Original German WWII Walther PPK Black Leather Holster - DRGM Akah Marked
Original Item: Only One Available. The Walther PP (Polizeipistole, or police pistol) series pistols are blowback-operated semi-automatic pistols, developed by the German arms manufacturer Carl Walther GmbH Sportwaffen.
It features an exposed hammer, a traditional double-action trigger mechanism, a single-column magazine, and a fixed barrel that also acts as the guide rod for the recoil spring. The series includes the Walther PP, PPK, PPK/S, and PPK/E models. The Walther TPH pocket pistol is a smaller caliber pistol introduced in 1971 identical in handling and operation to the PPK.
Various PP series are manufactured in Germany, France and the United States. In the past, the PPK version has been manufactured by Walther in its own factory in Germany, as well as under licenses by Manurhin in France; Interarms in Virginia and by Smith & Wesson in Maine. Since 2018, PPK and PPK/S models have been built at the factory of US-based subsidiary Walther Arms, Inc.
The PP and the PPK were among the world's first successful double action semi-automatic pistols. They are still manufactured by Walther and have been widely copied. The design inspired other pistols, among them the Soviet Makarov, the Hungarian FEG PA-63, the Polish P-64, the American Accu-Tek AT-380 II, and the Argentinian Bersa Thunder 380. The PP and PPK were both popular with European police and civilians for being reliable and concealable. During World War II, they were issued to the German military (officers), including the Luftwaffe, as well as the Ordnungspolizei.
This black leather holster is in very nice, serviceable condition. Almost all of the original black finish is present but does show minor wear and crazing. The spare magazine is located on the outside of the holster and not on the face like most seen. The leather securing strap and retainer are both present and in lovely condition.
The stampings on the holster consist of a WALTHER / P.P.K ink stamp on the underside of the top flap and the D.R.G.M. AKAH on the breakaway flap. The DRGM stamping is extremely faint from wear, but we can still make out the lettering, not the rifle stamp.
This is an extremely fine holster that is more than ready to be paired with a WWII era Walther PPK!
Comes more than ready for display.
