David: Clearly you haven't taken a good gander at this high-quality offering:There's no way I'd pay that much money for a PPK. That's just me though~
Lol... I stand corrected.David: Clearly you haven't taken a good gander at this high-quality offering:
Condition and originality are everything. A knowledgable buyer might pay more than that for a Zella-Mehlis PPK in really nice (95% or better) original condition. But when the condition falls to 80%, the value takes a huge tumble, and in that price zone it goes begging. Clean examples aren't THAT scarce.My local gun shop has this PPK, about 80% blue, bore shiny and unpitted. Brown grips, all matching numbers including magazine. 7.65mm. He's asking $1250.
Whaddya think ? Too much ?? Bargain ??
For those of you haven't already done so, you might want to take a look sometime at the Walther forum that specializes in P38s and PP/PPKs:Thanks all for the responses. Have been able now to look again at this.
s/n is inscribed inside slide and matches with frame as does the magazine.
s/n 325511 K, eagle proof. Grips intact.
As suggested I'm also posting this info on the P38 forum.
Appreciate every response - most helpful as usual.
