I already posted some pics that the dealer sent me, but here are some more....
german PPK, but on the right side of the slide it says interarms.....weird..........any one care to explain this? i beleive the dealer said it was a 1964ish one...
Interesting it actually says 69...............thought they stopped importing them in 68?.
anyway, the WEIRDEST thing happened.
I had ordered a High Noon Hidden Ally holster for the gun last friday.
I have been expecting this gun for a few days now, i expected it monday, and i have been calling my local FFL 3 or 4 times a day since then, here it is wednesday.....the gun finally arrived! so i took it home cleaned it well, took it all apart, gave it a good clean.......
i just wrapped it in an old cloth and stuck it in my range bag and walked out the door to go to the range. I thought to myself "oh well maybe that holster will be in soon". i got in my car, started it, and as i was about to back out, i looked in my rear view mirror and the UPS man pulled up!!! sure enough, he had my holster........so i got to WEAR the PPK to the range on its first trip.,
It did fairly well, i shot a mixture of FML ball ammo (UMC from walmart) and i shot a few speer Gold Dots.
i had two failures to eject with the UMC and one hammer fall with no fire. the Speers were flawless, but i didnt shoot THAT many............
here are a few pics to show off this High Noon holster, the first pic is the holster in the "tucked" mode........can you see it?
yes its the same one. I zoomed in on the pic he sent me and the serial numbers match.
Ill have to scan a pic of that symbol under the serial number by the tigger guard. it looks like it was stamped with something and then stamped OVER again....rather odd looking.
Also something you cant tell in the pic he sent me is all the lettering and serial numbers on the right side of the gun are yellow (white) filled..... is that normal?
I'd be curious as to how this got into the country where it is a 1969 vintage. Maybe a cop bought it.
I've seen PPK with the lettering filled in. I'm not sure if the owner did it or someone else. In your case it almost looks like the importer, Interarms, did it. The only reason I say that is because only the serial number and the importer are highlighted. Why not the Walther banner on the other side???
Yes, its an excellent find. I can't remember how much you paid for it, but to find a German/(French) made PPK is always a great thing. In fact I'd be hesitant to even put it in that holster and wear it around. I'd rather keep it in as good as condition as I could. Just my opinion. On the other hand what good is a gun if you can't shoot it? I've currently got 2 Walther's that I won't shoot and 1 that I shoot very rarely. And I've got my PPK which I haven't shot at all, although I probably will someday.
