Walther PP

I recently picked up this little beauty- 1971 West German produced Walther PP in .32 ACP. I've always kind of wanted one, but there was always something else that caught my eye while out gun shopping, until now.

It has a little bit of holster wear and a couple small blemishes on the right side, but for the most part, retains the high polish, deep blue finish.

It came with a lanyard loop mainspring plug which I replaced. It also came with a no name crappy aftermarket magazine.

I took it to the range and it shot quite accurately, but had a few failures to feed. I noticed that it was easy to pull rounds out of the magazine over the feed lips, so I believed that they were perhaps bent or out of spec.

When I received a couple of Meg-Gar magazines from Numrich, I discovered the lips were a hair narrower- the magazine that came with the gun was apparently for a .380. Haven't yet had a chance to shoot it with the replacements.
