    Picked up very nice FN 1900 with change purse holster and extra holster. Looks like Walther PP size. Made out of very soft thin leather, very lightly marked "fkx" on the back. Condition is excellent. Can anyone help me with IDing it?

    All - Can anyone identify whether Walther manufactured or outsourced its hard rubber grips for the early Walther PP's prior to turning to Trolitan phenolic grips? Who might have supplied hard rubber grips to Walther in this period of 1929-1934? So-called weighted grips (3rd variation) often...

    I recently acquired a Walther PP and holster that was hidden in a box with some other WWII items (helmets, etc) that had been left out of view (for years) out of fear of offending possible buyers of the shop. I am looking for any possible information in regards to the gun itself. The helmets are...

    I just purchased Walther PP 754,355 (1930) with features indicative of early PP's including a 2-piece covered firing pin, flat heavy hammer without a groove, fat safety lever, short slide/"long" barrel, and X (cruciform)-grips. Perfectly electro-penciled into the right front flat surface of the...

    The original extension magazine for the PP was the slab-sided banner mag most often in black. Does anyone know when this early mag was replaced by the hollow-sided mag, or whether there was a period without extension mags available. My research suggests the black slab mag was original to PP's...

    Question: I note that the later war PP and PPK's with letter suffixes (P & K) vary as to whether the letter is upper or lower case. In the variations with slide serial markings I do not believe the case of the letter necessarily matches that on the frame. Can someone explain whether there is...

    WTB: So-called LIGHT X or THIN X grips found on the ring hammer variation of a 1930 Walther PP. These are not the heavy X grips found on earlier serial numbers, nor weighted, nor hollow grips.

    I own 761,769 which has these grips and The Pancho Collection (on line) shows identical grips on 761,071. This serial range falls within Marshall’s second variation, ring hammer sub-variation, that began around 756,000 and extends into the 770,000’s. Guns before these all have the heavy X grips...

    Tang well marks are commonly overlooked, if they appear at all, in Walther pistols. I own a first year PP (1930) 752,682 with a stamped crown located on the floor of the tang well behind the hammer. The crown mark is unlike familiar ones in that it is comprised of a circle at its base with...
