Hi all,

So I cracked last month and bought another Walther. A Ulm PP, made in 1986, with the Walther century marking, that adds to my Manurhin 1954 PPK and Zella-Mehlis 1940 PP. I was looking for a shooter as the Manurhin and ZM are collectors, by my standarts at least.

This one is interesting too as it belongs to the first PPs completely made in Ulm. Before, the German just assembled french made parts. Finish is good but shows a lot of good holster wear. Sights are of the enhanced, "i" marked, type. The trigger is typical Walther, short but heavy in DA, with a very short reset. Very efficient after some accustomising...

I paid 300 francs (200 $) with a nice "Anuschat" holster - you know, these small leather pouches with a flap that the German polices used for 50 years.

Recently I shot it against my SIG P230 and it won hands up in terms of accuracy and rapidity. I tend more and more to sell the SIG and buy a Walther PP Super as I find the design very attractive. And it is the ultimate PP!

Bye.

Hello Uncut,

Thank you for your interest. Problem is that my fitting is much more developped in guns than in PC and camera and I don't mention competences...

Let me just say that the ZM PP is a real jewel: NIB, with the original box, the small metal case with a plastic oil bottle and Walther fabric patch, a metal blank round, a cleaning rod and a 25 rounds box marked "Glaser Waffen 100 Jahre 1841-1941". All genuine.

Bye.

Hello Laurent,
Good to read about you again. If anything, let me encourage you about purchasing a PP Super. My all-time favorite. Because of your location, you Sir, are one of the fortunate ones that can readily obtain Hirtenberger(Hirtenberg) 9x18 Ultra (Police) ammo. This round is nowhere to be found commercially here in the US now. You should also have access to an endless supply of Geco 9x18 Ultra ammo. Not to mention Fiocchi.

Of course, you can also purchase one of this model, http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/350601935/m/863104294
I have one, sweet shooter! You should be able to find one in the home country.

And if 9x18U ammo becomes intolerably expensive, it will also accept, without harm, .380 acp ammo. Btw, sold my P5 sometime ago. Actually, the only Walther I have left is the PP Super, and it is definitely going nowhere.

Hi Jehzsa,

Thank you for the infos. Glad to learn that a PP Super can shoot 9 x 17 ammo. A cheap alternative for training.

Bye.

Hello Laurent,
The information came from Mr. Orv Reichert, owner of p38forum.com.

This is what he posted,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A buddy in Australia reported many years ago that these pistols had been imported onto Oz with a bunch of ammo about 22 years back.

The folks in Oz found out that they worked just fine with the standard .380 (9mmK) and the sales of the very expensive Ultra ammo plunged.

I cannot verify this but the source is a very knowledgable dealer in rare autoloaders."
