I also immediately thought M-1 rifle. LoL, when I see "P-38" I sometimes still first think of a can opener.

Most PPS M1's will have holster wear because they have been carried. Expect this. If you're seeing condition issues beyond holster wear, then take a deeper look.

At $325 for the pistol with 4 mags, it's a decent enough deal, as the mags, today, are hard to find and they were always spendy.

If you're so-inclined due to acceptable condition/wear, offer $300 cash plus tax for it. That's a decent enough deal for you given the 4 mags, and your LGS may bite.

Sorry. It WAS $375. Offered $325 (no box, no extra backstraps). Consignment,

BD=13

I see plenty of mags for decent prices.

Walther USA fixed it for free, sent it back with a free mag, patch, and couple other little goodies. Took em what..about a month or so, IIRC.

Been stupidly flawless since. Would buy another, and plan to, soon, while there are still cheap (300 dollar range or thereabouts) PPS Classics out there...

I've also got one in .40. Never had a lick of trouble.

One thing to check for...the guide rod/RSA. Mine warped on my 9mm. Not an issue, as I have a DPM kit for it. Just something to check out on a possibly higher mileage unit.

Trigger didn’t reset?

Does Walther sell back straps? They aren’t on the site. Thanks.

Brian, what I do is look up the part numbers for the parts I want, call Walther and give em' the part numbers. I'd suggest doing the same. They'll either have it or they won't. If they don't, you can always give Earl a call.

Oh, and since the trigger doesn't reset, offer em' $250 for a gun that doesn't work.

The trigger resets on this used gun. I was replying to the post above that had a “trigger reset problem”. I was asking what the problem was.

If Walter doesn’t carry spare back straps on a gun that needs them to fire, this may be a clue to me about the classics future.

They actually had 2. The other had box, Truglos and 2 mags.

BUT it was a 09, and even though it looked a tad better and had better NS, I liked the barrel fit on this one and starting with more mags, etc.

Less than $350 OTD.

Might order the small BS from Walther and pick up some 7 rounders.

The Tru Dot NS work pretty well actually. I really like the looks. Goes with my P99s.
