PP/PPK serials table - Jan Balcar's books

As I have already mentioned here in another post, I was impressed by the books by Jan Balcar. I have just bought two of his new ones called "Samonabijeci pistole nemeckych ozbrojenych sil" in Czech. Not only I have found a nice serials table for PP/PPK there (not based on the others rotating on internet, I think), but also a lot of information, drawings, etc. I know, that there won't be much people able to read Czech here, but I suppose it will be translated in english too as his earlier one was - http://www.amazon.com/The-P-38-Pistol-Spreewerk-Production/dp/images/1604583649 If so, don't miss the books. For all of you non-Czech readers I took a picture of the table, you find it in attachement Bal_S.

As has been mentioned previously, Ron Clarin (Ron from Minnesota) is a member here, and Jan Balcar has stopped by from time to the time. The Spreewerk book is a terrific resource for P.38 owners/collectors. We'll have to do some checking to see if this new work will be released in an English edition. Thanks for posting this, Sycro. It's good information, and the chart should be of interest to all PP/PPK owners.

Thanks a lot for serial chart. My serial (194xxxP) was completely skipped in the other list I looked at.

I'm having a hard time finding info for my serial number! It starts 379XXX but has NO "P" after it! The serial numbers match on both the slide and frame.

Does anyone know anything about serial numbers on a Walther PP 7.65 WITHOUT a "P" at the end??

Post war? Is it a Zella-Mehlis slide or an Ulm slide.

It has the Ulm slide.

It also has the "Eagle over N" stamp in two places, one with a 68 to its right and what looks like an antler or elk horn next to that (on the ejection port)
and one more stamp that has been stamped over with an "XXX" near the grip too. I don't know if those other stamps might help...

I'd advise starting a new thread and including a couple of detailed photos of your pistol. That will allow the experts to get a look at it and let you know aht you have.

Ah, the serial list above pertains to production from 1929-1945. Your PP is postwar with the W. German E/N proof. The number 68 should be the proofing date of 1968.
