well, laid out some cash for a shooter pre-war ppk.

buffed, blued, wood grips and gold accents - yuck. but, a good shooter.

going to replace the hammer and trigger for blued models.

thought about selling the mags, trigger and hammer to recoup some money and send the originals to someone who might need them. what are the mags worth? i know the hammer and trigger are up in the air as to price.

thoughts? de-plate trigger and hammer? and whats with native american heads on the grips?

Just to add: Grips are Sile made post war replacements, used by Indian Arms (John Perlotto). Mag extension is broken.

And I'm from Germany, no idea about any value.

OK, Indian Arms (70's, USA) made some not really legaliced copys of the PPK w. a different slide. He (Perlotto) called it P.380.
Sile was OEM for Walther wooden grips in the 70's. These grips were equiped with the 'native american heads ' and used by Indian Arms.

Are you certain it's a pre-war PPK? And you say it's a shooter...how many rounds, roughly, have you been able to shoot through it so far? Any issues?

well, s/n is 190884k and the charts say that is 1939 manufacture. also, you can just make out zellis (sp?) on the slide.

i put about 75 rounds of ball ammo through it yesterday with the mags seen. no FTF or stovepipes.

i am new to this (walthers), so educate me if i am incorrect.

I agree, it's probably a 1939 made PPK acc. to the serial number. But as the slide is as buffed as it is, what could we notice? Perhaps or maybe... It's what it is.

It may be refinished, although that is fine, for a shooter. It looks like that to we.
