Questions on older PP/PPKS

Hi,

I am big fan of Walther and about year ago I got very nice PPK/s which is made/assembled in West Germany around 1968-69 and imported by Interarms here in US and it is amazing pistol in .32acp. About month ago I got on Gunbroker another Walther PP/.32acp also made in West Germany but around 1975 and imported by C.A.I Georgia. Condition of PP pistol also excellent and here is my questions:

- Is it true that all PP at that time was made my by Manurhin and just assembled either in Germany or France?
- I see practically no difference in quality, marks, finish and etc between my PP and PPKS I above. Is it also was made with Manurhin parts or it is German made. I can't find this info.

Thanks a lot!

The .32 PPK/S is a fine pistol to have. You get an extra round over a PPK, longer (PP) gripping surface and the milder .32 recoil. Can also use PP mags. i prefer it over a .32 PP.

Sounds like your PP is a German duty-surplus because of the C.A.I. marking.

There are numerous “stickies” under the PP series forum, including this pertinent thread that the OP might want to review. https://www.waltherforums.com/forum/...explained.html
