I recently scored one of my grail pieces, a LNIB 1967 7.65mm PPK. In the box, along with the manual,test target, and spare magazine was a small tool stamped out of sheet metal. It has two small prongs on one end and is rounded on the other. Maybe an inch and a quarter long by 3/16 or 1/4 inch at the widest. My first thought was a sight adjustment tool of some sort, but why would such a tool be in a box with a fixed sighted PPK?

Thanks for the knowledge!

It's mostly of interest to collectors who insist on having all the doodads that originally came in the box.

The tool is indeed intended for disassembling the signal pin, but it's too soft and fragile for serious use. A jeweler's screwdriver or dental pick works better.

AfaIk the 'Olive fork' was an accessory until Walther changed the firing pin design early 70'. As Mike mentioned, not useless but needless.

Never got any pinch like that, but do we know what you've experienced in your life? - We do not...
