Summary: Only seen for a short period in Dr. No, the .25 calibre Beretta was taken from Bond by the armourer because although Bond liked the gun, it had failed him on a mission. And so the armourer suggested the perfect replacement weapon for a secret agent…the Walther PPK. Bond’s classic gun, the German-made Walther PPK is introduced in Dr. No. It replaced the .25 caliber Beretta, which was unreliable in tight situations. The PPK is 7.65mm caliber with a 7 round magazine. It’s most desirable feature is it’s size, as it is perfect for concealment. This makes it one of the favorite pistols in secret services around the world. The ideal successor to the classic PPK, the Walther P99 is a 9mm double action semi-automatic pistol. The P99 has a 12 round magazine with a trigger that is both single and double-action.
