In 96% very attractive condition, we have a late 1935 production Walther PPK Pistol that is marked with an inventory or issue number of “2”. This would indicate use by a private security apparatus, possibly a bank guard or some time of factory security, or private security or possibly even some governmental agency use. we know for certain that it was a working pistol, not a recreational one. The pistol, is matching and has early features such as the 90 degree safety and there is no signal pin and an excellent bore as well.
Finding a PPK with any kind of additional markings is not common; this certainly adds to the allure of this example. It is interesting to note that in Europe at this time the .32 auto was considered to be fully adequate to use in a service role and for self defense. Today even with the most potent loadings its not considered to be fully adequate for even self defense use let alone being a service round.
