Price question on 1962 PPK .32

Sponsored Links
At the gun show yesterday, there was a mint, in the box 1961 Walther PPK .32 with the instruction manual, test target, bore brush, etc. Even the box alligator cardboard box was in excellent condition. The gun had that deep, dark handsome blue with the the dark brown grips. Just gorgeous.

The asking price on the table's tag was $895. What do you all think of that price? It was very tempting. I have a 1966 .380 PPK with the box and test target but I don't have the instruction manual or the cleaning kit. I know the .380 is very desirable, but this little .32 sure looks great. Definitely a gun I don't see everyday.

Day 2 of the show is today. Tempting. Verrrrry tempting. I have a pre-war .32 Zella-Mehlis PPK so again, I don't need this 1961 PPK. But need and want are two very different things!

The best and safest comment I can suggest is that the gun is worth every penny of the asking price if in fact you want to buy it at that price. Based on what you describe, I've seen pistols in similar condition sell for far more money -- upwards of $1,500 -- and, a few times, for somewhat less money, though these usually involve just the pistol itself. The thing is, you a) don't often see them, and b) you surely don't often see them in this condition with all of the goodies attached.

If you have been itching to own a representative sample, this one sounds like a good bet. One thing is certain: The prices are not going to drop anytime soon.

Keep us posted. Post a few photos if you decide to pull the trigger.

Definitely a very good price. IMHO, you should seriously consider purchasing it. As the above mentioned reply mentioned, PPK's in the condition of the one you are considering, easily are going for $1500 and above in todays market. One other factor to bear in mind, is that the 7,65mm pistols tend to be a little harder to obtain than the 9x17mm PPK's.

Wow, that's not bad at all for the shows I've been attending in the Phoenix area. Based on what I've been seeing here, that was a very fair price.

Yes, definitely follow the advice above.

And-I'll give you some guaranteed "buyer's insurance":

If you decide not to keep it-I would like to be first in line to buy it from you-as long as it is in fact as you described-mint and unfired-for what you paid for it-including all the fees, etc.(I am serious about this!).

Looking forward to seeing some photos too if you do buy it.

mm6mm6,
Did you decide to purchase the 7,65mm Walther PPK that you had a lead on?

I couldn't make it back to the show on Sunday. You guys had really pushed me over the edge, but family situations came up that kept me away.

It was the CADA Gun Show at the new Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, Illinois.

I will say that if that gun is at the show in 3-4 months when it comes around again, I'm buying it.

Never did get it and the gun show is now cancelled. I wonder what ever happened to it?

Sheez, M&M. You got me all excited until I realized this thread is a bit out dated.

You can bet that gun is long gone. There are a LOT of guys realizing that the .32's are the hot ticket, more rare than .380's, the true "Bond" gun, and a blast to shoot OR hang on to as they are just going UP.
