My grandfather recently gave me what appears to be a 1944 Walther PP (based on serial number 347989P). It has acceptance markings WaA359. It has off-white grips that I'm told are original to the gun and are about equally weathered. This gun was given to him by a hoarder, so I don't have much provenance info.

I had read that late war era PPs had whatever grips that happened to be laying around installed on them, but I've also read that there are a lot of aftermarket white grips installed on these guns.

Does anyone have any additional information that might be helpful?

The grips may be original but it looks like they were painted at some point.

Like Redcat I think these were plain old standard grips that someone painted white a long time ago. There are some white plastic grips, but those wouldn鈥檛 show black where the paint is rubbing or flaking off as on yours. Impossible to say where and when that was done.
