It took me a while but I just finished my Walther PP clone collection. The center FEG AP MBP 7.65 I just finished repainting the missing red safety dot with Testors gloss red enamel model paint which really works well. The left grip panel was broken off so I obtained a used pair. It also had a missing rear site which I sourced out. The top is a 1952 Manurhin PP and the bottom is a 1970 CZ VZOR 50. Maybe sometime down the road I will add a P64 to the collection.

Also the Ease German P1001-O-7.65 or 22 and the Turkish MKE 32 or 380.

Those pre-68 French Walthers are fine pistols on their own. I wouldn't call them clones since all post-War PPs and PPKs were made in France regardless of what the slide roll says. Too bad they continued post-'41 German pattern. Short beaver tail is a little easier on the hand, especially after a few boxes, not to mention it looks better.

It's usually (not always, though) stamped on the chamber. Does it have serrated trigger and goofy trapezoid rear sight?

Good point. They don't take any back seat to the German made ones according to those who own both.

I've had plenty of both. The worst thing about the PP/PPK design is der signalstift. The spring is fragile and prone to breaking. The best one to find is a pre-'41 without the loaded chamber indicator.
