Walther PP or PPK is the best of the three. Good many of them were imported upto 1988. It is quite possible that you can get one almost unused.They came with one spare magazine.I consider it to be a gold standard for a small pocket pistol. Being double action you can safely carry it loaded with hammer down.In emergency all you have to do is to press the trigger to fire it.From hammer down position the trigger pull is as heavy as that of a revolver.Goodluck with your search.

My order of preference from personal experience...

1) Beretta (if from 30 or 70 series) .... reason : all steel and rugged construction.... handles all ammo..almost no ejection problem.... But no double action... Series 80 pistols with DA trigger mostly have alloy bodies...
2) Mauser HSc.... reason : all steel.. great German design but positioning of springs that make the DA work makes it difficult for most Indian gunsmiths to repair/ replace trigger, hammer and sear springs.
3) Walther ... reason : superb looks, the 007 factor but cannot take rough use, the safety/decocker on slide is prone to breakage after prolonged use.... original lettering and etching on slide wears of faster than other weapons if holster carried regularly...

But as we all know..... Every man must make his own choice...

Hope that helps

if you want single action pistols thn bretta is best. all steel body and and smooth firing....if you want double action pistol and money is not issue for you than you can buy walther pp or ppk etc, it will cost you 13 lac mauser hsc is also good pistol but mechanism of mauser not good as walther, its ejecter is not good. but it is cheap than walther, it will cost you around 7 lac

friend,
i own a beretta.32 1934 model(1952 make) and i always wanted a llama as it is a 1911 style.i don't like the look of walther and mauser.
anyhow,beretta is the simplest of all the 3guns you mentioned; easy to operate,very few parts and easy to dissassemble and reassemble.
you said walther is good as it is a double action,so is the risk of anyone using it without knowledge of guns.you must have seen most people, as soon as they pick up the gun ,first thing they do is pull the trigger and look inside the barrel.so a single action beretta is much safer.for the first shot you have to use the slide to load,which many would not know how to do without training.
llama is a good looking weapon,i didn't have an oppurtunity to fire more than a bullet.can you let me know the performance?
regards
dr.jayakumar

No doubt Llama is good looking, but sometimes it jams with Indian Ammo.

Aloha,

No experience with the Mauser.

I teach Basic Handguns here in Hawaii for people who want to own a handgun.

I usually use a Beretta Model 86 with tip up barrel. Blow back in cal 380.

Also own, Colt Mustang, Beretta Model 70S, Walther PPK/s, Beretta 86.

Wife has a Beretta 84 , Sig 239(I think) and Bersa Thunder 380.

Best easy shooter of them all is the Beretta M-86, then the 84, Colt Mustang and Beretta 70s last.

The Bersa, Walther and Sig are barky and snappy shooters. All are hard on the web of the shooting hand.

The women in the gun classes like the Beretta 86 best to shoot.

If going to full size, the Beretta 92 in 9mm is popular with the ladies. Yes, the grips are large,

But, if the lady likes it, she will adapt to the gun and learn to shoot it well.

Whatever gun you get, make sure that you have a minimum of 3 Functioning magazines.
