The Walther PP was released in 1929 as a sidearm for German detectives and plain clothes police. The PP was the world’s first successful double action single action auto, and also uses a slide mounted safety/decocker system that has been replicated in many other famous firearms, including the Beretta 92FS. It also utilizes a blowback action that delivers the recoil directly into the web of the hand, and has likewise been replicated in many other famous and successful firearms as well such as the Makarov and Bersa Thunder. The compact version of the PP is called the PPK, which is a far more famous firearm.
