    Default Late PP captured at the factory

    Here's my very late war PP that was captured in the factory. Note the lack of any proof marks and no serial number on the frame.

    No story. A friend of mine that's a advanced Walther collector sold it to me. He'd had for 10 years. I wish I knew who liberated it. Thanks for the comments!

    Wow gorgeous piece! They don't get any cleaner than this. Just picked up right out of the factory huh? I wish you knew more of the story too.

    This is a "type" I have been looking for! Love these late ac PP's. I have seen one or two others wothout frame serial numbers. Yours has the wood grips too! Super, super nice.

    You're getting quite a few really good pistols lately. Love seeing them.

    Thanks Tiger ! This past week I located the cousin to this one. It's only 48 digits off. I bought it for the shop as I didn't need 2 of them. We paid 895.00 for the second one! Keep your eyes open they're out there!!
