10/3/17 - This is an early, first variation Walther Model 8. The first Model 8's were manufactured in 1920 and started with serial 390,000, making this one of the first 10,000 made! It is all original and correct, with about 96-97% bluing remaining. There is very little actual finish loss, with minor edge wear, but there are brown spots of patina coming through in various places on the pistol. Chambered in 6.35mm. Left grip panel has a minor crack. Excellent bore.
