PP 7.65 info

My grandfather gave me this Walther PP 7.65. I don't know anything about it. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Everything to be known about this gun is written on it 😉 Made in West Germany in 1988. And it's in .32ACP aka 7,65. Imported into the US by Century Arms International.

Thanks, I guess I should have just asked what year it was made. That's what I was mainly wondering about.

Acc. to the serial number the gun was more probably made in 1972/1973. Slide was changed, that's why a 2nd proof was marked on the slide.
olsoul and Absalom like this.

When I took the slide off, I saw that it's marked "73".

Seems to be a gun, repaired/refurbished acc. to German law in Germany. Your grandpa has got any connections to Germany?

He's retired US Navy. I'm pretty sure he's been there. It would have been during the 60's & 70's.

Serial numbers (inside the slide/on the frame) do not match. So it's hard to tell if the slide repair was done in Germany or later.
