Walther announced the new Walther PPK and PPK/s pistols will be shipping to dealers following the SHOT Show. The slides are made in Germany while the frame and other parts are made in the United States. Assembly is also done in the US. Both the PPK and PPK/s will be available in black and stainless finishes. If you’ve wanted a new PPK, it seems like now might be the time to jump in and grab one.

Volquartsen announced a new gun for 2019 called the Black Mamba. This .22 LR pistol is built on the Ruger Mark IV 22/45 frame and has a wealth of quality components and work baked into it.

To start with, the company adds its LLV Competition upper to the gun to provide excellent accuracy in a relatively light package. It has a stainless steel barrel that is available in two lengths: 4.5″ or 6″. It also has a single port compensator screwed onto the end of the barrel.

Volquartsen uses its own Competition Bolt and Accurizing Kit to ensure smooth operation and trigger pulls. Rounding out the package is the Tandemkross hiveGrip. The guns can be had in black, olive drag or flat dark earth. Made in the USA, the pistols have a base MSRP of $1,400.

For 2019, CMMG changed many of the naming conventions the company uses to identify its products. The new system seems to do a better job of telling you what kind of gun you are looking at based on the name. For example, this gun is the Banshee 300. It tells me that it is a pistol or SBR (that’s the Banshee) with all the bells and whistles (the 300 part.)

What’s interesting about this gun is not the name, but the cartridge for which it is chambered: the 5.7x28mm. The 5.7 is the same pistol and PDW cartridge developed by FN Herstal for its P90 and Five seveN. There are relatively few guns being made for the cartridge, so the guns from CMMG will be a welcomed by many 5.7 fans.

This specific gun is configured as a pistol with a Micro CQB RipBrace that has a 5-position receiver extension. The barrel is 5″ long with a thread protector only on the end. A short 4″ rail has M-LOK attachment points for a light or other accessory. It comes with a 20-round ProMag magazine and will accept any FN Five seveN magazine.

CMMG set the MSRP on this gun at $1,559.95 with the Cerakote finish. Personally, I’d love to see this with a slightly longer barrel in the 8-10″ range. I suspect we would see improved ammo performance with that barrel length.

Del-Ton announced its new Lima M-LOK pistol at the show. The new AR-style handgun is chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 7.5″ barrel, A2 flash hider, forged 7075-T6 upper and lower, 6.5″ handguard with M-LOK attachment points and a pistol receiver extension with a foam cover. The MSRP is $876.71.

I’ve discussed the new MC1sc line from Mossberg farther down in this section, plus have done a separate article on the site. However, I did not have a decent photo of the Centennial version before now. The Centennial is a limited edition version of the gun to commemorate the company’s return to handgun manufacturing. Functionally, it is the same as the normal guns, but with 24k gold plating as shown. It has a suggested retail price of $686.

Good info here 556NATO thanks!

The PPK is shorter than the PP by 0.6″ and has no metal backstrap, so the grips wrap around the rear. The PPK also has a shorter grip, and the magazines hold one less round. The PPK/S is a combination of the two. It has the shorter barrel and slide of the PPK, but the longer grip of the PP.
