For sale -- Walther PPK (yes, PPK, not PPK/S) made by Smith & Wesson, .380 ACP (or, 9mm Short, for you metric nuts). Unfired, in box, two magazines. Full disclosure, there is finish wear on the front strap -- this is just through routine dry handling (my hands are acidic, and modern S&W bluing sucks). Serial number does NOT fall under the recall notice. FTF sales only (no shipping) at FFL of your choice in East Portland/East Multnomah County/Northeast Clackamas County. You pay transfer costs. Saturday usually works best for me. I accept cash/checks/money order. Contact me here via PM or via e-mail at [email protected]

From the photo it looks like case coloring from oil/heat case hardening. Is it just the bluing or is it rust and if it is rusted is it pitted?
Thanks

IMHO that front strap wear looks kinda cool! But how the heck are your hands so acidic? I didn’t realize that was a thing...

It's weird and annoying. My hands eat finishes, if they're weak (and modern S&W bluing is weak. Don't have this problem with the older, higher-polish blues).

It is entirely finish wear and not rust. Actually, it was mostly gray, but I used one of those bluing pens on it. It looks better than it did, believe it or not...

I'd love to own it but cash it pretty tight with this Coved thing. I've got a really nice Remington 1100 advertised for sale in the Shotgun classified section of this forum.

Sorry/happy to hear that. I have two questions, first has it been 100% reliable? I ask because it would be my backup and off duty weapon. My second is where could I meet you? Ever come to the coast? I'm 82 now and don't drive as well or as far as I used to because I just got thru three back surgeries. I live in Coquille but usually buy/sell my guns thru the Yamaha dealership in North Bend just as you come into town from the North on the Coast highway.
Thanks,
Scott Wurster

Oops, just reread your ad. Unifired...it'd been a while since I read it. Disregart the 100% reliable question.
