PPK mag...7.65 stamped over 9mm?

Sponsored Links
I have a 1941 PPK (7.65) that my grandfather brought back from WWII. The magazine will not lock into place, and can be easily removed without the release button. It feeds perfectly if I keep it pushed up with one hand though, and it does lock in place when the slide is removed. I recently took a closer look at the magazine. It appears that it was originally a 9mm magazine, and 7.65mm has been stamped on top of the 9mm stamp. Is this common? And is this likely the reason it does not function correctly?

Thanks in advance for any answers,

musky

How about a photo or two so that we can see exactly what you have, Musky?

Thanks for the replies. I'm not the best photographer, so this is the best I could do.

This is it. Notice how the mag doesn't quite go all the way in.


Here is the mag. This is the best pic I could get of the double stamp.


And this is the holster as long as I'm at it.


Thanks again!

Is there a hole in the magazine body for the button type mag catch to fit into? Can you post photos of both sides of the entire mag? It may be a bottom release 9mmk mag that was modified to fit a PDM (bottom release) 7.65mm PPK. Maybe not...need photos...

This is the entire mag



And this the hole I think you are talking about


Like I said, it locks in properly when the slide is removed, and the release button works as well without the slide.

I do have another question. I viewed this thread while signed out, and the pictures showed up, but when I'm signed in, only the links are there. Why is that?

Thanks again for all the help!

Six holes on both sides and "D" cutout for button release = PPK 7,65mm. 9mm kurz mags ZM made = six holes (PP) or five holes (PPK) on the right side, one on the left side and no cutout. In my opinion it's a 7,65mm.

Have you load the mag with some rounds resp. can you push the follower into the magazine without any problem? Has somebody (who marked it 9mm) bended up the magazine lips to fit 9mm rounds?

Yes, I can push the follower in without any problem.

The lips don't appear to be bent up, but I only have the one mag so I can't compare it to another. I will probably buy another mag or two, and then compare them.

It really looks like 9mm was stamped first, and 7.65 was stamped over it, but I could be wrong.

Thanks for the reply
