RZM WALTHER PPK, WITH PARTY LEADER HOLSTER
The double action Walther PPK was manufactured by Waffenfabrik Walther from 1930 to 1945.
Over 200 are reported with the NSDAP RZM control stamp. It is estimated that about 31,000 RZM stamped pistols were manufactured.(See page 259, Axis Pistols)

The Reichszeugmisteri (RZM) or Party Department of Ordnance controlled the manufacture and distribution of items for use by the numerous organizations of the NSDAP.

The Walther PPK was the honor weapon of the Nazi Party. A Politcal Leader (PL) holster such as that shown below properly carried either an RZM, PL gripped, or unmarked commercial, Walther PPK.

Shown below: PL gorget, a PL holster and an RZM PPK.

I brought this post up so you could compare your RRK RZM and PL holster. In my opinion an RZM PPK can be hosted in a PL holster.
