Hello!

Recently I have bought a Walther PPK 7.65mm Zella Mehlis (Thür). It's date manufacture in 1943 due to the serial number and RSHA markings.
The grips on gun are solid black original from bakelite, but I would desperately like to change them with wood imitation brown ones that were most common during that WWII era.

I have spoken with one guy who is selling reproduction grips that if I buy the grips that are reproduction and made from cast phenolic resin they will break during shooting with the gun.

The question for you guys is, do you really think that the reproduction grips will break during shooting? Does any of you have any experience with changing grips and then shooting normally with the gun?

I would really like to change them but at the same time I don't want to spend too much money on this, because I have seen that original grips can be arround 250,00 eur or even more. At the same time, even the reproduction ones are arround 50,00 - 60,00 eur and I wouldn't like to buy them and then get them broke during shooting with the gun.

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards from Slovenia!

The grips I have in mind:
