Congratulations on your remarkable find. Hope you will share your experiences on shooting this rare pistol. And maybe if it's not too much to ask how did you ever luck onto such a find.

Also in case I forgot at first. Welcome to the forum

Now that is a nice pistol.

The .25 has a cartridge has a horrible rep - but that's from it's being used in tiny pistols with a half inch of rifled barrel.

I imagine in a "big" pistol like a Walther PP, it preforms pretty well. Like a .22 LR but with the advantages of center fire reliability. As someone noted recently, the esteemed Skeeter Skelton put his .22 PPK/S over a chronograph and found it preformed as well as a 6" K22. Now if only you could find a box of Black Talons in .25 ACP!

Not like this would bring down a B-17 or Mustang ... Then there is the rarity factor. Doubt this pup would bring $7,000 - but the right buyer just might lay down some real green.

What is the relief cut above the chamber? It looks like it is quite deep.
They're not using barrel gas to boost the force to move the slide?

I will bet that even Tanfoglio doesn't have one of those... Now that would be amazing.

This pistol is really special. Also the way of loading the rounds backwards into the magazine surprises me. But it seems to work somehow...

My father gave it to me, saying it was a rare gun but none of us knew how rare it is. So I gave myself the task of researching a bit, and so I found the forum.

And Thank you. I really need to learn more about!!

Azuara, like many here have commented, this pistol is truly something very rare and special - don't you ever part with it! I've never seen one of them before, anywhere.

I'm surprised King Tanfoglio hasn't come to visit yet. He is God of all Walther Collections Incarnate and his collection is absolutely astounding. I would be shocked if he didn't have a treasure to match yours in the depths of his magical palace somewhere. Perhaps a PM could nudge him toward this interesting discussion?

Rankin lists five examples, the latest produced in 1936 in the 9xx xxx range. So production doesn't seem to have been discontinued. Perhaps rather it was the choice of buying a nice Model 8 in 6,35mm or paying more for the PP in the same caliber.

Azuara, I noticed you removed this photo. Is this the magazine for the pistol. Although the cartridge is reversed, the rest of them seem to be 6,35mm. But the magazine seems to be for a .22 lfb Walther.



Is this the magazine for your pistol? Or is there another. Rankin notes that the magazines for both the 6,35mm PP and PPK are standard 7,65mm design but that they have no cartridge counting holes and have an inset to accept the 6,35mm cartidge. Some collectors believe that a Model 8 magazine was fixed inside the PP/PPK 7,65mm magazine as a quick factory solution.
