    PPK WWII Political Grips

    Hello every one! New to forum! I am hoping someone can help me out! Does anybody know where a person can buy a set of Reproduction WWII grips with the NAZI Eagle on them? I have seen a couple of sets of Originals but they are way too rich for my blood!! Any help would be appreciated. If there are Just NONE out there I guess I will have to start making them myself! There has to be a market for them, I would think! Many Thanks in advance! Nick

    Well first of all welcome from down in the swamp. Unless you are rich I don't think you will find any originals. I don't know of anybody making repro's. So I guess you better get busey. Good luck.

    Hi Nick, and welcome to the forum.
    The "Party Leader" repro grips you refer to are accessible on the 'net. I bought a pair of brown grips at E-Bay, although the person selling them may have been removed from that venue. I have since seen the same grips from the same guy at either GunBroker.com or AuctionArms.com. They cost me about $90 if I remember correctly, and I think it may be questionable if they are worth that. The fit isn't perfect, too far from the bottom of the slide, and the color isn't correct. Still they are cool. Good luck in your search! Let me know if I can be of any help.

    Hey Nick,
    I looked back in my spotty records, and found an e-bay user name. It's criio1 if you want to search for him at E-Bay. I did just that and found an auction ending August 3rd for the grips in question. Here's a link to that page:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=130134467433
    I didn't find much else, but I hope this helps! Again, I'd be careful of this guy, even though he has good feedback ratings. I did a search for any open auctions at E-Bay, and came up with zero, so I'm not sure if he disappeared in the last week or so...
    Good luck and be careful.

    Hey Nick,
    Just saw another pair, from a different seller at gunbroker. Search for auction number "78459567" (just type the number in the search field). Auction ends August 23rd at 9:17 PM Eastern time, current high bid is/was $59.99
    Good luck again!

    Can someone enlighten me as to why someone would want ANYTHING with Nazi insignia on it? I understand historical value of certain items and a particular value for research, but anything related to Nazism just seems reprehensible.

    Forgive my ignorance. I'm new to handguns (my first is an HK USP .45 Compact). I'm planning on following up with a P22 for a plinker and a PPK/S. I'm a 37 year old medical student and a pretty bright guy, but I just don't follow the whole interest in Nazis (unless one aligns their thinking with that particular modality). And please understand, I'm not passing judgement; I'd just be interested in hearing the reasoning.

    Thanks.

    Not that it really matters to me but I wouldn't mind knowing the reason for ones interest in Nazi paraphernalia.

    Many thanks to the member who alerted me that I might contribute to this thread!

    There are as many reasons for collecting NAZI memorabilia as there are collectors so I can mainly only speak for myself. I collect myself and deal in WWII memorabilia from ALL sides of WWII. But, the VAST Majority of Items I get requests for are NAZI. I personally collect WWII German Daggers. The main reason I do is because of the vast Array of edged weapons the Germans created during the war. German Knives have always been some of the best and most beautiful ever created, And prior to and during WWII was no exception. The Nazis gave a special dagger to Every type of little functionary. Which means Literally Hundreds of Dagger and Sword types. I am a Psychologist by Profession and am also Fascinated by the Power and Control Hitler was able to exert on a whole Country. Also the extent that the German People were willing to go to for him. Think about it, This was not some little 3rd World, Primitive Country, but one of the Oldest, Most "Civilized", and Advanced Nations on the Planet!

    I think it is fascinating, and also think it could EASILY Happen again. The relics that are in collections PROVE without a doubt that it did and this needs to be remembered and watched for so IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN!

    Thanks for the invitation to join the thread. My own personal interest is in Walther Pistols, and especially collectible examples as one method of investment. I do not personally suffer from any attraction or aversion to the Nazi/facist philosophy, nor do I consider the politics of Nazi Germany to be a factor in the desirability of a World War II Walther handgun. I think perhaps you are overreacting?
    This thread was started to discuss the availability of a set of "Party Leader" reproduction grips for a Walther PPK. It's only a set of grips, not a political statement.
    Respectfully,
    Craig

    Nick and Craig, thank you both for the replies. With regard to "overreacting" I can only say that I began reading through this forum due to my own interest in a PPK. I'd decided I wanted to get some nice grips for it and I saw this thread and wondered what it was about. After reading I was astonished. I mean, I'm not naive; I realize there are those who are inclined to collect, trade and sell Nazi memorabilia. I'd simply never had any contact with that crowd.

    Personally, I would never want anything like that in my home. I realize full well what happened in WWII and I know that there are still those in our world that are hate-mongers (whether Nazi, neo-Nazi, white supremacists, genocidal African warlords, etc).

    I guess it would be the same to me if someone said, "Hey, I've got this really great collectible machete that was used in Darfur to hack a mother and her three children to death while their father watched. Wanna buy it for $3000?"

    That's how I equate anything with a Nazi seal on it. It's repugnant. If you found the perfect set of Nazi grips for your gun (the kind that was being discussed in this thread) and it was a great price, but you also learned that those same grips were on a gun that killed a child simply because that child was a Jew, would you still buy them? I mean, how can you know that didn't happen? Would it make a difference in your investment (as you put it)?

    My response may not be popular with the "Nazi collectible crowd", but it's sincere. I'm just baffled at how these objects are acceptable. Thank you again for your response.

    It might be good and useful to find a "...really great collectible machete that was used in Darfur to hack a mother and her three children to death while their father watched," in that it would be a historical artifact that, like Nazi daggers, would continually remind us not to let such things happen again.
    But I wouldn't keep such things in my home.
    Especially in the case of the machete from Darfur, I'd make a point, in front of collected media, to present it to the UN with a note of reproach for not doing anything about the massacres there and in Rwanda.
    Nazi memorabilia, too, might better be seen in a museum setting, complete with a detailed explanation about "...the extent that the German People were willing to go to for [Hitler]..." and why.

    Agreed, Steve. A museum is acceptable. Reminders are good. Anything else is beyond my understanding.

    And to at least one individual (presumably more), a museum exhibit is unacceptable.
