Unique AC PP

Sponsored Links
I have a Walther PP with markings of serial number and AC on the right side of the slide and serial number (matching) on the frame behind the trigger. Those are the only markings either externally or internally on this pistol. The place below the safety lever has a round indentation that I normally see painted red, but on this pistol it appears to have never been painted. The pistol has black Walther plastic grips and the magzine says Walther on one side with a letter W on the other. The pistol is in excellent condition and doesn't show signs of reblue as all the edges are still sharp.
I know the AC PP's were supposedly made in 1945 and some might have been put together after the war by who knows. My questions would be has anyone seen any PP's with no proof marks. Any ideas or comments on this pistol would be appreciate.

Lots of those out there. At the wars end many were put togethers by GI's or others as you noted and just were never proofed.

Since the numbers match it may have been awaiting proof testing when the factory was captured. Most unproofed PP's are mismatched. The "W" stamp on the mag means the feed lips weren't heat treated.

unique pp ac

Thanks for replies. Pistol is about 98% with nice blue. The no proof marks is what threw me.

You're welcome. Since your PP wasn't proofed a gunsmith check is a good idea if you plan to shoot it. We'd like to see photos if you have time...

The last photo of the mag, I recall that the late war Walther's used "soft metal" for the mag bodies whick was ID'd by the letter "W". This might be one of those. Any thoughts yes or no?

unique pp

I haven't fired it yet, just keep it locked in safe. It does have a very smooth,light trigger pull compared to other pp's I have fired.
Don't know much about metal in the magazines, just what others have said on the posts
