Just curious.

On a 20 year old Interarms blued ppk, how pronounced should the markings be on the slide?

Are they deep enough to feel them solidly when you run your finger over them?

Are they filled with a brighter color?

Thanks

As I recall they are nicely roll marked on all the Interarms made pistols from the late 1980's. Later German made pistols were roll marked too.

You should be able to clearly read them, I never tried "feeling" them.

The only marks "painted in" would be the red dot under the safety lever.

Dep-

When I get up late at night, I sit in the dark with the P99 and dream of Eva Green and NOT rolling a Aston Martin DBS.

I hold the PPK while watching "From Russia with Love". Usually there is enough light to still see the PPK and read the lettering (with glasses that is).

:cool:

Sean Connery IS James Bond. After he stopped playing the role I lost interest in the movies. Too much gimmicky crap and they veered too far from the books. And evey time I got used to a new Bond, they changed him. I HATED The Saint/Roger Moore. Timothy Dalton I got used to after a couple of movies. And them I got used to Pierce Brosnan and they changed him to this new goof. BTW...the new James Bond is STRONGLY anti-gun :mad:

Bond is a pussy galore when it comes to guns

Shaken: New Bond hates handguns
More detailed results »

Daniel Craig will have a problem playing the new James Bond - because he hates guns.

The actor will wield 007's famous Walther PPK in the movie Casino Royale.

But he revealed in OK! magazine: "I hate handguns. Handguns are used to shoot people and as long as they are around, people will shoot each other.

"That's a simple fact. I've seen a bullet wound and it was a mess. It was on a shoot and it scared me. Bullets have a nasty habit of finding their target and that's what's scary about them."

Martini mix-up

Nor does the 37-year-old share Bond's love of Martinis shaken and stirred.

"I love a Martini straight up. I don't think anybody makes a Martini stirred any more," he said.

Craig was unveiled earlier this month as the successor to Pierce Brosnan.

He will play a tougher, grittier 007 in Casino Royale, which is based on Ian Fleming's first Bond book.

The movie is due for release in November next year.

Craig is not the first Bond to reveal a hatred of guns.

Roger Moore, who played the superspy from 1973 to 1985, said after quitting the role that he hated "that awful pose" of Bond with his gun which has become an iconic movie image.

The actor later became an ambassador for children's charity Unicef and declared: "Today I am completely opposed to small arms and what they can do to children. I played every role tongue-in-cheek because I don't really believe in that sort of hero. I don't like guns."

Excuse me while I barf. How can they pick a nitwit like this Craig guy as the new Bond??? Oh yeah...it gets MUCH worse in the next film...

Daniel Craig will have a male love interest in the next Bond movie.
Posted in: Entertainment — PR-inside Entertainment News @ 2:55 pm
The British actor has attracted a large gay following after sharing an onscreen kiss with another man in his latest movie ‘Infamous’, and film bosses are keen to capitalise on this new status.
‘Infamous’ documents the life of author Truman Capote. In the movie, Craig plays convicted killer Perry Smith who has a relationship with Capote, played by British actor Toby Jones.
‘Bond 22′ - the follow-up to Craig’s debut 007 movie ‘Casino Royale’, which is due to be released in November - will now see a homoerotic relationship develop between the suave spy and secret agent Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright.
A film insider said: "Bond will always be a hit with the ladies. But Daniel has a massive gay fan base and that can’t be ignored.
"There will still be sexy Bond Girls. But the modern Bond will be more sensitive." Craig has already been heavily criticised by some Bond fans unhappy at his casting in the role and this latest news seems certain to cause more furore.
The 38-year-old star was previously lambasted for wearing a lifejacket on the speedboat journey to his first Bond press conference, his confession that he hates guns, his alleged inability to drive a manual car and for reportedly losing two teeth in his first fight scene.

yuck!!! :(

Before they picked this a-hole for Bond, there was a big movement among the fan base to have Adrian Paul (from The Highlander TV series) as the new Bond. That would have been AWESOME!. And he WANTED the role too!!! ACK. I wonder what goof picked this new moron???

Dep,

That is indeed disgusting news. Happily it is all made up c**p!!! You should give the new Bond a "go see", its really quite a good movie. My "signature" is from the lyrics in the title song!

It doesn't bother me that Craig says he is anti-gun. He is a Brit, and free to ruin the UK with his opinion. I was amused to read that when he did some weapons training for Bond, he enjoyed shooting and "got into it"!!! It helps reinforce my belief that anti-gun people simply do not understand or have zero firearms expierence. They are too ignorant to know better.

As the article pointed out almost ALL Bond actors are vocal anti-gunners. To my knowledge only Dalton has not expressed anti-gun philosophy.

Old Sean Connery is the worst of all though, he provided TV commercials after the Dunblaine shootings advocating gun confiscation!!! The commercials showed a human target being cut to pieces by bullets, then Connery in his deep James Bond voice says "Is this more fun than watching your children grow up?"

Of course they are all hypocrites!!! Without firearms/action movies these guys would be dancing in a chorus, waiting tables or polishing doorknobs.

On the plus side, their absolute lack of principle in the desire to earn the big bread has inspired countless folks to get a gun and learn to shoot!!!! It was old oo7 that peaked my interest in Walther pistols, an interest that was rewarded many times over and turned me into a real second amendment supporter.

So let Craig and Connery wallow in their ill-gotton gains and may they continue to inspire more and more interest in firearms and shooting. Heck with enemies like them - we almost don't need friends! ;)

ok you can go ahead and have some fun at my expense--- however-- I guess that I am not "knowledgeable" enough about guns to know if I can tell the difference between etched and roll marked.

Thanks

Interarms American-made Walthers were always roll-marked, just like the original German guns. Roll-marked inscriptions are sharp and clear, as they are impressed into the steel with a die. If they are fuzzy, it's because buffing preparatory to a re-blue has washed them out. Sometimes they may appear to be light or uneven (deeper on one side or end than on the other); this is usually a result of a slight misalignment of the work piece in the roll-die fixture.

Acid-edged markings are less distinct because metal is chemically removed to form the characters. They are also usually much shallower, as the process is difficult to control as the depth increases. Laser marking --such as that now used on S&W-made guns-- can be adjusted, but for production economy tends to be very shallow, sometimes little more than a burn mark on the surface.

Look at markings under magnification, and with a little practice you can readily distinguish the method used. A very handy tool is a 10X Hastings glass available from Edmonds Optical; it's also the recognized standard for grading gems: a flaw that can't be seen at 10X doesn't exist for the purposes of appraisal.
