I take it you refer to Dr. No? He had to return it... the PPK was better or something along those lines.

He is forced to discontinue using it in Dr. No because M felt it had little stopping power and it had jammed on Bond before in a previous mission which resulted in him being hospitalized due to gunshot wounds. M instructed the Q Branch officer to give him the standard issue Walther PPK.
Actually, the real life-thing, was because Fleming received a letter from a 'Geoffrey Boothroyd', saying that a the Beretta that Bond used was a lady's gun, and after several letters, Boothroyd recommended the Walther PPK as being the best automatic of that size.
In honour of the man who technically gave Bond the pistol that became one of the greatest weapons throughout film, Q was named Boothroyd.
