View Full Version : red walther

I purchased a walther pp with nazi proof marks in 7.65mm a while back at an auction. The guns metal has a distinctive red tint to it; so much so that the grip panels were stained red. I looked in my antique guns book; but found nothing about red walthers.Any help with this would be greatly apprieciated.

From your description It sounds like the gun was either refinished or finished at the factory, during mfg with the bluing tubs to hot.
