Walther ppk dating

Rated 4.48/5 based on 951 customer reviews

For the record, I carry my PPK regularly when I need a small concealment pistol, which means that I consider my stainless PPK reliable, but to get it there took some work and some precautions.The Walther produced PPK is very tight, especially the stainless model, and really starts to shine after running a hundred or so rounds through the gun.The Walther Polizei Pistole Kurz (Short Police Pistol) is a small-frame semi-automatic pistol chambered in .380 ACP and .32 ACP.It was originally designed in Germany in 1935 as a concealed carry pistol, but is now manufactured by Smith & Wesson, one of the largest handgun manufacturers in the US.

I once owned one of the commercial, pre-war and pre-Nazi pistols with the 90-degree safety lever in brightly polished blue finish, in the then usual 7.65mm / .32ACP caliber that all WWII pistols were chambered in, as well as several postwar examples.Primarily, the rear grip frame strap was removed and replaced by a single-piece wraparound checkered plastic grip to further lighten the pistol.Its shorter butt also reduced the magazine capacity by one round from the PP for each caliber as a result.One of the first successful DA/SA pistols in history, the PP-series found service with militaries and police agencies around the globe and gained quite the following on the civilian market that continues to this day.The PPK/S is arguably the most popular variant of the PP-series in the United States, but Walther never originally intended for the PPK/S to be produced.
