The army didn't issue the PPK and the PPK-L as personal weapons. Less than 800 pistols of these types had been adopted by the Swiss Army and they didn't differ from standard Ulm marked pistols with the exception of two additional Swiss marks.

I entered the army a little to late. So I got the P220 (pistol 75) instead. I don't like its design but at the end of my military career I kept it nevertheless.

Recently I had luck once again. I came across one at least visually intact revolver by the Waffenfabrik Bern (W+F) from the first series with plastic grips. Of course I couldn't resist.

The new acquisition, which has been delivered to the army in 1896 is a perfect addition to my other Swiss Ordnance Revolver 1882 from the second series fitted with wood grips which was made around 1927.
