This PPK has been sitting in a safe for probably a few decades, that’s why it looks new.
Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.
Well "new" is relative to a guy born in the 40's :D

My first Walther love affair began in 1960 when I came into owning a P38/P1 (rebuild) of the historic classic WW II weapon.
My wife would say the that my "affair" with Walther has gone on too long...but I have survived the critique as she does not know that gun safe combination!

Of all the Walther brands I own (or have owned)...I'd say the PPK/s is my favorite, for looks and function!

Thank you for your perspective, very interesting. I received the PPK from my father(1935) and I’ve always been very impressed with it. Very nice to shoot.
Guard that combination! Haha.
Thanks,
Edwin

Stainless Interarms PPK/S .32
Test Target 10/15/1998
Serial Number W006997

I find it interesting that the serial number is only in one place.. behind the trigger guard on the right side, is that normal?

Is there any pre- or postfix (serial number)? For example SN 1262xx A = ~1968/69 (German proof date visible thru ejection port).

Looking in the ejection port on the barrell is 68 and alot of markings like maybe a bird of some sort and a dagon tail?

Does that sound right? So would this be a 68 model gun?

Thanks,

Rbook

It's a German Walther PPK, parts made by Manurhin/France. Eagle/N = German proof mark, antler = Ulm proof house. 68 = 1968. Imported by Interarms, but not a Ranger/USA made gun.

Does the slide have "Interarms Alexandria Virginia" on the right side of the slide?

Another question...
Is it a PPK or PPK/S?
The gun control act of 1968 stopped import of the PPK, and thus the PPK/S was invented, but I thought 1969 was the first year of import for the PPK/S. Maybe the experts here can clear that up.

So, either that is the last of the old PPK imports, or the first of the PPK/S, I suppose.

Ok, so you got one of the last legally imported PPK models made in Germany.

Sorry for all the posts. My brain just got flooded with questions, because I am looking at some PPKs in this date range and trying to decide which one(s) to buy. I would pay extra for one of the pre 1968 GCA models like yours.
Around here that would fetch at least $650 if it's in very good condition.

Full disclosure I am a PPK rookie collector/owner just recently addicted to them, and not an expert in estimating value or anything else, lol.
