Default Example

Here is my contribution to the thread my Walther PP examples are with one marked on the front strap and rear of the pistol, I think the one marked on the rear of the pistol is a fairly early PP.

Also they dont seem to follow any set pattern of SN to the W number, meaning two RFV pistols 50 SN a part can have W numbers 400 apart.
That's right. Here our example (SN904679 - R.F.V.6188W) - with very close serial number to the example from the beginning of this thread (SN904658 - R.F.V.6673W)

strange RFV
PP sn 224390P has rear grip strap marking “R.F.V.21057” without the “W”. Right side slide numbered 224390P with different style numbers that match numbers on both matching mag bottoms, luft style. https://luger.gunboards.com/showthre...ghlight=pp+rfv
any ideas?
