    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In fairness to all I did ask this question on another board but I received only one response

    I am now ready to purchase my Walther PP .32 ACP pistol and there are quite a few to choose from.

    My purpose is just to own a .32 and shoot occasionally and I wonder if I should pay a premium for a pistol that has no importer marks on it? Should I pay the premium for a WWll era Nazi proof mark or is a later manfacture preferable given wartime conditions.

    Again, I am not a collector of Walthers and have other handguns to shoot but I do want a .32 made by Walther.

    Any opinions or advice will be greatly appreciated

    If you are looking for a collector Walther, you need to find either pre-war or early war vintage. These pistols will have slides marked "Zella-Mehlis", where Walthers were made until 1945. Later war guns with have correspondingly rougher finishes and are generally not as desireable unless they have rare issue markings.

    For a shooter, ANY Walther would do nicely including those with Manurhin and/or Interarms markings.
