Our Assessment: This is a stainless-steel Model PPK/S pistol made by Interarms under license of Walther. After WWII, Walther had Manurhin make parts for their PP and PPK pistols that Walther then finished, stamped with the Walther name and assembled. Manurhin also made pistols under their own name for sale in the United States until the GCA of 1968. In 1978, Walther licensed Interarms to make pistols for them, and this is a PPK/S from that production period. The pistol is chambered in .380 ACP and comes with a total of three stainless-steel Walther magazines. This pistol is in about Fine Plus condition showing some signs of use but none of abuse. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and no erosion. This is going to make someone a very nice pistol for concealed carry that can also be used for home protection. The PPK pistols are known to be reliable, and the stainless-steel finish on this one will hold-up to handling as well as the elements. Please see our photos and good luck!
