Do you have a preference of any of the books out there about the Walthers PP?Crow For the value, check Gunbroker, if you register, you can see closed auctions and see what prices were paid.Can someone explain to me if this means the magazine is for a post WW2 Walther .380, PP or PPK perhaps?There is no doubt that it is for a Walther PP or PPK. For everybody's information, the post-WW2 serial #s can be found in Dieter Marschall's book on Walthers.At the War's Closing it is not surprising that some marks were omitted. can't seem to find any links to manufacture dates, etc. steve It might be easier just to sell it to a more informed buyer. It is part of a system that Germany adopted in 1891.Are there any markings on the frame above the trigger under the ejection port? If the guy is to lazy to do his own research and has no idea what he is looking at he will probably come back complaining anyway. According to one book I've read, quite a few "AC" marked PP's were assembled at the end of the war from remaining parts. Crow Hello, i am new to Walther pistols and am buying one with what appears to be a horizontal "N" with something (crown? NAZI government changed the appearance of various marks. If your PP has Crown over N, then it was made before 1941, otherwise it was made after 1941.[QUOTE=lonegunman;1408581]It might be easier just to sell it to a more informed buyer.If anyone knows of a site where this information is available, please let me know. For everybody's information, the post-WW2 serial #s can be found in Dieter Marschall's book on Walthers.I have one more question though: Being new to Walthers i went ahead and bought a magazine for the .380 Walther i bought but have yet to receive.
Crow I had previously asked about a pre-war Walther PP and got invaluable information from the one of the members.Walther's produced before that had commercial markings and the city of manufacture was Zella-Mehlis.Walther's produced after the war are either marked as being made by Manurhin in France, or at Ulm, Germany.attachmentid=334827&d=1279868767 It is important to realize that Walther made PP for a long time, since 1929.If all you have is just the regular Cown N mark, then most likely you have a pistol made for commercial sales. I know a little bit about Walther PP because I own three that were made after WW Two by Manuhrin, France under license from Walther. Your best bet is take some photographs and start your own thread.
