    Buddy wants to sell me an import marked Walther PP in 32acp. Pistol is in 85% with one mag, no box or papers. He wants $260. I think this is a great deal any thoughts? Gun is not stolen, my buddy is a Deputy Sheriff.

    I have a pre war commercial walther pp around 1936. Was wondering how to tell the original grips from after market grips. Are there any marks on the backside maybe? Thanks

    I have an opportunity to purchase a Walther PP in 22lr. DOM 1967 and no import marks. Overall excellent++ with the original box and papers. What kind of value does the pistol have? Need to make a reasonable offer within the next few days.

    I have a Walther PP that has no markings at all, no serial no., manufacture, or model. A friend of mine had this pistol that he had gotten from his father. His father told him that he picked up the parts at the end of WWII at the Walther factory. He had enough parts to make two pistols. The parts had no blueing or any stampings of any kind. I know the cal. is 32 and shoots fine. I am wondering does this pistol have any value without any markings. His father did get a serial no. and had it stamped on the grip strap and had it registered.

    Neil is correct.
    This is a late war Walther PP. Late in the war Walther stopped using its' logo on the model PP and PPK. They instead used thier Heerswaffenamt code assigned to them by the Obercommando des Heeres. The code assigned to the Walther firm was "ac". This pistol is marked "ac" indicating as such. However this pistol is mis-matched serial numbers, so therefore value would be much lower. It should have proof markings on it as well. This will either be an "eagle N" or an "eagle 359" or possible even an "eagle C" or "eagle F". The latter 3 of these markings will be located on the frame behind the trigger. The eagle N markings will be located on the right side of the slide, barrel, and frame.

    Anyone ever saw a Walther pp with a # on the front strap , where your fingers rap around the grip? This is not the serial # or part of the serial #. I bought used, with the box, but looks almost new and if its been shot, it was not much. Thanks

    I have a Walther PP limited edition 50th Anniverary special - #308 of 500. It is in original hand carved walnut box and has never been fired. Any idea what it is worth?

    I just received a Walther PP from a family member. He found it on a German officer who was "in no shape to prevent him from taking it" (WW2). Apparently it is the "rare" pre-WWII model with the bottom magazine release. Just wondering how much its actually worth.

    85% is a LOT of wear. I suspect you can pick up a CZ50/70 for $150, in a lot better condition.

    The 80's imports included the box, manual, test target, holster, and 2nd mag for 189.00.

    I think that a little high, and it is still a .32 cal. If I was looking at a CC gun or defense, I would be looking for a .380. .32 is loud, but pretty anemic.
