The Walther PK380 pistol is a newest .380 ACP handgun for sale and is based on the very popular P22. Â It is a compact handgun with a polymer frame. Â The gun is hammer fired, not striker fired as many modern polymer guns are.
These Walther pistols are not the tiny, subcompact pistols like the Ruger LCP. Â Instead, the PK380 handguns are a little larger, which makes them easier to shoot. Â By having a marginally larger size, the guns tend to be more reliable and can have features typically found on large handguns like a larger capacity and better sights.
The PK380 magazine will hold eight rounds, giving the shooter nine on tap before a reload. Â Nine rounds is not a sure thing when it comes to stopping an attacker, but it is a darn sight better than the five rounds I carry in my J-frame revolver.
As I suggested earlier, the sights on the Walther P380 are much more visible than you might expect on a compact handgun. Â They are configured in a three-dot sight system. Â The sight radius is a very useable 5.4″. Â A nice bonus is that the sights are made of steel instead of plastic.
