Re: WWII Walther PPK Value
As I stated before I've been collecting for 30 years or more and I watch the Walther PPK and PP pistols like the stock market.Sure I know the prices on the WAa359 and police pistols are higher,but the quality is not always there and alot of them have been reblued,buffed and anything else to get a buyer.I do not even want a Walther after 1940.The nazi thing does not interest me in the least.Walther was shipping those things out as fast as the slave labor could make them.On the other hand prewar Walthers had better finish and workmanship involved.If you watch Auction Arms,*********,Gunsamerica and some of these other auction sites you would see what I'm talking about when collectors are trying to dry up the market.And yes the holster would bring what I stated if it were put on Ebay.
Everything concerning Walther is a value in its self and will only continue to sky rocket.I'm new here and do not mean any disrespect to you gentlemen at all.Sure blue book will give you a price,just like a car dealership,but that does not mean thats all they will offer on trade.I would be glad to give 1200 for this rig and then in five years or so sell it for 1800.I'm hoping you guys understand that I have spent many years of research,time and money just on Walthers alone.I'm happy to find this site and thought I could lend a little help to the forum,but I will not jump in again on these matters unless someone asks for my info or help.
My Kind Regards
Danny PS: If you get a chance I posted my Walthers and other goodies on the C%R section of this site.You will see a 1932 PPk in the box I paid 900 for 15 years ago.Now I am receiving offers of over 3000 for it.They are a very good investment.
