** The PPK remains as Peggy's sidearm in ''Series/AgentCarter''.



* The default Pistol in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' heavily resembles a stainless PPK, with some hints of the Makarov PM that was loosely based on a proposed upgrade to the PPK. Ironically, it's used by the Scout and Engineer, but not [[TuxedoAndMartini the Spy]].

* The most famous user is, of course, Film/JamesBond, who replaces his Beretta (either an M1934 or 418, depending upon the media) with a PPK chambered in 7.65mm (.32 ACP, although calibres varied depending on the actor - [[Creator/SeanConnery Connery]], [[Creator/TimothyDalton Dalton]] and [[Creator/PierceBrosnan Brosnan]] carried it in .32 ACP, while [[Creator/GeorgeLazenby Lazenby]], [[Creator/RogerMoore Moore]] and [[Creator/DanielCraig Craig]] opted for the .380 ACP version) in ''Film/DrNo''. He uses this until replacing it with a Walther P99 in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'', though as of ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' Bond has returned to the PPK.[[note]]Reverting to the PPK for the more realistic reboot was entirely logical, as Bond is a ''spy'' (and sometimes an assassin when needed, hence the famous "license to kill"). A full-sized service pistol like the P99 is difficult to conceal, and thus ill-suited to Bond's line of work. The introduction of the P99 was one of the few examples of a character's firearm choice being MerchandiseDriven: there was an endorsement deal with Walther, who wanted to have what was then their newest product featured in the current Bond movie. The PPK, on the other hand, is even today a viable choice for a concealed weapon, being small but just powerful enough to be a decent defensive (or assassination) weapon.[[/note]] In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', he is given a PPK with an ID lock so only he can fire it.

** In the [[Literature/JamesBond books]], Bond originally wielded a suppressed .25 [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beretta_418 Beretta 418]] until [[Literature/FromRussiaWithLove it got caught in his waistband]] and he was nearly killed as a result. In ''Literature/DrNo'' he gets his iconic PPK, and while he's rather unhappy about losing his beloved sidearm, by ''Literature/{{Goldfinger}}'' he's accepted the PPK as his new (and arguably more sensible) sidearm.

The pistol that was responsible for starting UsefulNotes/WorldWarI! [[note]]This pistol in .380 ACP was used by Gavrilo Princip to assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Some sources mistaken the weapon that was used for Browning's earlier pistol, the FN Model 1900.[[/note]] John Browning had designed the Model 1910 pistol at the year 1910. Unlike with his earlier pistols and the later pistols like the M1911 (where Colt developed Browning's pistols in America while FN developed for Europe), Colt had no interest in developing the pistol in America. So Browning had his pistol made in Europe exclusively through Fabique Nationale. The pistol could either be chambered in .32 ACP or .380 ACP by changing the barrel to the appropriate cartridge (barrels sold separately). Browning designed the Model 1910 to make some improvements on his first success, the Model 1900 pistol. One of the major improvements was to have the operating spring coiled around the barrel. This became the standard with later pistols such as the PPK and Makarov. It also has a "triple safety" where it has [[RuleOfThree a grip safety, magazine safety and a lever safety.]]

The pistol was very popular in Europe in the civilian and military markets; this pistol was sold in places like France, Finland, the Netherlands, and even Japan.[[note]]Japanese officers often bought European pistols like this one over the domestic Type 14 Nambu and the infamous Type 94 pistol.[[/note]] In fact, the Japanese created the [[RareGuns rare]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_4h9pp5fxQ Hamada Pistol]] that was based on this gun, chambered in the .32 ACP cartridge. Not only was this gun used in the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand as above, but also used for the assassinations of American Congressman UsefulNotes/HueyLong and French President Paul Domour. It wouldn't be until 1983 (roughly over ''seventy years'' from its introduction) when production had ceased.

ceased.

'''Historical Note:''' It was mentioned earlier that this pistol started World War I, it was because this pistol in .380 ACP was used by Gavrilo Princip to assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo of August 1914 (Some sources mistaken the weapon that was used for Browning's earlier pistol, the FN Model 1900). Which launched a domino effect that soon lead to the war starting. This pistol was also used for the assassinations of American Congressman UsefulNotes/HueyLong and French President Paul Domour.

The first American made double action 9mm pistol, this pistol was developed for the Army's pistol trials of 1954. Intended to be an American equivalent of the Walther [=P38=], it incorporated several features from it, such as the decocker, though it used a full length slide as opposed to the Walther's exposed barrel. Although the Army abandoned the pistol trials, the Model 39 found favour with Navy [=SEALs=] who used the regular version and a modified one known as the Mk 22 "Hush Puppy" which could be fitted with a supressor and locked the slide to allow quiet action. The pistol also proved to be very popular on the police and civilian markets with several variants of it being made over time. There was even a heavily-customized unofficial variant called the ASP, which was one of the first pistols designed for concealed-carry.
