Been looking at PPK/PPK/S and discovered that at some point Interams/Ranger changed the nose. From my reading this is a time consuming and expensive part of the manufacturing. I am guessing this happened late in the Ranger series manufacturing.

Look at this picture from one thats on Gunbroker right now. This nose is very similar to the way the current ones are made. Notice that the rounding across the bottom of the front is gone.

And here is a German made one.

My Ranger made in USA PPK/S from circa 1981 has the rounded nose, like the German one. My PPK from circa 1995 (I believe) has the abrupt ending, like the one in the first photograph. Without this thread, I would have never known!
