Re: Walther Model 8
A very few model 8 pistols (and some replacement parts) entered the US before WW II. More likely came back as War Trophies, after the war.
Stoger charged $3.50 for a single replacement grip for a Walther Model 8, when a new commercial Colt Government Model .38 Super or .45 ACP was $44.75 and a new Colt "Frontier Six Shooter" (SAA) was $38.50, before WW II.
Today you can expect to likely pay over $300 for two grips and the two medallion screws that go with them, if you can even find such items in the USA, which is unlikely.
My experiences with gun show vendors is that they usually know what they have when it comes to rare parts for old guns. They are usually not in any rush to sell and do not sell cheaply.
As previously mentioned, your best bet is to contact Earl, if you are willing to pay market prices.
