    Given the current PPK market(not very good for common commercial and police models), I would say more like $1250-1350..

    Well, thanks for the reply Valbehaved. can you tell the origin of the holster?, could the holster be the original for this PPK?

    No, the holster is not a PPK holster...
    It is either for a Beretta M1935 or a Walther PP...

    Greetings - I recently acquired a PPK that I am told my uncle got from a German officer. It has a six digit number stamped on one side which from reading the post here is referred to as a SN. The number is 8644XX. It is in what I believe to be very good confdition - but I am a novice. A black holster accompanies the PPK which shows some wear but which I am likewise informed is original. I am interested in whatever information anyone can tell me about this PPK, e.g., when and where manufactured, military issuance/use, possible range of value (recognizing that will depend on condition). Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Every holster I've seen for the PPK pistols, shows the extra clip held on the side of the holster. My dad brought back a PPK police model, but this holster has the extra clip on the front of the holster. Does this detract or increase the value?

    Nice commercial gun, c. mid-1930s production.
    I would guess about a $1000 retail for the rig due to some rust spots on the gun.
    $750 for a quick sale.
    The prices on commercial PPks have been soft lately.
    The holster, in my opinion, is not a PPK holster, but more likely a PP holster(the neck of the holster is too long for the PPK)
    Most of the PPK holsters are actually in this configuration - with spare mag pouch on the front on the holster.
    The less common variants have it on the leading edge.

    Any thoughts, and perhaps value for this one? Thanks.

    Commercial PPK, probably private purchase by a civilian or a military officer. Value is $800 to $1000.

    Hello all. I've got a Walther PP 7.65 that I inherited from my father who inherited it from his father who fought in Germany in WW2. I believe that it may have been made near the end of the war in 1945. It has no proof marks on it...other than 2 serial numbers and the little Walther flags on the hand grip. Below one serial number are the letters 'ac' which I have been told was the Walther war code. I've also been told that because it has no proof marks it may have been taken straight from the factory at the end of the war before it could get finished and sold when the US came through...this is all just speculation though. To be almost 70 years old its in pretty good shape. It has the majority of its blueing, a little holster wear on the tip of the nozzle but very little, very minor wear and tear.

    I have no interest in selling it but just would love to have an idea of its value. I have pics which I'd like to post for anyone to look at who might be able to shed some light. Is there a way to post pics on here off of my computer?

    Sorry, I did not notice the non-matching serials and the ac markings, making this a GI put-together pistol at the captured Walther factory in the spring of 1945. I believe the value is actually about $500.

    Gents,

    I realize this thread is old but I thought I'd try to see if anyone still peeks at it. Another inherited Walther PPK here from my father who got it from my Great Uncle from the war. Interestingly, in the same package I got another Walther, a P38 which is actually nicer than the PPK. Original holsters I believe. PPK is in 9MM. I'll let the pictures do the talking here, y'all are certainly more knowledgable than I am on the specifics of these firearms. Value for each and together? I've got quite a few pics so I'll post in multiple messages.

    1939 on the PPK. commercial model, the German army did not use the 9MM Kurz or AKA 380 because it was not in their supply line. It would have been a very desirable pistol because .380 models are scarce { during that time line }. I would guess 5 to 600 only because the grips, holster and magazines would bring 3 to 400 separately. The name on the slide ruins any collector value but it is still a nice gun and a part of history. The P-38 I'll pass.

    The P38 looks like a nice rig, but we can't give you any details or values unless you post some clear closeups of all the markings on the pistol and the back of the holster. The markings on the magazines are important, too. Don't overlook them, even the really tiny ones.
