Finish a liitle rough but nearly no pitting. Mechanically mint. I can't wait to shoot it.
I been wanting another ppk and the rzm is pretty cool with it's history.
Awesome. Dog approved.
Very, very nice, Narkcop! I am jealous! And I thought my very clean 1968 no import stamp PPK was nice.
BtW, I see your Dog is pulling Security Overwatch for you. Needless to say due to the expensive PPK you have in your hand!
Tell him/her "Good Job!"
Oh, and I missed this: it's an early 90' safety model. Makes your PPK even rarer, IIRC!
Shoot it if you must(I wouldn't!), then clean it well, and lubricate it well. Store it where no humidity can get to it, making sure it is well wiped down with a silicon or oil cloth. I wrap my collectibles in a oily rag. Do not store it in any leather, use a gunblanket zip up holder instead, and leave about an inch of the zipper undone so the blanket can breathe. Check it often. Change nothing on it. No repairs(Even if needed), and no refinish at all. The value of that RZM PPK will go nowhere but up!
Just my take on it, narkcop. Not trying to tell what to do. I just have a passion for WWII Walther PP's and PPK's, and like to see them taken care of.
It is a nice pistol!
Go look in Guns International at German Pistols. Someone is trying to sell one like yours with a bit better finish for $1600+
Like I said, it will go nowhere but up in value. The 90' safety dates it as early issue.
Good info and serial numbers here: http://www.tague.at/pistolen/en_index.htm
OK Brother, Do yourself a HUGE FAVOR & secure that weapon away somewhere safe, where it won't be in any danger of deterioration. Clean it lightly, then coat it liberally with either Breakfree, or perhaps your preventative of choice. It will only rise in value, & I do mean substantially !! As another Poster said, "shoot it if you must", but I WOULD NOT !! Much too valuable & collectable to shoot, IMHO. It 'may' be possible to research & even document its history, although it won't be easy. There are a few extremely knowledgeable Walther PP / PPK Series collectors & researchers out there, & that's the route I would persue. Let me know if you need any assistance. Good Luck,
Very cool. Thanks for sharing the pics.
I'm looking at another WW2 PPK thats eagle C marked indicating it was police issued. Its in better shape finish wise .
I’m not a PPK fan, but if I never bought another, it would be an old classic like that.
I used to collect German & Axis Polizei pistols, & still have a few in the collection. Anything 'Eagle C' marked is sure to have seen use during the War. As WW2 progresssed, Polizei units were issued many obsolete makes & models, as the were not 'usually' in front line service. My favorites are my Department marked Mauser M-1914's of which I still have 3, complete with their issue rigs. Also have a Polizei issue P.08 [ Luger ] with the black leather shoulder holster it came in. Holster may have been issue, or may have been an early post-war example made for an U.S. Serviceman, as was extremely common during those post-war years. ALWAYS REMEMBER, Condition is everything !!!
A scarce PPK. I collect 1945 and earlier German (and Japanese) weapons and I have a Waffenamt marked PP. Many, many years ago I worked with a WW2 veteran, long deceased now, and he brought back an absolute mint 1937 dated S/42 Luger rig and an even more mint late war PPK rig. I tried to get one or both from him but he would not sell as they were to go to his sons when he passed.
Legacy Military Collectibles auctioned off LATE model RZM PPK's in the $2500-$3500 range..
I'd be looking at taking -real- good care of that thing, no shooting, no refinish/repair, etc.
Very cool indeed
