Nothing fancy. Here are my Walthers

I just got (again) a huge obsession with PPK's. Just older Walther PPK's a-la James Bond.
Being in CA, I can't just get any of them; I have to go selectively for the ones made up to 1969 (i.e., at least 50 years old).

So here's one example that I got. This one is from WWII but I have already changed its perfectly mint WWII grips to a later brown plastic (which is even more James Bond-ish)

A couple of pics. This one's in .22LR

Several indeed - including black. But not black only in all movies (I have been studying this for a while)

An example (in brown):



from:

Movie Guns Database

Then, Roger Moore's 'For Your Eyes Only'



(From originalprop.com)
In reality I think there were more with brown - or even dark brown - grips than black.

This (below) was in fact the very first PPK we see in any movie (replaced for action shots by a PP in that movie). Brown grips:

.380 PPK/s West German, Interarms Import.



I also have the checkered walnut grips it had when I acquired it, but I like the black plastic grips the best.

Just got me my ideal PPK - after such a long wait (years).
This is an original, 1965 Walther PPK in .32ACP; the correct (original) caliber for James Bond's PPK and the original caliber it came out with initially, in the 1930's

Took another picture - better one, possibly - of my older, pre WWII Walther PPK in .22LR

These are probably my favorite handguns of ever.

Took pictures of my old lady myself; more of them, because I got a vintage slide that I like better to go on my 1939 frame

It's just a vintage .22LR but boy, so beautiful and shoots simply amazingly well; no jams, digests any cheap .22LR that exists etc.

Just for the lovers,
I salvaged this one: I have had it re-blued (frame and slide only).

Possibly blood pitting (unknown), this is an original 1945 P38.
Shoots great, bought it cheaply but it was really a disaster, finish wise.

Some may say I destroyed (some of) the history, but the handgun looked really bad; not even sure it was that kind of history, might have been in the hands of some random bubba who had treated her unfairly.

So she is back with style.

My "d" suffix AC41 looks very similar in terms of wear pattern, but some of mine is probably from being stored in a leather holster by the last owner. Also all matching including magazine.

Walther PP .22 l.r. in factory luxury case. It looked unfired yesterday, I know for certain now that it was shot outside of the Ulm proof house in 1966.

I traded off a Norinco 1911 for this P99 & 200rds of ammo. It came with a spare extended magazine & hard case(for a Sig P225, the owner couldn’t find the Walther case). It already carries better than my Gen2 Glock 19 despite being heavier.

So how is this brand name pronounced?  Is the 'h' silent, or do you say it with the 'th' sound wal-ther like the word 'thorough'?

Picked this up yesterday. Still haven't shot it. Looking forward to putting a 509T on her and swapping out the sights. Probably going to put a TLR-7A on her as well.

Chunky, clunky, and one of the least attractive Walther designs ever, but with a beautiful trigger, fits the hand wonderfully, and is accurate as it can be.  The poor old PPX is a study in contrasts between appearance and function.

My new favorite toy.  Couldn't stand the cheapy plastic OEM grips so I opted for a nice walnut replacement set. They were advertised to fit without modification but I wound up sanding the back a bit where it was rubbing on the trigger bar.  Otherwise they fit perfectly.  

Works great, looks classy and feels good in the hand.  The YHM Phantom can sounds great too. I feel like I should get a tux and a shoulder holster for it
