For all of you non-Czech readers I took a picture of the table, you find it in attachement Bal_S.

Exactly what I was looking for to determine when my PP32 #750666 was manufactured.

You are going to have to cough up a whole lot more information than that to get any idea from anyone here, joe. I'd suggest that you start a new thread in this section and provide some sharp photos that give us clear idea about what you own, with a description of the pistol's overall condition and whether it's mechanically sound. You also might want to read the What Do I Have Here/What's It Worth? thread in the meantime.

Is there any way to find out where a PP was used. I know it's from 1938.

New to forum. Help on serial numbers would be greatly appreciated. I have a PP 7.65 serial# on slide 390xxxp with ac under it. Serial # on frame is different. 392xxxp. No other markings that I can see on frame or slide.

A Walther PP in .32 ACP with a serial number starting with 390... was manufactured sometime during 1945, heading toward the end of the war. The ac designation was the Walther plant's secret Nazi code designation, designed to keep the Allies from knowing where firearms were being manufactured. Someone along the way swapped out the frame and slide for whatever reason. We'd need good photos to tell you more.

If it's an "ac" code PP that's mismatched and not proofed it was probably assembled after the factory was captured by the US Army. The parts were not always fitted properly so these PP's should be checked by a gunsmith before firing. Here's some more information from the Pancho Gun Collection.

Bob's correct. These are often called cigarette guns ... put together by locals still hanging around the plant after the Russians left who worked for cigarettes.

Danke Schoen to all of you.

Thanks for the help on dating the manufacture of my PP s/n 138xxxP. This pistol was distributed to Brazilian navy officers around 1952, I am not sure what happened between 1938/39 and 1952, so I still have a bit of a mystery to deal with. The PP and PPK were popular pistols in the Brazilian armed forces in the 60's. I will see if the Czech books are still available on Amazon. I had no idea there would be such a good group of Walther buffs.
