Walther PPK
Calibre 7.65mm
Serial No: 530707
Price: £350

Almost Mint Condition

The Walther PPK, a smaller version of the PP with a shorter grip, barrel and frame, and reduced magazine capacity.
A new, two-piece wrap-around grip panel construction was used to conceal the exposed back strap.
The smaller size made it more concealable than the original PP and hence better suited to plainclothes or undercover work. It was released in 1930.
PPK is an abbreviation for Polizeipistole Kurz (Police Pistol Short), "kurz" referring to the police Pistol with a shorter barrel and frame
Walther's original factory was located in Zella-Mehlis in the "Land" (state) of Thuringia.

After the war, production of the PP and PPK pistols was resumed in France by Manurhin under German licence.
Later on, production was returned to the re-established Walther factory in the city of Ulm.
