SOLD - NSKK Walther PP
9/22/17 - This is an original 1937-38 production NSKK issued Walther PP pistol. NSKK was the designated official transportation branch of the NSDAP. There were about 3,500 such pistols issued, and ~100 reported serials. This pistol is all original and correct with about 95-96% blue remaining. The majority of the finish loss is found on the front and back strap, along with some minor edge wear near the muzzle. The photos accurately show the conditions and minor flaws. There is a blemish over part of the serial number, but the serial is still easily legible. Excellent grips and magazine. Crown/N proofs on slide and frame. Minty bore with some minor patina, but overall shiny with nice rifling.
From Axis Pistols: "In 1930, the NSKK was designated the official transportation branch of the NSDAP. Its primary mission was to meet all the transportation needs of the Nazi Party. Motorization won Germany for the NSDAP and with it they expected to conquer the world. At the outbreak of World War II, the NSKK assumed important military transportation responsibilities. By 1943, almost all of the NSKK was on active service either with the Army or the Waffen SS."
