10/15/20 - This is a rare PDM Walther PP Rig, manufactured around 1935. In 1935, Himmler ordered about 1,800 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. 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 pistol falls in the correct serial range. This gun has retained about 85% of its original bluing. There is muzzle wear, high edge wear on the slide, and spotty wear along the top of the slide, and an area of wear on the right side of the slide. There is also some spotty oxidation on the slide. Minor pin-pricking on both straps. The bore is shiny and minty. The rig comes with a Berlin-marked, 1937-dated black leather holster. It also comes with one finger extension and one flat bottom magazine. The flat bottom mag is notched. The finger extension mag originally did not have a notch (proper) but a crude notch was added.
