The Walther PP was issued back in 1929; but it's later variant, the PPK was issued back in 1931. It was issued to many different branches of law enforcement and military in Europe; but also saw service within the many branches of the Nazi Regime of World War 2. Nazi political leaders such as Adolf Hitler carried a Walther PPK; which he used to commit suicide on April 30, 1945.
Post-World War 2
After World War 2; the Walther PP and PPK manufacturing in Germany ceased, but they gave the French the liscense to manufacture the weapon. They eventually gained back the rights to make the weapon and newer models of the weapon were introduced.
Since it's introduction; the Walther PP and it's variants remained a popular sidearm for many civilians throughout the galaxy. It also was still one of the major sidearms of the Fascirians; including Dankbar Untoten, who carries a gold Walther PP and or PPK.
