Pictures of a Nazi officer captured PPK, the gentleman I purchased this pistol got it off his dad who was a Police detective in occupied Denmark. Mr Pannu relieved the pistol from a German officer whilst operating underground as a resistance officer.

In 1954 Stephan Pannu was Knighted by King Fredrich the ninth of Denmark for his exemplary police work during the second world war and some of his work was utilized to prosecute Danish collaborators of the German occupied forces at the end of the war.

Hello !!

Nice outfit !! Quite a curiousity this muzzle cover...First time seen !!
Any markings on the leather ??

Do you have any details on the original carry mode of this piece ?? Muzzle cover & 2 flat base mags would lead me to think it was `` pocket carried``.....

Any indication of a treaded muzzle ??

The only details I have on the muzzle cover are that it was with the PPK when Mr. Pannu relieved the german officer of it. I do agree however that it would be odd to protect the muzzle if it was carried in a holster.

The pictures of the muzzle cover are slightly blurred but the stiching is done with the same thread as found on the German holsters. Their is no markings on the cover.

Mr. Pannu Jr. indicated to me that prior to the occupation of Denmark the country was fairly equally divided between Germans and Danes. Given that I do not know if this cover was a homegrown product or did the cover migrate from Germany with the pistol.

I do know that the seller had no reason to lead me astray as when I went to pick up a 1937 luger and holster from him he offered for sale this PPK , a 1935 dated box of 8mm mauser shells and a few other rifles.
