    New German on the block...

    I just had to have it...it's German and it has character + history....Bond gun at first...then believed to be the gun that Hitler did the world a favor by trying it out on his head.

    I agree, but that's what they had 42 years ago.

    I may add some Nills....

    Good idea.
    As homely as they are, they are the original plastic grips and you'll probably want to keep them in perfect condition anyway.

    I will take that advice.....cheap mags with Nill grips would look like socks on a rooster.

    Earl, that is a nice looking Walther. Where did you find it?

    I may be wrong, but pretty sure James Bond carried a PPK in .32?
    But still a very nice piece, waiting to come across one myself.

    Nice German PPK

    I believe the brown colored grip panels on a Walther PPK indicate German manufacture. These guns were also manufactured under license from Walther by the US company Interarms, after it became illegal to import the German made guns under Federal law. The Interarms PPKs have black grip panels, as on mine shown below:

    Actually, in Dr. No (the first Bond movie), the Armorer (not yet the Q we would all come to know and love) basically had to force Bond to give up his Beretta .25 and upgrade to the PPK (don't recall if they mention .32 or .380, but I think .32 is right...). So, the first Bond gun is the Beretta .25, for those keeping track.

    Why, yes, I did just get home from Monday night bar trivia. Why do you ask?

    But of course .32 cal was quite adequate for 007, as he was the master of shot placement and severed the main aorta with each shot fired.

    imthduke , Your pistol appears to be in outstanding condition. Congrats on a nice find. As we "speak" I am waiting on delivery of a Walther PP in .32. This is a Lower Saxony police trade with the Nds marking. My hope is that the Walther is in as good condition as the recent HK P7 trade-ins. Every collection should include a Walther or two. This one fills a niche between my Interarms TPH and PPK/S .380. It will be interesting to compare the quality of the Interarms Vs. the Ulm Germany pistol.

    I would be interested in hearing your evaluation of the two.
