Bond, James Bond -- 1964 German Modell PPK Cal. 9mm kurz Acquired

So on the wall at one of my local gun shops I saw this picture of Roger Moore as 007 holding his PPK. I love Walthers and asked the proprietor if he had a PPK in stock.

He showed me a beautiful, German-made PPQ with brown plastic grips, two mags (one extended, one flat bottomed) and a black flap holster. No original box, sadly. Serial number 105412A

Only flaw is a poorly double-struck stamping "Made in Germany" on the side by the trigger guard.

There is a "64" next to the antler proofmark on the barrel. So I think it's a 1964.

No Interarms logos. Just the Walther logo. Other proofmarks are the eagle with an "N" beneath it. Some commenters say a gun like this might have been made in France but assembled in Germany. Not sure. Nothing about France on it, however.

Its bluing is deep and very beautiful. Black, really, with a mirror shine few pistols have. Barrel is pristine. Hardly looks like it's been fired.

Apparently came from a Walther collector who was moving to Thailand and could not take his collection.

Yes, I know the PPK is supposed to be a 7.65mm/.32ACP but it's close enough and I'm going to keep it.

I paid $900 for it. Too much?

The question is, should I fire it or buy a new/current PPK or PPK/S as a shooter?

I paid $1500 for mine a few months ago (1966 Ulm PPK with 6 mags and a holster). I think you did quite well.

As far as Iím concerned they are all shooters. Maybe not a holster/carry gun, but everything should be used as intended IMHO....

Nice looking ppk. I have 1 just like yours but born in 68. I paid 800.00 for it about 5 years ago.

A PPK of any caliber is better than none at all.

Very, very nice. Wish I could run across W. German PPK in that condition for that price? Congratulations.

I have the exact same pistol sans extra magazine and accessories. A friend recently gave the weapon to me. This weapon does not have a number next to the antets but instead IC. The serial number is 249129A. Any idea what year this pistol was manafactured?

I sold a LNIB 9 mmk Ulm PPK/S last year for $1K and after I made the deal felt the guy would have happily paid more. You did good and won't ever lose money on the gun unless you pawn it or trade it in).
