SOLD - SS Walther PPK Rig - Two Matching Magazines & Capture Paper
5/17/17 - This is a RARE find that comes directly from the son of the vet, and as they kept it all together, I will also keep it just as it came home from Germany in January of 1946. This grouping includes a full PPK rig with two matching magazines, AKAH holster and Hitler Youth knife. The gun actually has about 96% of its original bluing left, but has freckling in many spots on the frame and slide. The SS gun is slide and frame numbered, properly in the SS contract range. It has two original matching magazines, though one of those does have a black plastic finger extension. I would have been tempted to swap out for a brown bottom but, again, this is directly from the vet. Grip has a crack on the left side, as well as some gouges in the back. Comes with an akah holster that was brown but dyed black for SS uniform. The holster has the name 'Crane' written inside, to match that of the Sgt. on the capture document. The Hitler Youth Knife is a bit beat up, but is on the capture paper with the gun. It has a vinyl strap which might be replacement but I'm sure it is a late war original as that is the only time they used vinyl. The original capture paper for these items is included, as well as a photocopy. Mirror bore.
