Hello and thx for reply. The pistol is working very good. The only issue is that if I fill the magazine full there is sometimes a problem to chamber the first round in the first attempt.

Would you know if this pistol was just a privately owned since there are no Eagle or swastika on it?

If there is no additional marking the gun was commercial sold.

The story of this pistol is that my grandfather got it from a Kriegsmarine Kapitaleutnant after the peace in 1945. I have always assumed that it was his service gun and not privately owned. Would it be possible for private persons to purchase handguns in the Third Reich? I mean it was a police state by definition.

According to German law: Yes. But in fact this was very limited. Most "private" owners were party members at least. Also many service guns were sold commercial to entitled persons, f.e. to furloughed officers.

Thank you very much! Im happy to know that my PPK is from 1939. It will be much easier for me to track the history of it for my records.

Hello, I am new to the forum. I have a PPK with a serial 239434K which appears to be a 1939 model. It has a N with a crown over it. The holster is marked Otto Sindel Berlin 1941 with the Nazi eagle. This pistol was used as a back up by an American officer from the Battle of the Bulge till the end of the war. It is in great condition with just some wear on bluing. Anyone have ideas on what it might be worth? Thanks in advance.

I hope this will get me to the correct place in the forum. I have a .22 PPK Manurhin. The slide is marked made in France, Lic. Excl. Walther. The grips are marked Walther and are black. There is no serial number on the slide, on the grip behind the trigger guard the number is 5002xx LR. There is what looks like a shield stamped on the barrel at the ejection port and at the serial number on the frame. The gun is "brushed" blue with a brushed nickel finish on the trigger guard, safety lever, extractor, magazine and hammer. It was represented as a factory 2 tone model. Please help identify this gun. Thanks.

Help with identifying my pistol.

Hi;

I have an old Walther PP that bears the number 57491 on the slide, and 57491A on the frame, and I've yet to find any website that can tell me what year it was made. On the other side it says made in W. Germany

I've looked at several websites all to no avail. Can anyone give me the straight scoop on this Walther

Thank you;

F.S.
