    I was wondering if anyone here has put a sound suppressor on thair walther ppk and if so which make/model was it? I can't seem to find anyone that makes one for a .380 but I'am guessing a 9mm one would work fine maybe? For those who have put a sound suppressor on thair ppk what modifications where made to the gun in order to fit the suppressor i.e. can they just thread the exisiting barrel to accept it? Lastly any info on this and recommendations on where to buy from a good class 3 dealer would be great as well as any pics of member's suppressed ppk's thanks all.

    Here's mine.....


    The suppressor was manufactured by Jonathan Arthur Ciener in Coco Beach, Florida. The original barrel was removed and a longer, perforated barrel installed to support the suppressor's weight. The barrel extends about 3" into the suppressor with only the last inch or so threaded.

    Since I live about 2 hours from Coco, I purchased it directly from Ciener.

    He also builds suppressors for the .22LR Walther TPH.

    I don't have one, but have seen ones on .32 PPK's and they work fine, maybe a bit better than the .380's.

    As Hkmp5sd says, you need a new barrel with at least 3" to put the can on. The normal PPK barrel can't be threaded since there is not enough sticking out. The movies just use a PP with a PPK slide, so there is enough barrel sticking out to put on a dummy suppressor.

    FWIW, in the "007" movie where so much is made of the PPK, Bond comes under fire, ducks behind a couch with his PPK, and comes up with - a 1922 Browning with a 1910 slide. Same idea, enough barrel to hang the dummy can onto, and I guess they thought no one would notice the gun switch.
