    I bought a walther.22 made by the french manurhin. It is in mint condition with manual, test target, authenticity certificate, and original box, with 2 mags. Does anyone know the value. I have seen listings on line between $475 and $1600. It is a really nice piece. The serial number is 6 digits, # 140***
    Thank you

    You don't indicate what model it is; a better description or pictures will be needed to make even a WAG at value. I don't know what you paid, but my initial feeling is that I hope it wasn't $1600.

    Also. Manurhin .22 pistols had a suffix of R or S ( or should ) in the serial number?

    I would say at least $450-500 but then again a true collector, who knows?

    You paid a fair price for it. That would be my guesstimate of value, 350 to 400.

    Thanks for all the feedback. A friend has offered $450 for only looking at photo's. I think however I will keep this one for a while it is really a sweet little piece.

    If you shoot it you may well be surprised by its accruracy and good trigger pull. I have a .22 PP that will shoot almost as well as my Ruger MkI Bull Barrel; it is harder to hold on target than the heavier Ruger, but the accuracy is great.

    I did shoot it and loved it. It was fun, accurate and never failed. I almost hate shooting it as it looks new.

    BTW, I would stick to standard velocity or target ammo for that gun. I have fired high speed in them, but they were designed in the 1930s before .22 HS came on the market, so it might be better to stick with standard velocity.
