Book Description By The Author, 2012. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. The Gold Edition is a completely updated version of the author's earlier book. 228 pages. Soft covers. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. SS Walther PP/PPK was first published in 2010. It was the first and only book that described in detail how to identify SS Issued PP/PPKs. What to look for, serial number ranges in which each variation may be found and color photographs of each PPK variation. There are sections on how to identify counterfeits and hundreds of photographs of index cards found in the National Archives and a serial number list of more than one thousand PP and PPKs known to exist. The new Gold Edition contains everything that was included in the first edition and a great deal more. A new and extremely rare variation has been discovered and documented in the last year and is included in this new edition. There are only five of this new variation known to exist at the present time and details of how to identify this variation with photographs is included. In addition, the author has included his entire database, including for the first time serial numbers of all known SS PP/PPKs guns to include those for which archival documents were found and included in the first edition, all those known to exist in the hands of collectors and those for which "orphan" magazines still exist but for which the guns have not yet been located. This database alone makes the price of the book insignificant if you are a collector of SS issued guns or wish to become one. The database contains nearly two thousand confirmed serial numbers, a total of 26 pages of confirmed serial numbers. The book also contains a breakdown of serial numbers by variation to help collectors determine the relative rarity of their guns. Every section which was included in the first edition has been expended and a number of photographs of the original Walther Factory are included at the back. An excellent and thorough study.
