|Description||This is an excellent example of a Walther Mod. PPK pistol with the highly desirable Party Leader grips. Officially known as the "Honor Weapon of the Political Leaders", the PPK pistols with these special grips were presented to NSDAP officials for meritorious party service by the Fuhrer. The pistol has a high-polish blue finish. The brown plastic one-piece wrap around grips are checkered and have the NSDAP eagle holding a wreath encircled swastika insignia cast on the top of the both sides. The pistol has a side magazine release, lanyard staple at the bottom of the frame, 60 degree safety lever, and cartridge indicator pin. The blue magazine has a brown plastic finger extension and is marked with the Walther banner on the lower left side. Pre-war commercial "crown/N" proofmarks are stamped on the right side of the slide below the ejection port and on the right side of the barrel at the chamber and muzzle. The serial number is marked vertically on the right side of the frame behind the trigger. The left side of the slide is marked with the Walther Banner followed by the factory legend and caliber in two lines and the designation "Mod. PPK.". The 173,000K-180,000K range of PPKs has perhaps the largest concentration of Party Leader PPKs.
|Condition||Near new. The pistol retains 99% original blue finish with very limited holster wear present on the muzzle end edges of the slide. There is a tiny area of very minor surface rust pitting on the upper right front of the slide and overall only a couple minor handling marks. The grips are also excellent. The markings remain clear and crisp. Mechanically excellent. An exceptionally nice Walther PPK Party Leader pistol.|
