Well guys, I have a chance to buy a 1965 USED(98%) older W.German PPK with box, manual and target.
Gun will be a carry piece, not a collectible.
I really like the gun and in 1965 had a couple at $85.00 each but now at $850, what do you guys think?
That's an excellent price. Usually pieces like that command well over $1K. Curious as to why it's being offered at such a great price, particularly as most were made in .32 ACP caliber, not the rarer .380 caliber like this one.
Definitely get it, but if you're going to carry it, make sure you keep it well oiled. Those older models will rust up on you quickly without oil on their fine finish to protect them.
Well I'd buy it but I don't think I carry much because of value. Its only going up Other thing if you ever used in SD you know were you pistol is headed . I read other day a guy is still trying to get his pistol back. Police have been holding for long time. They claim yes looks like a good shooting NOW but maybe later things might change and we will need pistol. Now this is BS But sure be nice wat for someone to enlarge their collection.:blues: Oh I almost forgot remember the older ones bite the hand ,jam a lot, don,t like hollow points, and have Horrible triggers .Just ask obout a PPK on any gun board.
But people always say buy the German one which wasn't really made in Germany. Go figure.
I was happy with it. Mines also a .32 '67. When I walked into the gun store, the owner said "I just got your pistol in", and he was right, as soon as he handed it to me, I didn't let go of it the whole time I was in the store.
