Different KKM triggers and firing pins

I did not find a better place than here to post this, so if the moderators find a better place, please move it.

Over the years the Walther KKM came with three different triggers ( that I am aware of). The first version was borrowed from the readily available KKJ design in 1953/54. That trigger needed improvement for competition shooting and match triggers with more adjustments were quickly developped.
Those different KKM triggers use different firing pins and the receivers have differently shaped openings for the triggers, so they do not interchange.

They are off a KKM with serial # 016478 and #61624. The upper parts in each photo are off # 61624.

Walther SN question--

I "think" the Walther I have is a KKM, but am not sure. Serial number is 01xx37. It has no letters or what would appear to be a date associated with that set of number. Anyone have any idea what the manufacture date might be?

I just acquired a KKJ today at a local pawn shop.

Going off the serial number data provided here I believe it was manufactured in 1958. The SN is 376xx with no letter prefix.

It came with one magazine, has a leather sling and a leather trimmed canvas scabbard. The scabbard and sling look to be of the same period as the rifle. This rifle is in near mint condition. The only mark is a little bluing wear on the rear of the bolt. Looking at the magazine, bolt face, and chamber it doesn't look like it has ever been fired.

Thanks to all the great info posted here I think I've got a real gem.

You are off to a great start: First post and a very nice gun. It shows that some real finds are out there for those who are patient and alert.

It would be interesting to know what part of the country you're in, and the approximate price paid.

Nice catch. If you're interested in getting the front sight hood for it, try Earl's Repair Service in VA. My KKJ came through with it intact but it was bent into an oblong shape. Earl was able to supply a reasonably priced new one.

That would be a first.

Might one inquire what was considered a reasonable price?

I'm in Washington State. Found the rifle in a pawn shop in Wenatchee. I got the Walter as part of a bundle along with a CZ 452-2e Ultra lux with the 28" barrel. I got them both for $1,000. I think any way you slice it I got a good deal.
