i saw something on tv about Hitler last night and it got me thinking about his suicide gun. does any one know what it was and where it is, because it has to be one of the most valuable and historical handguns in the world.

Theres blood on the ivory grip of that ppk of Hitler's but thats not the one he killed himself with. He used a plane looking ppk to do the job. (from what I watched on a history channel show)

Back then the most respectable gentlemen would carry engraved guns with gold accents and Ivory or other precious handles. This "pimp gun" stuff is all because of nasty looking Taurus and Rossi stuff with gold plated parts and garbage nickel.

That is a Walther PP. You can tell by the longer slide/barrel and the metal backstrap

Not only that, he had a full diamond-encrusted grille too. Just never saw it since he didn't have much to smile about towards the end of the war.

True story! :D

According to my professor (and what do they know, right!?!) this is correct.

I was just watching a great documentary on history ch international about guns of the world "auto pistols" and they just got up to the ppk and showed hitler's decked ppk. Great documentary but i dont see it coming on again when i searched the guide. Just thought it was odd cuz i read this thread a few hours before watching the dvred saved docu.

Yup, engravings, gold and nickel were cool up until that one idiot said "lose that nickel plated sissy pistol". :rolleyes:

To me their still cool.

And no, Mexican drug traffickers did not initiate the engraving trend.

Hand engraved firearms for the most part are works of art.

Hitler was a punk. He starts a huge world war which causes so many people to be killed or lives ruined then punks out. The little twerp should have stood atop his bunker with a machine gun in one hand blazing away and tossing grenades with the other hand, gone out in a blaze of glory. I have no respect for punks like he was. He talked the talk and punked out on walking the walk. All mustache and no spine.

Yeah, people seem to easily forget all of the engraved and plated shotguns still made today, and all of the pre-WW2 revolvers and other things you find in museums and such. I think the issue is more with what you get engraved on your guns. The drug deals get pot leaves, gang logos, silhouettes of naked women, etc. when men used to do it simply to personalize and make it nice, like a fancy pocket watch. Now while some of the Talo stuff may be tacky, some of their designs are kind of neat.

Definitely not the same as getting it custom for yourself though.
