Ss Walther Pp/ppk Black Book-gold Edition:
SS Walther PP/PPK was first published in 2010 and has now sold out. It was the first and only book that described in detail how to identify SS Issued PP/PPKs. What to look for, serial number ranges in which each variation may be found and color photographs of each PPK variation. There were sections on how to identify counterfeits and hundreds of photographs of index cards found in the National Archives and a serial number list of more than one thousand PP and PPKs known to exist. The book sold out in eighteen months and has been out of print for some time.
Now the sequel to that book is available and contains everything that was included in the first edition and a great deal more. A new and extremely rare variation has been discovered and documented in the last year and is included in this new edition. There are only five of this new variation known to exist at the present time and details of how to identify this variation with photographs is in this new book.
In addition, the author has included his entire database in this new edition including for the first time serial numbers of all known SS PP/PPKs guns to include those for which archival documents were found and included in the first edition, all those known to exist in the hands of collectors and those for which “orphan” magazines still exist but for which the guns have not yet been located.
This database alone makes the price of the book insignificant if you are a collector of SS issued guns or wish to become one. The database contains nearly two thousand confirmed serial numbers, a total of twenty six pages of confirmed serial numbers in all.
The book also contains a breakdown of serial numbers by variation to help collectors determine the relative rarity of their guns.
Every section which was included in the first edition has been expanded and a number of photographs of the original Walther Factory are included at the back
The expanded second edition is called the Gold Edition to set it apart and once again had been published in limited quantities.
Two hundred and thirty two pages.
