A few photos from my Walther collection of a consecutive serial number set of Walther PPK 7,65mm pistols. These two examples were produced 100% in Ulm, Germany. Examples are without import mark. A desirable feature for a collectable. Ulm PPK production falls within the 8K serial number range. The proof marks on these two PPK are AA. Examples were most likely produced circa mid 1990's or late 1990's. Then proofed in 2000 for disbursement to the commercial market. This would be typical since demand for Ulm produced PP/ PPK was rather flat due to import restrictions and also the high number of French/ German models readily available. The finish on these pistols is a satin blue. Disbursement is in plastic black box, reserve magazine, manual, test target, and cleaning stick.

No wonder! Made after the Interarms contract ended. But a rare bird in the US.

Martin, yes the PPK in 7,65mm in the 8K serial range is very scarce in the U.S. I have been offered multiple times 9mm kurz PPK that were produced in Ulm. Have declined them since the 7,65mm guns in either PP/ PPK really interest me.

Did you perhaps acquire them from Earl Sheehan?

Just curious:

Is the lower support for the hammer spring a removable stamped-metal part as in the Manurhin/Walther guns, or is it a buttress cast integral with the frame?

It is the same as found on the Manurhin/ Walther produced guns.

It's a quite near 'derivate' of the Manurhin PPK. For example the chamfer above trigger guard is missing.

Nice guns. I'm missing something; how did these examples dodge the GCA'68?
