Agreed. The Walther has the style points, but the Beretta Model 70 is the better gun in pretty much every way except style (although, I like the style of the 70). Mine is lighter, slimmer, and has a better trigger than the PPK.Didn't miss anything--both my original Walthers do the same thing.
The hammers don't bite me, the slide does. And spending its energy chewing up my hand surely can't do anything for its functioning/reliability, either, I'm sure. :???:
My Beretta 70 is a much more comfortable and enjoyable gun to actually shoot for that reason. (And, it's slim!)
My Astra model 3000 is also "better" than the Walther IMO.
