1/29/16 - This is an original Chrome finish Walther PPK from World War II. Most people would think this was refinished by a GI, but there were about 200 chrome pistols produced. In the 417xxx serial range of PPK's, there is a solid block of chromed guns. They are have the following unique features - Chrome finish - Aluminum frame - Blued rear sight - Chrome magazine with black finger extension.
Of these 200 guns, only about 25 still exist. They where made in 1944 for some special reason or presentation, but that information is lost to history. This one is excellent and correct. Very rare!
