Stasi PPK modified for suppressor

I am not sure if I showed this pistol before on this forum.

Last year I added this interesting PPk to my collection:
It is a wartime Walther PPk that is modified by the East German Stasi to accept a suppressor. The barrel has been replaced for this purpose by a longer PP barrel which has been threaded.

The wartime serial number has been added to the right slide of the slide.

These PPk's were meant to accept Scorpion (VZ61) suppressors. These suppressors were clamped on the barrel of the Scorpion. The scorpion suppressors were mounted to the PPK by using an adapter made of the end of a scorpion barrel (one part of the barrel was used to clamp the suppressor, and the other end was threaded internally so that they could be screwed onto the PPk).
I am still looking for such an adapter and the scorpion suppressor....however no succes yet.

Do you have any reference material that shows the STASI PPK with the suppressor? I was just wondering as I have never seen any reference to such. In the US, people have done the PP barrel in the PPK conversion for suppressor use, most commonly with the .22LR version. In any case, yours is a very interesting pistol.

See the photo on Page# 44 of the book: Handguns of the Armed Organizations of the Soviet Occupation Zone and German Democratic Republic by Dieter H. Marschall

The PPK shown in the photo has the serial number added to the slide with the adapter mounted on the barrel and an unattached silencer as DennisV described.

Here's one place to buy s copy: Gun Show Books -- Handguns of the Armed Organizations of the Soviet Occupation Zone and German Dem
