Our Assessment: This is a West German manufactured Walther PPK chambered for .380 ACP (9mm short/kurz). Walther’s PP series has had an interesting and circuitous production history, being made in Germany, France, America, and back to Germany. This pistol is a 1967 vintage West German made PPK in Excellent condition. It was made just before the United States import regulations restricted the PPK, leading to the introduction of the import-friendly PPK/s. The pistol shows light operational and handling wear, the bore is bright with sharp rifling and no erosion. If you want a small pistol for concealed carry or if you have small hands that won’t fit around a grip with a double stack magazine, this is a quality pistol that is great for concealed carry. It’s also in good enough condition that it would make a nice addition for a Walther collector who would like a post-war German made PPK, especially with its original box. Please see our photos and good luck!
