Hi all,

here are some pics of the De-activated PPK RZM I bought last week, it's in very good order, usual bits missing from the grip, serial number 838398, making it a 1935 manufactured weapon, it came with a very nice (and also rare I believe) 1938 dated holster and spare magazine.

PPK's that were marked RZM are very rare and were for the National-Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, better known as the NSDAP, or Nazi Party. They were marked for the purchasing branch who procured equipment and materials for the Third Reich. In German this was the Reichzeugmeisterei. These RZM marked examples were only issued to high ranking nazi party officials.


It comes with some very interesting provenance, The chap I bought it form's father was an officer in the Durham Light Infantry during WW2, he was presented with this pistol and holster by the Dutch resistance when they liberated a town somewhere in Holland apparently, family folk law...perhaps, but an interesting and plausible story.

His father died last year and he "inherited" the pistol after finding it among his late fathers possessions, his wife went apoplectic when he brought it home and told him to get rid of it..... thats where I come in!

Enjoy the pics guys,

Cheers, John.
