Red face 9mm PPK

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/File:Hanna_pps.jpg

If the Walther PP comes in 9mm, why dosen't the PPK? couldnt you just slice off the slide and barrel extension? Anyone get what I'm trying to ask here?

Are your reffering to 9x19mm or 9x17mm? 9x19, generaly known as just "9mm", is differant from 9x17mm (.380 Auto/9mm Short). The PPK is availible in 9x17, but with reduced magazine capacity.

No, I do mean 9mm (9x19mm) not .380ACP (9mm kurz) because the PP is chambered in that, so why isn't the ppk? Why isn't there a PP with a short barrel and slide chambered in 9x19mm?

Aside from a single line on Wikipedia I can't find any evidence of the regular PP ever being chambered in 9mm Para.

A PPS IS chambered in 9x19mm. Unfortunately, the picture provided is not a PPS, but a PP, which is not.

The PPS is a completely different weapon.

I thought walther had said 9x19 had too much pressure for a blowback gun and they were not going to make one?

The tag on the image originally said PPS. I've since changed it. The file name also has PPS in it.

Wikipedia says its chambered in 9x19 Para... Is it wrong? what is the pp chambered in?

Wikipedia says:
7.65x17mm Browning SR (.32 ACP)
9x17mm Short (.380 ACP)
.22 Long Rifle
6.35x15mm Browning SR (.25 ACP)
9x18mm Ultra (PP-Super)
9x19mm Parabellum

That's just wrong then. Like K9870 said, it just can't stand up to the pressures. I've never heard of it chambered in .22LR or .25 ACP as well, but at least it wouldn't surprise me.
