Walther PPK BB Gun- Read My Ultimate Review
Walther PPK CO2 BB Gun Ultimate Review
Walther PPK CO2 BB gun is a replica of the classic Walther PPK made famous by movie spy 007. The compact pistol features all metal construction (except for the hand grip panels), blow back, and fires in single action.
The single action uses some of the CO2 from the blow back to cock the gun for the next round to be fired. When all BBs are fired, the slide locks back to let you know it’s out.
The Walther PPK is available in the following series.
- PPK Black
- PPK with Silver Slide
- PPK Black with laser sight
- PPK Black with pink grips
- And the now discontinued PPK Classic with ivory grips with silencer and extra black grips.

This unique sleek looking gun features a blade and ramp style front site and a fixed rear site. The magazine release button is located on the left side near the trigger guard, while the safety switch is on the right near the trigger. The hand grip is quite comfortable and shaped to fit the hand comfortably.
You’ll wonder what the large ugly screw jutting out on the bottom of the hand grip is for on this gun. This is the gun’s CO2 cylinder retention screw. This is an unusual design and we wonder what the company was thinking.
The Walter PPK is powered by a single standard 12g CO2 cartridge inserted into the hand grip behind a pull off grip panel on the left of the gun. The grip panel is removed by pulling the panel off from the bottom. And The grip panel is held to the hand grip with a metal clip. This seems to be a better way to go, than the slide off grip panels that some other BB guns use that tend to become loose later on.
The Gun’s magazine holds 15 BBs. The magazine for some reason, is made of plastic, not metal. Although the magazine is plastic, it seems to be made of a fairly durable material. One more upside of these magazines is they are cheaper than typical metal ones, and a pack of three will run you about $17.
A negative factor about the magazine is the follower does not lock. Instead you must constantly hold the follower down while loading.
Now The Testing and Testing Methods:
- We’ll test the accuracy
- shots per CO2 cartridge
- BB velocity
- loudness of the pistol
- Temperature of the room is 73ºF .
- For accuracy the pistol will be used on a gun rest. A new CO2 cartridge will be used. five shots will be fired with a 15 second rest between shots. We will be using Daisy Premium grade BBs which have given us good results in the past. The target will be set for 15 feet away.
- The Shots per CO2 will be tested by firing shots with 15 second rests, till the performance of the pistol wanes.
- The Trigger Pull will be measured with a trigger gauge in lbs of force.
- The BB Velocity will be measured as an average of 5 shots through a Shooting Chrony.
- The Loudness will be measured with a dB meter.
- The Accuracy: 1.75” grouping
- The Shots Per CO2 Cartridge: 90-100 shots
- The Trigger Pull: 3 lbs
- The BB Velocity: 285 fps Average
- As forLoudness: 97 dB
Accuracy of the Walther PPK is fair and shoots 1.75 inch groupings. This is probably due impart to the short barrel and low velocity. This gun is good for plinking cans and the like, and we suggest firing from a maximum of 17 feet away. All in all the Walter PPK is a fun little gun to shoot. Everyone we showed the PPK to wanted to take it for a romantic ride. This good looking thing can also be a great gun for children to learn to shoot, thanks in part to its light trigger and fits well in almost all hands hands.
