Welcome to this forum. Thanks to 1917, he brought your 9mmK PP to view and hopefully you can assist in our effort to determine the serial number with the introduction of the newer larger ejector/hold-open part that was introduced for 9mmK pistols. Your pistol was made earlier than the pre-war Persian contract that began at 116xxxP. I must disagree with earlier post on this thread as to the date of manufacture of your pistol. I believe the proofs on the right side of the slide are a crown over N, indicating the pistol was made before January 1940. In the case of your pistol, it was made at least a year or two before. More likely 1938.The photos you found on the WW2 facebook site 1917 were mine and i was looking for any info but as you saw i got no responses. Thank you for re posting them in here to get more info and also messaging me to give me some info. I joined the forum and hope to learn more about this beautiful firearm. So much History behind this gun and it's truly priceless! I came into possession of this gun through my Dad, My grandpa was in the 13th Armored div. in WW2 and was a tank mechanic. They got into a small fire fight taking over an outpost in a german town and happened to take this PP sidearm off a high ranking German officer. There objective was actually to head to Hitler's home town and set up a defensive position at his home and do some intel. So long story short i have this beautiful gun and i also have the original Black leather holster with a (Otto Berlin stamp)
Whoops, I totally misread the serial number. Both charts say 1938.Jan's Chart is in this thread:I still can't figure out that chart. So 152724 P in a 9mmK PP BMR would be '41, '42, '43 or so?
Eureka! Thank you aharlowrn (thats a mouthful) for the detailed photos and description of the action of your prize. And a big thank you to 1917 for finding this older post I had not seen.post continued with the rest of the photo's. Enjoy and let me know what these might tell you Thanks again!
