When did Walther move to the magazine with the crimp down the side? Why did they change from the original? Are they still made that way? Are these Walthers worth less? Thanks in advance to whoever replies- M

'the crimp down the side', it sounds like you are referring to the line on the side of the postwar .380/9mmK PP series. I believe this allows a tab on the follower to rise and push against the hold-back lever on the models in this caliber. Better informed members will correct me, please!

Understand the question the same way. The 'crimp' was introduced to differentiate between 7,65mm (.32) and 9mm kurz (.380) on post war magazines.

And the corresponding magwell has a rib to fit that groove, at least on the imported examples.
