Walther disassembly manual?

Sponsored Links
Anyone know if this book gives DETAILED instructions on taking apart the PP series??? I don't mean just taking off slide and recoil spring, I mean a total disassembly of every part.

Know Your Walther PP and PPk Pistols (Paperback)
by E. J. Hoffschmidt (Author)

That book is older than "dirt" and a pretty good reference. I don't recall if it has detailed breakdown instructions, though.

I have an old NRA "Firearms Assembly II" NRA Guidebook to Handguns. It has the breakdown for the PP Walther distilled on to two pages. I can scan and try to post the pages, but won't be able to do that for a day or so as my daughter - knowledgeable about posting this type of stuff is out of town.

Let me know if that would be useful.

Hmmmm...thanks for the offer, but I can get the exploded view at Numrich Gun Parts. I was looking more for written instructions. Maybe they don't exist

No luck yet. When I get back from vacation I may order that book by Hoffschmidt.

The Hoffschmidt book is excellent, with the superb drawings for which he is justifiably famous, and well worth the money. But you probably will not find in there the level of detail you're seeking. Moreover, some of his commentary is misleading, if not erroneous; following his instructions exactly is likely to scratch up or damage the gun.

The only detailed instructions I know of in English are in a shop manual prepared at Interarms that was used to train police armorers. It covers fitting of replacement parts, as well as disassembly. As far as I know, it was never published, though copies may have been provided to the trainees.

Thanks Mike. Saves me the money I would have spent on the Hoffschmidt book. I suspect if I write to Walther asking for the instructions I would get a reply warning me NOT to disassemble it. But I may write them anyway. Can't hurt

Deputy, here's a scan of the two pages from Hoffschmidt's book, I hope this helps. The book is required reading for any Walther PP/PPK fan! I can look at the picture of the KPK all day long!

Good instructions, similiar to the ones I was going to post from the NRA.

Don't take the sear out of your Walther, in later models they are pressed in and permanent.

Use a brass tool to push the extractor plunger out of the way - lots of ways to slip and scratch.

The cocking piece (sear) studs are swaged in and should not be removed except to replace the cocking piece. When doing so, it's best to use new studs.

Removing the extractor is much easier (and avoids scratches and frustration) by simply removing the safety first. The same spring powers both the safety detent and the extractor.
