Walther PPK P21, Bundeswehr
 
Description:
The Walther PPK was introduced into the German armed forces in 1956 as the Walther PPK P21, Bundeswehr. The weapon was originally intended as an emergency weapon for Luftwaffe pilots and was carried concealed on man so that it would be available in the event of an egress.
 
The NATO supply number is 1005-12-120-0893, and on early Walther PPK P21, Bundeswehr (until about 1960) this number was on the right side of the slide. From about 1960 on, the number was omitted.
 
The early magazines were also marked with the supply number. The main magazine with extension had the supply number 1005-12-120-0893, later 1005-12-124-2245, simplified 12-24-2245. The secondary magazine had the supply number 1005-12-120-0894. Also on the early magazines the delivery date (month/year) was marked on the magazine back. Again, there are different variants (with supply number and date, date only, without anything).
 
There are different marking variants of the Walther PPK P21, Bundeswehr. With and without supply number, with and without year of delivery on the slide, with different proof marks etc.
 
Originally the weapons were blued, but during general overhauls by the Bundeswehr they were phosphated. Weapons that were overhauled after January 12, 1981 also received a "BW" ownership stamp.
 
Only 7'457 pieces of the Walther PPK P21, Bundeswehr were delivered to the Bundeswehr. Of these, 5'568 were equipped with a steel frame and only 1'889 with a light metal frame.
 
The serial numbers are not contiguous. According to Marschall DWJ 2/2001, the weapons with light metal frame (dural frame) range from 502758 (December 1956) to 504600 (April 1957).
In later years, the weapon was used not only by the Luftwaffe, but also by the Army, the Feldjägers, naval ship commanders and Wallmeisters.
 
The production of the Walther PPK in the years 1954 to 1985, which are stamped with "Walther Ulm", according to relevant expert opinion, in reality should have taken place at Manurhin in Mulhouse!
 
The Swiss Army had also introduced the Walther PPK as the Walther PPK (Pistole 65).
