Try gunsamerica.com they have alot of walthers on this site. German ppk (s) are very hard to locate because they havn't imported them since 1968. There out there but you have to look hard for a clean one. The American ppk in 32 is not a bad gun but, it's not german though.

I have a 1968 German PPK (in 32 ACP) I would sell for $425 + 30 for shipping. The slide has been refinished due some minor pitting (prior to my ownership), frame looks like factory finish. Serial numbers match on frame and slide (except for R suffix on frame, can find no reference to this suffix anywhere). Functions great, comes with two mags.

It is possible, but because the Parkerizing process etches he metal and depth or penetration is dependent upon how long the piece is left in the solution, the etching process may be too deep to polish it out without destroying the roll marks and proofs. Or significantly lightening them.

Either way, you will be able to tell it is a re-blue which is OK if all you want is a shooter or carry gun. It's collector value has already been destroyed.
