle tuning. I’ll work on that later this week. It is a fun pistol, and while the “blowback” action serves absolutely no purpose, it looks and feels realistic.

How to Disassemble a Walther PPK .380

Learn how to disassemble a Walther PPK .380 from Police Officer Keith Charley in this Howcast gun video.

Transcript

Today we're going to talk about how to disassemble the Walter PPK 380 caliber pistol.

The first thing you want to do before disassembling a gun is to make sure the gun is safe and empty.

Start by removing the magazine. Pulling the slide back and checking to make sure there's no round in the chamber. And rack it back and forth a few times, grab the trigger slide. Now you know the gun is safe and empty.

What you have to do to disassemble this gun is you have to pull back the slide and now the trigger guard is going to pull out. You pull it out with your hand and then you can let the slide forward. Draw it back and pull up on the back. Once you do that you can release the trigger guard and the slide comes right off the gun.

From there, the only other part of the gun you have to worry about is the spring that comes with the barrel. The barrel of this gun is part of the gun so it doesn't have to be removed.

And that is how to disassemble the Walter PPK 380.
