    I was reading Outdoor Life this morning and found a recall notice for the Walther PPK of certain years.

    The notice warns that "a condition might exist in which a round may discharge without the trigger being pulled".

    Evidently there is a flaw with the block safety, so remove any round from the firing chamber.

    Go to S&W's site or the Walther USA site for more information.

    This has been a public service announcement...you may now return to your regularly scheduled thread.

    STOP USING YOUR PISTOL AND RETURN IT TO SMITH & WESSON AT ONCE.

    Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential for causing injury, and we ask that you stop using your pistol immediately.

    To facilitate the repair of your pistol, please contact Smith & Wesson’s customer service department to receive instructions for the return of your pistol to Smith & Wesson.

    When you return your pistol to Smith & Wesson, we will replace the existing hammer block feature with a new part at no cost to you. Your firearm will be returned as quickly and efficiently as possible.
