The Walther PPK, a smaller version of the PP with a shorter
grip, barrel and frame, and reduced magazine capacity.
A new, two-piece wrap-around grip panel construction was used to conceal
the exposed back strap.
The smaller size made it more concealable than the original PP and hence
better suited to plainclothes or undercover work. It was released in 1930.
PPK is an abbreviation for Polizeipistole Kurz (Police Pistol Short),
"kurz" referring to the police Pistol with a shorter barrel
Walther's original factory was located in Zella-Mehlis in the "Land"
