3/27/18 - This is an excellent example of a late-war Walther PP, made in 1944. Original finish rates at about 98-99%, with a nice dark, unfaded finish. The grips are the rare reddish color that Dieter Marschall claims to have connection with shooter prize guns, however I have not seen evidence of that. The grips and magazine are all excellent, as is the bore. It appears that this gun is in the exact configuration as the day it left the factory.
