1980?

I procured this PPK/S in .22lr a few weeks ago and was curious about the small lettering and lack of the sunburst on most Interarms logos I've seen. I believe this one may have been from 1980 since the serial # is only a few hundred away from another I saw posted with similar markings. I understand that some of PPK/S models had parts made in Germany which were then sent to France for some work and then sent back to Germany for finishing and proofing. Could this be ne of those even though the box says made in France? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

You have it a little backwards. Manurhin of France made all the parts for the W. German PP-series pistols, sent them in the white to Ulm, and Ulm finished them. That was from post-war until around 1986, when Ulm took back all manufacture and Manurhin lost their license.


Your pistol is rather strange, however, in that it's marked as a Walther. Pistols finished in France at Manurhin were sold under that stamp. Hopefully one of our experts will soon weigh in.

Sam Cummings, owner of Interarms, had the US-distributorship for both, Walther and Manurhin pistols. The PPK/S we talk about was made by Manurhin (early '80) w. Walther rollmarkings but without Walther's permission to do so. Legal in the US acc. to Cummings agreement, but it led to the lost of the licence in 1984.

You have to look at German proof marks (visible thru ejection port). My rough guess is ~1975.

Hi,
we (resp. I) need to know more details. It could be Walther/ZM (1934) and also Ulm (late 90's). Personally I
would like to see some pics .

If it says made in the USA, is it marked "Under license of Carl Walther Waffenfabrik Ulm/Do." and marked "InterArms" on the other side?
