Welcome to the forum, Marksw! Please go to the introductions section and tell us a little about yourself.
On to your question.
I have yet to fondle one of these.
However, I work in a gun store so I'm always doing research on different guns so that I can better answer customers questions.... that, and I just love learning new things about guns
The PK380 was based on the design of the Walther P22.
The P22 is a great gun, and it has the most comfortable grip I've ever put in my hand.
Walther is a good brand, the walthers that we buy in the states are now made by Smith and Wesson. Any walther is usually a great gun, aside from problems the Smith made PPK was having, I haven't heard of any problems with other walther designs.
I apologise for not being able to give more info, hopefully someone else will come along shortly and shed more light on the subject.
