Does NOT fit PPK/S Review by Brenda
Sorry to be a downer, this looks like a great product, but I just bought a new Walther PPK/S....bought this laser for it. Removed the factory grip and under it was a convex pad of stainless steel. For this grip to work that area needs to be either concave or flat.
This grip laser does NOT fit on the new PPK/S despite what the box says.

Grips cover about 1/2 of the grips on the left of the slide. Review by Dead Dog
I am a 62 year old fart and my hands are not real strong anymore. I really like the LG-480 grip/laser sight for my Walther. The only thing I don't like is it is harder to chamber a round with part of the groves covered. To try and overcome this I started to squeeze a rubber ball a hundred times a day. The laser guard type would be better (Posted on 2/21/13)
srew for grip Review by TC
The original screw that comes with the Walter made by S & W is a fraction too long for the laser grip after about 100 rounds you can see that the screw will protrude out of the right side of grip. Ive contacted S& W and they suggest to file it down . You have to be careful and not damage the treads . Crimson trace should correct this by including a screw the correct size I have asked them but they dont seem responsive I have filed it down but there still is a small indent where the original screw started to wear through. Otherwise a great product (Posted on 1/29/13)
This the best sight for low or dark Review by Terry

Still works perfect after 5 years of tropical carry Review by KodiakJack
The lasergrips for my S&W version stainless steel PPK/s fit perfectly and were easy to install. Not only that but once the screws were tightened my gun shot (almost exactly) where the laser pointed right out of the box. After a couple tweaks to the sighting screws with the provided Allen-wrench it has shot consistently where the laser points year after year. Frankly I was worried about having a battery powered sighting system here in the tropics but the CrimsonTrace has proven to have worked flawlessly after 5 years of almost daily tropical carry.
PS When I say tropical carry, I mean hot and humid, conditions that you might think would take their toll on a laser sight….not so with the Crimson Trace LG-480.

Product failed quickly Review by DN
Purchased grips and installed easily. Issue is the button began to fail. The laser would not always turn on despite new batteries. Eventually the mechanism failed. Now it just sits in the box, $340 wasted. (Posted on 9/29/12)
Perfect Fit! Review by Timothy
I just recieved my Crimson Trace Lasergrip for my Walther PPK/s in today's mail. Even though I will not be able to go to the range till the end of the week, I couldn't wait to install it.
I was a little skeptical of the cam system that is used to adjust the grip panel to fit with all of the multiple manufacturers of this firearm over the last 40 years.
I shouldn't have been concerned. I bought my PPK/s new as a college graduation present to me, from me, in 1976. It was made in East Germany and the grips almost snapped in. They were a perfect fit without making any adjustments. Can't ask for better than that.
The laser does obscure about half of the grip grooves on the rear of the slide on the right side. Minor problem and I will just have to adjust how I manipulate the slide. A slightly more concerning problem is how the safety lever rubs the grip on the left side. This does make you have to be more aware when you engage the safety.
Next stop, the range. I will update after I have a chance to do some shooting with this laser.

If James Bond had a laser... Review by Thomas
This is a trusty sight for the PPK. I bought mine with the laser grip pre-installed. It fit perfectly in my hand, and the laser was accurate after some minor adjustments. Great product! (Posted on 6/22/12)
Nice Add-on Accessory for a Classic Pistol Review by BigG
Got my laser as a christmas gift - sweet!. Takes a little bit of time and some trial and error to get the grips adjusted to fit the grip frame properly but nothing that would be too challenging for the average gun owner. Getting it zeroed in for a specific range (like 10 meters) also takes a little bit of trial and error from a bench rest. The windage and elevation adjustments for the laser are good but they are not "click adjustable" like a traditional rifle scope so there is a bit of "adjust and fire for effect" type of guesswork involved with getting it zeroed in for the desired range in addition to the box of ammo that you will go through doing this. I had one small problem with the underside of the safety lever rubbing slightly on the top of the left side of the grip becasue the tolerance was so tight between them. This led to some chambering issues with the safety on becasue the safety level was getting caught on the top of the grip when I cycled the slide. After making some additional adjustments to the grip fit as well as just "breaking in" the new grip to the frame, the action was no longer being restricted by the new grip with the safety on. Other than the minor issues noted above, the sight works great and it adds a lot of value and effectiveness to a personal carry and home defense pistol that I have had for many years.

Fast target acquisition Review by Bud
I keep it by my bed in the nightstand, the laser sight is clearly visable in the dark and would most likely scare the pants off a burgler once they saw the red laser light. (Posted on 12/18/11)
Offers Quick Target Acquisition on a Classic Pistol Review by David
I bought my PPK/S with the LG-480 grips already installed on it. These LaserGrips allow me to quickly obtain target acquisition without the need to raise the sites up to eye level, which is critical in a self defense situation where seconds can make a difference. I carry this Walther in the warmer months and love the fact that the Crimson Trace grips do not make it any bulkier than the standard factory grips, nor do they detract from the classic looks of this iconic piece.

Walther PPK/S and LaserGrips make the perfect self defense combo! Review by IBEWSportsman
I bought my Walther PPK/S with the Crimson Trace LG-480 LaserGrips already installed. The quality and color of the grips not only compliment this classic pistol, but they increase my confidence through the knowledge that I can get on the target quickly and precisely, saving precious seconds it takes to bring the gun up to eye level in a life threatening situation. You just squeeze the grips and put the red dot where you want it. (Posted on 12/11/11)
