Default Walther PK 380 RECALL

Just talked to my brother in-law who is a home based gun dealer,he wanted to make sure that my 380 wasn't on the recall list, and I wanted to make sure that anyone having one on this forum were apprised of the potential problem also.
Here is the info for those of you who own one.

Press release from Walther USA:

During an internal quality review, Carl Walther GmbH has identified a condition that may exist in certain PK380 pistols which may permit a round to be discharged if the trigger is pulled, despite engagement of the manual safety. Walther has found that engagement of the manual safety may not prevent firing of a chambered round when the trigger is pulled . . .

This recall applies to Walther PK380, .380 ACP pistols manufactured by Carl Walther GmbH from May through September 2012, which have a serial number range from PK101201 to PK112155.


Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential to cause injury, and we ask that you stop using your pistol until we have an opportunity to inspect it to make certain that there is no condition which will allow the pistol to discharge with the safety engaged.

To facilitate the inspection and repair, if necessary, of your pistol, please contact Waltheramerica’s customer service department at 1-800-713-0356 to receive instructions and a call tag for the return of your pistol to Waltheramerica.

Additional information will be posted on If you have any questions about this recall, please contact Waltheramerica at 1-800-713-0356.

Never argue with an idiot. They will just drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.--Red Green

I don't have one but thanks for posting it.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

i own one and i thank you. this also helps support my position on smith and wesson . and since s&w has absorbed walther and is stamping their name on the walther product, the quality is suspect . s&w has ruined the good name of walther because of quality control issues like this. this is not the first re-call nor will it be the last until s&w straightened out their act
