Walther PPK
The famous Walther PPK in Lego.
About this creation
In 1896 a German named Carl Walther founded his WaffenFabrik and began producing sporting weapons and equipment. Soon he was assisted by his three sons, and in 1907 Fritz Walther created the Model 1 pistol, the first handgun the company had made. Pistols continued to be made under numbering system up until the Model 9 in 1921, after which the weapons were given names, like the Walther PP.

The PP was, like all of its predecessors, an unlocked blowback design, but what made it special was its double-action system. In a single-action, the hammer is cocked by the slide as it moves back. It can be uncocked by hand, but then will have to be cocked by hand again when the firer requires the weapon. However, in a double-action design, the hammer can be uncocked for safety, and does not need to be pushed back by hand again. It is instead cocked by the movement of the first stage of the trigger pull.

Thus, in the PP, when the safety was turned on the hammer dropped, the firing pin being kept out of its path. When the weapon was required, all that was necessary was to flip the safety catch and pull the trigger to fire, therefore getting around the problem of having to carry a loaded and cocked weapon to get the benefit of a quick response.

The PP, or Poliezi Pistole, was, as its name suggests, popular with police forces in Germany and elsewhere, and came to be much copied. But the model that became more famous was the Poliezi Pistole Kriminale: the PPK.

The PPK's name means Police Pistol Criminal, designed to be a very small gun that was concealable under normal clothing, not for criminals obviously, but for criminal detectives and plainclothes officers. It had a loaded chamber indicator as an added safety feature, and was immensely popular with plainclothes officers and detectives, both of whom required a compact pistol that could be quickly brought into action. It accquired true fame, however, from its use by Ian Fleming's character James Bond in most of the later novels [replacing a .25 Beretta] and all of the earlier movies [replaced by a 9mm Walther P99].

My own PPK was fun to build, being so small, and has a two stud wide frame, a three stud slide, and a one stud barrel, which I feel gives a better representation of the widths of the pistol than simply making both slide and frame three studs or two studs wide. Enjoy!

   Right side, with ejection port. Some early Walther pistols had the ejection port on the left, which meant that cases flew across the face of a right-handed shooter.

   Another good time to see the grips and ejection port as well as the trigger guard.

   Yes, the little piece I used for the hammer moves back with the slide. Shame on me, meanwhile have more of a look in the ejection port.

   The back edge of the grip, nothing special.

   The slide is the out-of-focus lump in the top right. This is the slotted piece it fits on, resting on jumper plates.

   The corresponding rail in the slide.

   That bit at the bottom is supposed to be a magazine extension of the type commonly seen on PPKs to enlarge the grip area. It isn't actually a part of a magazine on mine since the two-stud frame can't house one.

   Pointless shadowy picture. Ooooo, aaaaah.

   The front. There's a bit of grey barrel showing at the end.

   Minfig for scale. For some reason these pics always end up out-of-focus, but at least you get the idea.

Very nice, but it doesn't ring PPK. It looks more like a P99 more than anything. I like the PPK because of its unique barrel. My parents also think the same way. It's tough to build such a small pistol with LEGO bricks (I've tried with the P99 and failed miserably). For looks, I'd sacrafice the moving slide to make the curve top and the thinned barrel tip. The grip looks like it came from a PPK/S because it's a little larger. [BTW: I got to test fire a Walther PPK.] Good to see plenty of guns, though. Keep up the good work.

Great job on the Walther PPK, I think it is the most realistic looking one I have ever seen. I dont often build 3 stud guns, because it limits your ability to add features to the gun, but I think you have done a wonderful job. Now try making one with a functioning hammer ;).

hmm, another great moc from robert p. as usual, you just keep getting better and better, i like the design, history, and the whole gun, i can't find anything wrong, except the piece for the hammer moves with the slide :{, and there being no removabel clip, anyway, nice moc, as usual :), by the way, u should make a bigger gun next time, like a g36 or famas
