I am looking for 1-3 backstraps (I'm not sure if they made these in all three sizes or not?) marked "Transponder" on the back. I know this atirred some controversy and Walther has since eliminated the marking.

Someone kindly offered to trade, but I'd prefer to buy them outright.

In all honesty, I don't. I could see someone arguing they're rare now, while I also remember reading a couple posts where people were so disenfranchised with them, they were practically giving them away...

What do you think, imaoldfart?

I really don't have any idea. I was just wondering, cuz if you said $100 or something, I figured that'd probably make me get up out of my recliner and start scratchin' around in my parts bin. I'm just kidding, but I did go back and look.....sure thought I had some....but if I did/do I'm not finding them.

LOL!! Thanks, I needed a laugh! :D

If anyone, I figured you would have a price idea...

Perhaps "fair" would be whatever it would cost to get replacement backstraps?

Maybe I'll call Ft. Smith on Monday...

I'll sell you mine.

What will I charge?

Your NON transponder 'straps. :D

In other words, a trade? Pay shipping both ways and call 'er good?

And, here is the kind guy who offered a trade!

Let me call Ft. Smith Monday, T-bird. If they do not have a box of "turn-ins" they're trying to figure out what to do with, I'll order a set of new backstraps and send them to you for the trade.

Are all 3 sizes marked with "Transponder"?

Thanks buddy!

So, what do you think about a 3-way? I found a set of three PPQ standard back straps....they look as good as new to me...I even put my glasses on to look at em'. I can send these to T-bird and if they're acceptable, he can send his transponder equipped straps to you.

I'll pay the shipping....shouldn't be but a couple of bucks.

If T-bird is good with the deal, I'll send a group PM and we can share contact info.

I think negotiations have been satisfactory :D

Yeah, all of mine are marked transponder or whatever the wording is exactly. :)

What a success!

Imaoldfart got the moolah I sent.
T-Bird got Imaoldfart's backstraps.
I got T-Bird's Transponder-marked straps.

As frequently happens in the world of firearms enthusiasts; we are a trustworthy lot. This 3-way deal came together and was completed in just over a week with no issues.

Thanks guys!
