Can anyone help me find the approximate value for a pistol my father is considering selling? It's a Walther ppk. Made in 1980, so it's the last of the German made ones ('81 they started making them here). This pistol is UNFIRED, NIB. He bought it as an investment, as he couldn't beat the price.

I went to gunbroker and gunsinternational but didn't find a match.

thanks

It should be a Walther PPK-S. As an authentic German-made pistol it's one of those that are guaranteed to work and have none of the later problems associated with the Interarms or Smith & Wesson copies.

Me? I'd place the value of an 80's PPK-S in very good to excellent condition at something more than retail for what Smith is presently selling. (around $650.00 to $750.00)

thanks for your help. it is in fact a PPK. no 's'. according to dad.

for that price range, he might just keep it. My kids will look to sell it one day. Still NIB unfired.:D

With all due respect. Something isn't adding up. If that's really a 1980's Walther; it can't be a German-made PPK pistol. Either it's an 80's German-made PPK-S, or it's an American-made PPK from Interarms.

(By the way I love my German-Made PPK-S. In more than 35 years of use it hasn't hiccuped once!)

Mine is a German made PPK-S manufactured in 1976 and imported by Interarms. I believe they were the sole importers and the time.

GebauerFra - I encourage you not to give up your guns. Remember 1932!

Just the other day the US government granted asylum to a German family who escaped from German oppression. The family is now living in Tennessee.

Its quite simple. In 1972 and 1976 you had to register all your guns (exept single shot black powder and air guns with an energy limit of about 5.5 fpds. Up to that point it was, while with handguns not legal, quite easy to buy rifles and handguns. So tons of guns found a way into some bedroom locker or safe. The generation of the owners is dying now. When i.e your husband or your das dies you will not be allowed to own the guns. They will be blocke, so taht you cant fire it and you have to prove that you have bought a safe.
Seeing these obstacles to have a gun that you cant fire, they simply turn them in to the rulers or to a gun shop.
First register than confiscate. In the way they do it they even dont have to compensate because the people turn their guns in freely.
