RSHA/SS - PPK & PP

Just bought this, it's in the mail to me. (up here we can mail guns).
Walther PPK .32 ACP with holster and 2 mags as was brought back by a WW2 war vet.
This PPK has the eagle over N markings and a serial ending in K that designates it as WW2 1st Variation Wehrmacht. (I think)
It has some wear on the slide as you would expect.





Got a couple of questions. Neither of the two mags has a finger rest. Is that normal for a war issue PPK?

Anybody seen a holster like this?




Thanks for any info.

Don't know about the PPK question. It looks like a nice one. We will need the serial number because it is necessary to determine the date manufacture. I think your holster may not be for the PPK it looks a little big. All the German holsters I have seen made for the PPK have Walther PPK stamped inside the over flap in blue ink. The holster may have originally had a PP or something equivalent in it at one time earlier in it's history.

Hello in Canada
Looks like a fine PPK.
We need the serial number, and the K has nothing to do with wehrmacht...
Eagle/N is wartime production, i can not see Waa359 or any markings behind the trigger, maybee it is a "commercial" but we need the serial...
Does the serial stands on both slide and frame?
Yes on the magazine question i think - flat mags in wartime is most common...

The holster looks wery interesting, and maybee it is for the gun, but i cant find som mush info about theese type of holsters...

So, picture of the side of the pistol that shows us the serial...

Serial number is 302113K. The gun is in the mail to me and I'll get some detailed pics when it arrives. It's coming from the other coast, so it may be a few days.

302113K would make it a 1940 production. Probably purchase by part of the Officer's requirement, if it is a commercial PPK. They were required to purchase their own sidearm when commission.

Perfect, without getting into a rant about some of the strange rules we have about handguns up here, I had a vested interest in this being pre 1946.

Perfect, thank you. I thought it looked a little odd. I actually have an old FN 1910 buried in the bottom of my storage.

I have a photo of the same holster design in Whittington's holster book vol. 3 labled as a Browning High Power soft shell of Belgian manufacture. Dimentions 8.75" high, 5.87" maximum flap width closed.

Thanks, it's on it's way to me, when I get it, I'll take some measurements.
