The Illinois State Police Academy, Firearms Unit has learned there is a major safety recall by Smith and Wesson regarding the Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols. Smith and Wesson has identified a defect in certain pistols that could cause a chambered round to fire when the pistol's hammer is lowered, even without the trigger being pulled. Smith and Wesson is advising owners of affected Walther pistols to stop using the guns at once and return them to Smith and Wesson for installation of a new hammer block to remedy the defect. This recall applies to all Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols manufactured by Smith and Wesson between March 21, 2002, and February 3, 2009.
