1/6/21 - This is a very nice example of a rare PDM-marked Walther PP, made in 1935. In 1935, Himmler ordered about 1800 PDM marked PP's as head of all German Internal Security. PDM stands for Police Department of Munich, and the order was unique for the following reasons. These pistols came with a bottom release magazine, while all other 7.65mm PP's had a push button mag release. The proper PDM magazine will have no notch for the push button release, which the magazine in this listing shows. These pistols also have a strengthened 'fluted' barrel, visible on the muzzle end of the barrel, which a standard PP slide would not fit. This one is all matching and has retained about 92-93% of its original bluing. There is wear around the muzzle, high edges of the slide, and spotty wear on the right side of the slide. Very minor oxidation on the straps. It comes with very nice grips - the left panel is a bit bent in the top left corner. It also comes with a proper PDM magazine. The bore is near-mint.
