Walther PP-PDM Pistol Rig


Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

It has been a little quiet here lately so I thought I would post a pistol rig.  Please feel free to post anything you have that you might think is interesting.  

 

I picked up a very nice Walther PP-PDM (Munich Police) 7,65mm pistol at the MVACA show in Kansas City last year that I thought I would show.  This is one of the special order police pistols manufactured by Walther to fulfill a circa 1934 order for PP and PPK pistols from the Munchen Polizei (Polizei Direction Munchen = "PDM").  This is one of the approximately 1800 PP delivered to the Munich PD in what appears to be three orders (according to serial numbers).  According to the serial number this pistol is one of the last shipped from the first 1934 order.  

 

These pistols are different in that they have no loaded indicator, have a 90 degree safety, have a bottom grip magazine release and have a swollen muzzle in order to improve accuracy.  The brown leather holster for these pistols was also different in that they were locally made in Munich, have a flap on the top of the spare magazine pouch and have a plugged muzzle end with a drain hole.  These pistols were worn on the left side (cross draw) on a special Munich produced brown leather police uniform belt with a D ring buckle with a single tongue.
