Presented is an acceptable example of a waffenamt proofed wooden gripped Walther PP. It is of the last year of the war and quality has deteriorated considerable but function is acceptable. Wooden grips were introduced some several thousands serial numbers earlier as resources were in short supply or requirements were needed elsewhere for higher priority items rather than pistol grips. Leather quality is still acceptable but pattern was reduced in size to accommodate several more holsters per hide. Main flap was shorten as well as the lower flap was narrowed. Functional capabilty was not impaired but finsh has been reduced overall.

I have a late war wood gripped PP around 1000 numbers earlier than Huggiebears PP. Wish I had a nice late war holster for it like he does. Harry
