Hi guy’s and happy New Years.
I just picked up a Walther PPK and need information about dating, country ...
On the barrel it’s stamped 64 and a eagle N. May be it was manufactured on 1964 ? No information about «*made in country*» Germany ? thanks for help 😊

64 = German date of proof. In most cases it's also the year the gun was made. By the way: Are you sure 64 marked on the barrel? I can't see any barrel thru ejection port. ;)


Magazine extension is not time correct.

Martin is pulling your leg...sort of. ;) That mark is actually on the frame and not the barrel. It is a mistake a lot of people make. Nice looking pistol BTW. 1917

That mark ? Which one ? 64 is on the barrel on mine.
No the mark 64 is on the frame. You can verify it easily by removing the barrel. The 64 will rest on the frame.

By the way, on the barrel (near the muzzle) you'll find its own proof mark.

As a PPK is a blow back pistol, you see the barrel seating thru ejection port, not the barrel itself.

All parts were made by Manurhin and delivered (at least the slide) in the white to Walther. Slide was marked, hardened, blued; parts were fitted, assembled and the gun was proofed by German government in Ulm. So the gun is legal 'Made in Germany'. Believe it or not.
