While inspecting a Walther PP in chrome, I found this stamping on rear of slide.

It is a RFV 9623W made in 1937. My other PP's do not have this.

Best Regards,

Mario

The meaning of the stamp has been lost to time. They also occur on war time P. 38’s as well but their meaning is unknown as well.

Interesting. That's the same stamp used by Walther to indicate "updated/improved parts" on post-war guns, like the P-1 and P-5. It's apparently a stamp they had used earlier? Or, could it be this PP was sent back to Walther for some work, post-war? Just speculating here; not giving a definitive answer...

Colt had a 5 point star stamped on the trigger guard of of the Single Actions that were re-worked at their factory...You may be on to something .

My next step is to field strip it and see if I find anything else.

Best regards,

Mario

Unrelated the Walther pre war and war time runes on the Walther guns.
