Hi,

I would like to know if the Portuguese army (including GNR) used de PP or PPK? The civil police used them, but the military?

Do the Portuguese use the triangle inside a circle as the only mark on their P1 pistols, or did they have other markings as well?

Has the Legacy Collectibles book on the Walther pistols a Portuguese section?

Welcome to the forum.

Dieter Marschall's book doesn't mention Portuguese Army use of the PP/PPK but that doesn't mean they were never issued. He does have a few paragraphs on the P38/P1.

The Tom Whiteman book only covers the German SS.

Do you have any evidence of Portuguese military use of the PP/PPK?

The female member of the GNR has a Walther PP. Am I right?
It's hard to tell. It has the shape of either a PP or a clone. I see a bump on the bottom of the frame which looks like it could either be a lanyard ring or a heel magazine release.

Do you recognize which agency this is? You could contact them directly and inquire about what sidearms were issued.

She has the same coat as her colleague and he has a GNR emblem on his left arm. The Portuguese used the Luger, but that holster covers the whole pistol. It's not a P38, because that has a flat magazine underside. This magazine looks like it has the extended part of the PP magazine. So PP?
