Auction: Walther PPK Nazi Era 7,65mm
Now up for auction: a somewhat scarce WWII German handgun. This Walther PPK was manufactured later during WWII and is unique in that it utilizes a lightweight “Dural” aluminum alloy frame. NOTE: Auction ends May 1, 2011. Chambered for the 7,65mm (.32 ACP), this pistol is properly matching, and is NOT import marked. The right side of the slide, chamber and tip of barrel have the Nazi Eagle/N test proofs. Overall condition is very good with the usual fading of the anodized finish on the frame. The slide shows general thinning and some fine pitting near the muzzle and left rear. The original black 1-piece grips are in good condition but do have one crack at the top of the back strap and a small chip beneath the safety lever. The mechanics are in good working order and the bore is excellent with bright, sharp rifling. A popular and reliable pistol, this PPK would be especially easy to carry weighing in at less than 17-ounces.
Auction: Walther Model 9
Now on auction: a Walther Model 9, one of the smallest commercially successful pistols ever made! NOTE: Auction ends May 1, 2011. Similar in many ways to the Browning Vest Pocket, this pistol is chambered for 6,35mm (.25 ACP). It remains in very good mechanical condition however the bore is frosted throughout. This pistol carries Czech proof markings which indicate it was the 932nd pistol to be proofed in 1927. It has been renickled and retains about 95% bright finish with some dark areas in the cocking serrations. The grips are excellent, free of cracks or chips. There are no import markings and the slide is serial numbered to the frame. A tiny little pistol that weighs just 9-ounces in spite of all steel construction.
