I recently purchased a WWII PP from an online dealer. After the first range session I field stripped for cleaning. When I did the ejector fell off as the spring holding it inwas broken. Lucky for me that there's an authorized Walther repair shop just a few miles from where I live. http://www.carlwalther.com/page1.htm


Earl stripped the gun down in front on me and said that 6 parts needed to be replaced, 3 springs, extractor, 2 pins. 10 mins. later I was on my way home.

I can't complain to the dealer who sold me the gun as his selling 'policy' is in part, "..buyer understands that all merchandise is sold solely as collector's items, and is not warranted as functionally sound or safe...".

So..........Caveat emptor!

You are lucky to live so close to Earl!!!

You have the right attitude, but remember that anytime you buy a gun that is from 60 to 75 years old, it may be a bit tired in spots. Next time I would have a through check of the piece before you run it out to the range.
