Re: Information please on a Walther brought back from Germany
OK, fellows...this had been a long thread and I just stumbled into it today.
Here is what this pistol is:
Imperial German procurement (!) Walther Model 4 from WWI.
You can see the Imperial army acceptance mark in the first picture of the second post of this tread.
Appears to be a Crown over gothic letter D or an M or a W.
German Army procured a number of small .32 cal semi-autos as secondary weapons during WWI, which were issued to drivers, doctors, support personel, officers(if they did not purchase their own). THese included Walthers, Behollas, Langerhans(sp?), Dreyse, etc, etc...
The holster is a typical German Army holster and is dated 1916, I believe.
The gun was probably reissued during WWII or was possibly in the civilian hands, following the end of WWI.
Nice rig. About $750 retail.
