serialled Mags for RSHA (SS) PPK

Hello everybody,
when looking at my spare part box I found two RSHS mags for PPKs serialled on the spine: 281592K "2" and 306589K "2".
If anybody out there needs one or both, make me a decent offer.
Best wishes,
Dieter H. Marschall at dhimarshall(at)gmx.de

serialled RSHA mags

I have further information: Both mags are in very good condition and show the typical dull wartime finish. I would like to sell them. So if anybody is interested ....
I can tell you from my files:
PPK 281592K was produced in 1940 and issued to the "Reichssicherheitshauptamt" ("RSHA" aka "SS").
On PPK 306589K I have further information: This pistol was produced in 1941 and issued to RSHA, too. It belongs to a lot of PPKs which were in July 1941 issued to the "SS-Einsatzgruppen Sicherheitspolizei und Sicherheitsdienst" in Lemberg (today called Lwiw in the Ukraine). There, I am afraid, the SS were involved in what they called "cleaning procedures" among the local population.


Best wishes, Dieter.

Bummer... I have a different Serial Numbered RSHA PPK that I bought WITHOUT a matching mag, but alas, it's not one of these.


At least my RSHA PP has a matching mag!!


Anyone know where one of the two 258917K matching mags are?


BTW that 306xxx one is rare indeed. Aren't most of the Einsatzgruppen PPKs undiscovered? I think we had one pop up here on WaltherForums.... once... here in the U.S.

James,
we do not know where most Einsatzgruppen PPKs went after WWII. Maybe many were destroyed or lost ... Best wishes, Dieter.

Tom Whiteman at Legacy maintains an Orphan Numbered PP/PPK List, but there are no RSHA mags in the 258xxxK range listed on the copy I have.
