    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Got me a Walther PP

    Call me Bond... James Bond.



    Yeah, I inherited an old French-made, German-proofed PP over the break. The Walther history is quite fascinating. This is my first real experience (well, I shoot my buddies P22 and P99 from time to time, but that's not the same animal, is it?).

    Anywho, I'm planning on a trip to the range this weekend to sight in the AR (see Cassius' thread) and I guess put a few through the pipe of this fine-looking .32 ACP.








    I suppose there will be a forthcoming review, too.

    Magnificent tooling.

    Thanks for the closeups...if anything is a testament to the quality of engineering that went into that, it's that it looks like it could have come off the assembly line this morning.

    I sometimes used to carry a PPK as my personal protection weapon in Northern Ireland.

    Based on my limited knowledge, this thing is vintage 1958-59. To look at it, it's well used, but also well loved. A little too well loved, perhaps, or maybe just "oiled for storage." It needs a good wipe-down, but my other 1950's weapon is a Winchester .22LR model 710 I think? I've spent tens of hours restoring that, and it still has a ****-ton of rust spots.

    It came with the original manual in German - I suppose I should get that online...
