Walther ppk serial number dating
I realize there is an element of subjectivity to this but you appear to be very knowledgeable about these pistols (about which i have admitted i know very little).
What resources (internet and books) are out there that might help me improve my knowledge of these pistols since i am about to be the owner of one?
Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential for causing injury and we ask that you stop using your pistol immediately.
To facilitate the repair of your pistol please contact customer service to receive instructions.
Walther's produced after the war are either marked as being made by Manurhin in France, or at Ulm, Germany.
So, if it's got an "ac" code and no other marks on the slide..... Walther stopped using their commercial markings on the PP late in the war (late 1944 I've been told) and went to the 'ac' marking to help speed production, along with other short cuts along the way.
Please contact Walther Arms via phone (479) 242-8500 or email us using the Contact Us form if your PPK or PPK/S serial number is within the range of recalled guns.
Regards and many thanks again, Crow Much obliged for your response.
Any significance to the fact it was made before 1941 and that it has no other mark?
Upon receipt of your pistol, we will replace the existing hammer block with a new part at no cost to you.
Your firearm will be returned as quickly and efficiently as possible.Walther's with the "ac" code were produced ONLY during WWII from "about" 1942 to Spring 1945.
