KKJ Info by serial number



Log in to see fewer ads
Here is an update to the compilation of serial numbers of KKJ and KKM rifles that Gwelo and I came up with so far:

KKJ
0070xx - 1954
27xxx is 1956
390XX - 1959
416** - 1960
471xx is 1961
4809x is 1962, 22 Hornet
48143 - 1962 , .22 l.r.
505xx is 1962
68820 - 1963 verified by photo of proof stamp
5237x is 1964, Canadian
56xxx is 1965
103239 1967 KKJ-T
103370 - 1968 - 68 stamped
10480x - 68 stamped
h 2862 h prefix - 1971 -71 stamped .22 Hornet
e 4371 e prefix - 1973 - 73 stamped

KKM

64410 is 1961 stamped
453x is 1970, UIT
634x is 1971, UIT
69706 is 64 proofed
114xx UIT Spezial 1973
123xx UIT Spezial 1973
198XX UIT Spezial 1977

If you have any verified production dates, please let me know and I add it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are three different firing pins for the KKJ/KKM that I have in my collection. The variations depend on the trigger option and have different sear locations, as well as also different safety engagement areas and safety caps. The lowest fp is for a .22 l.r. KKJ but also fits in the first version KKM that has the same trigger as the KKJ. The end cap without wing safety and the wing safety both can be mounted on the early pin for the KKJ with the cross bolt safety and the KKM with the wing safety.

KKJ

I have KKJ #31524, there is no date stamp, but when I contacted Walther a few years ago, they said they thought it would be a 1959 mfg. I just bought a KKJ-E which should be here in a week to 10 days, the serial # is 25xxx according to the seller, when it arrives, if I can determine the date, I will post it.

I have KKJ .22 Hornet 102778. It is way in the back of my safe, and I will try to dig it out and see the proof mark date sometime soon. My Dad bought it new about 1968.

I have had an older Walther for years, out of its stock and I think its a KKJ, but I am not very good at identifying. '64 proof date with Ser. 69706

That seems to be a KKM, just guessing by the barrel and trigger group.

Where is the date stamped on the rifles and what is the code? It is sort of surprising that Walther would bother to put a date stamp on their rifles but not provide any model ID or name on them.

Thanks.

See Post #8 above. The year of manufacture is indicated by the two-digit number in the stamping on the barrel just ahead of the receiver. Look for the "64" (1964 was the year of manufacture for that particular rifle).

Thanks.
Walther doesn't put the date stamp there, the guns are proofed in government proofhouses.

Thanks CZ_Islandguy, I added your number.

Where are the posters who state that their rifle was made in whatever year getting that information from? I have not been able to find any table showing serial numbers and dates of manufacture of the various models.
