    Default WTK: Walther PP .22lr (pre War) w/ lanyard loop ?

    I hate to plague this Board with Pre War / War-time pistol questions BUT I find the knowledge here to be a asset and quite honest.....

    Question: I have Jan Still's "Axis Pistols" book but I can find no real mention of .22lr PP Walther in use by the German Military during the War. I know its a pretty rare bird, especially one that is so nice and pre War to boot (no import marks) and no post War markings. * The example I am looking at has all the right markings and is a very nice example BUT it has what looks like a lanyard "plug" in the bottom of the frame (mag well area).

    Zella-Mehils; Crown N; high polish blue; 5.56mm/22lr; last digit of serial number is " P "; black plastic grips.

    I really like the piece and feel it would be a nice collectible BUT this (lanyard loop hole) is bothering me. Can the Board please comment on this ? Ideas/advice/sugestions?

    Hi ppk,
    The "plug" you refer to is a common trait on the pp in .22. This example is Eagle N. I am not sure why people think these guns are rare but Simpsons has about 30 of them for sale

    They are neat little guns.I think the Eagle N's were more likely to have seen para-military use
