Another French PPK/S

Sponsored Links
Read Ironguys post several days ago about French PPK/S "falling" into his lap, then this one fell into mine. Couple thousand #s later , I think maybe mid 70's. Same box etc as the 70's Interarms import Walthers. Has blem on left side over Manurhin crest that looks like a sticker was attached too long and flaked the finish. But I think the real reason it came out of the closet is the continued shortage of .380 ammo. The guy that had this initially wanted to trade for a .32, but when I declined he gave me a price I couldn't say no to. Made for a very good day.

Both of those examples are beautiful guns, gentlemen. Thanks for sharing the photos; we always love to see photos.

At one time the Manuhrin PPKs were readily available, but not so much any longer. Simpson's had two in .22 caliber that were listed on their site for about three months at $795 each; both have sold in the past couple of weeks. Simpson's also had one in .380, advertised as LNIB, for $595, but it sold within days of posting; this goes back maybe three months or so. If you go to places like Gunbroker or GunsAmerica, you don't have much luck finding any of the French-made PPK/S models, either ... and certainly not at a decent price. I was thinking of getting one for my son as a birthday gift, but I'm hard-pressed to find one at all, let alone a good buy on one.

Like all things guns these days, nothing is easy.
