The year the pistol was made was stamped on the barrel inside the ejection port. If you can't see it clearly with the slide on, remove the slide and VOILA!
your search will be rewarded!!!

the above only applies to post war Walther's...
if you have a pre war or war time PPK go to www.p38forum.com and ask your question is that Forum. Dieter Marschall (from Germany) and a few others have a huge data base and they can sometimes pinpoint to the month and not just the year. The entire serial # will be asked though.....

ppk-32-acp

hi. i looked for my dad, and there it was 67 on the bl, plain as day. i think he only shot it maybe 4 times,not even a box of ammo.he got it while he was in german. a while back he had a water pipe break, and he was at my house all day,when he got home, it looked like a lake,he took it hard, lost most of the gun boxs ,cleaning kits that he never used. about 46 years of his life go in 1 day. thanks for the help. every one have a safe and nice day.

I do not believe that this holds true for the Interarms units does it?

I do not see any marks on mine except for the "N" or "W"-- not sure I do not have it with me. What does that stand for?

guns54 - thanks for the feedback on the sad lesson you dad learned with the house flood. I've been looking at a lot for forums lately reading about buying a new safe and many members member have mentioned about placing your safe up off the floor in case of floods.

Regards to all~Photo

You are correct.... info for the PPK only
.380ACP SS prefix "A"
.380ACP blued prefix "K"
.32ACP SS prefix "B"

I am not sure on the different prefixes for the PPK/S
