We can’t all be James Bond. After all, not all of us are members of the elite MI6 organization; nor are we secret agents with a seemingly unlimited supply of resources at our disposal. We can, however, come close by purchasing a firearm that is based on what is perhaps most notable as being the pistol of choice for one Mr. James Bond. We now have a limited supply of pistols whose design was based on the famous Walther PPK.
The Hege Waffen AP-66 is a Spanish made pistol chambered in .32 ACP (7.65 mm Browning) and was produced by Astra Arms as a copy of the Astra Constable, which itself is a pistol based heavily on the Walther PPK. Hege Waffen, a German company not known as a manufacturer, distributed the pistol throughout Western Europe despite not having manufactured it. These unique pistols are used but in great condition and will make a fine addition to any collection. Included with the pistol are two brand new eight round magazines.
If you’re hesitant about spending enough to own an authentic Walther PPK, Keepshooting.com offers the Hege Waffen AP-66 at a fraction of the cost. Bring home the Bond pistol today for only $199!
The Hege Waffen AP-66 is copy of the Astra Constable and based on the design of the Walther PPK. It is a blowback double-action, semi-automatic pistol with an overall length of 6.5-inches and a barrel length of 3.5-inches. It is chambered in .32 ACP and will fit any standard Astra Constable .32 ACP magazine, which holds eight rounds. The pistol is equipped with an exposed hammer, standard front and rear sights and also includes a thumb safety.
You will find Hege Waffen’s Pegasus logo stamped on the left side of the slide, along with the name and location of the distributor (“Hege Waffen West Germany”). The right side of the slide is stamped with the name and location of the importer (“PW Arms Redmond WA”).
When you order, you will receive:
- One Hege Waffen AP-66 pistol
- Two Astra Constable .32 ACP magazines
This firearm’s small size makes it an ideal choice for concealed carry and is great for both beginners and experienced shooters.
Two Pistols, One Designation
The Hege Waffen AP-66 has proven to be quite the enigma. Hege Waffen, as mentioned, has historically been known as more of a distributor than a manufacturer. You can think of the company as an equivalent to Wal-Mart, though on a much smaller, firearms-related scale. Hege Waffen actually distributed two variants of the pistol both designated the AP-66. Aside from the pistol sold here, there is a second AP-66 that was manufactured by FÉGARMY Arms Factory of Hungary as a copy of the FÉG PA-63. Similar to the Astra Constable, the FÉG PA-63 was based heavily on the design for the Walther PP. Basically, what we have are two different pistols with one designation, manufactured by two different companies and distributed by Hege Waffen. Coincidentally, we have stocked and sold the FÉG-manufactured AP-66, though it is completely sold out. Talk about confusion. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a unique piece of firearms history.
