Hi All,
I just bought an old Walther PP in 7.65(.32acp) That I'm hoping someone can help me out with. It's a "Crown N" proof so we know it's prewar Right? It has a 90 degree safety so we know it's fairly early right? Also has loaded chamber indicator so it's not too early, right?
What I don't know is the year they switched from the 90 degree to the latter type. The serial # is 7811xx
We've also got stamped on the top of the chamber Bohler Stahl Antin?? last one or two letters illegible.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

The crown N marking probably means that it was made before Hitler came to power in 1933.
