Hi, I'm from México and last week, I bought a Walther PPK .380 ACP but I can't find much information.
I think maybe it's rare. It's like the "PDM" or the "RZM", with the "N" and the crown and magazine release buton on botom but it's completely of steel, no aluminium.
Has the #1 on the frame.
The recoil spring is a little longer than normal, like the spring of a Walther PP.
The gun works fine, 6 rounds, no jams.
The grips are of wood, mexican made.
I can't find any other completely of steel in the internet.

I would like to know from the experts here if it's rare or if there are more steel made like this or some history or the name of this model, etc...
Thanks in advance...

Hello,

You obviously have a "normal" Zella-Mehlis PPK in calibre .380 (fourth variation). Most of the PPKs were made in steel/steel. Some were made in "Dural"/steel.

What is the serial number of this PPK?

Best wishes,
Dieter H. Marschall.

Thanks for your information.
The serial number is: 869046. Can you help me with the year of manufacture?
And yes, it's a Zella-Mehlis PPK.
It was re-blued by some owner before me and the words are blurred but I can know what was there by seen other pics found on internet.
In the slide are the words: Waffenfabrik Walther, Zella-Mehlis (Thur).
Down are: Walther's Patent Cal. 9 m/m. And beside are: Mod PPK.
Greetings.

Probably made in 1936.

PS: Grips are very special (home made?).

Thank you for the info Martin, so maybe this year is 80 years old, hmm, not bad for a "beauty lady"...

The grips are from a grips maker in my home town: Puebla city.
He sales his grips in a cartridge depot or sports store (I don't know how to call it) in city downtown but he did a terrible checkered so I sand it and applied some oil for cars, 100% synthetic Akron brand, the same I use for clean my guns.

Well, so thank you again and any other information are very welcome.

Wow!, a great collection, congratulations!.
Here, we have calibre restrictions. For semi automatic pistols, we can only have a .380 ACP and for a revolver, the .38 Spl.
I have seen some PK380 for sale around here but I never held one :( but some day, I hope to...
What other calibres are the other Walthers (beside the PK380)?.
