What kind of Ammo does the German PPK use?
I know they are produced in only .32 ACP now, but they were using .9 or .22, in the day, right?
Can't find info. Please help if you knoww. Thanks.

The PPK was made to fire three different rounds. You already know about the 32. They also made some that fired the 22 long rifle. The most common was a larger round than both.
In Germany it is called "9 mm Kruz"
(That means 9 mm short.)
In Metric, it is called "9 x 18"
In the USA, it is called the "380" or "380 ACP" or the "9 mm Short"
The PPK was never made in the 9 mm Luger or Parabellum as the PPK uses a simple blow back design and it can not handle the recoil of the more powerful round.

I believe it came in .32, 9mm, .380 and .22 LR

Fireball has it correct; the PPK's people think are marked 9mm are actually marked 9mm K or Kurtz, which is 9mm short which is the .380ACP.
