    No idea of value, but certainly shoot it. I think if Grandpa knew you had it and didn't shoot it, he'd be upset.

    I would say with all you have with it over a grand. But you know personal value is always much higher than monitary value.

    That spare magazine looks wrong, to me. Aside from it not being a finger-rest (should be one flat-bottom, one finger-rest), it also looks too long. Looks like a PP mag. Ain't nothing wrong with that. I buy PP mags for my backups. An extra round is always nice. But that needs to be considered when placing value.

    :):):) Wow Goldy you have one just like mine. The only difference is mine is a boxed 1932 & yours is a boxed 1934. You have it all except the finger ext mag.
    The extra mag u have is for a PP not PPK. I have been offered 3 grand for mine. It is a fantastic outfit indeed. Do not shoot it as you may damage the grips from the stress of that little 32cal bullet. If you need a mag I have an extra. Just email me & we will talk.
    I know alot of the members are scratching their heads on the value, but consider this- a box with matching number to pistol, $200. The original owners manuel- 175 dollars. The cleaning tin-150. A cleaning rod-125 and a pistol in that condition,a good 2 grand.
    Keep the bore & the rest of the firearm oiled and put it in a safe friend. In 10 years it will be a 6k gun for sure. Hope this helps?
    Danny:)

    I have the same Walther box that has my minty, never fired RZM ppk. The only difference is the 3 bullets are in an almost triangular wooden holder (not a rectangle like this one) and is positioned above the tin box.
    My Walther tin box has an oil can in it that looks like a 'miniature milk can' with a cork top still filled full with oil. It also has 'hair' in the box which may of been used for cleaning. This is the first one I've seen that is similar to mine. Mine also has a cleaning rod wrapped in the original wax type paper.
    Thanks for sharing the picture.

    Hi flwink54,
    Yeah, to be able to see some pictures of your pistol would be a real treat...!
