    Pictured below is my P38 built by Spreewerke GmbH, Metallwarenfabrik, in Berlin/Spandau Germany in 1942 during the second World War. The Spreewerke inspection stamp consisted of an eagle above the number 88 (E/88), but the first 500 weapons made at the Spreewerke factory had Walther inspection stamps which consisted of an eagle over 359 (E/359) . (My specimen has a serial number of 246 and the Walther acceptance stamp E/359). The letters CYQ are the code used to designate construction at the Spreewerke plant, which produced around 285,000 units by the wars end. This specimen is also Wehrmacht stamped with an Nazi eagle over swaztika. The P38 is chambered for 9mm Parabellum and holds 8 rounds in the magazine. She also came with a black semi-hard leather holster that holds an extra magazine.

    PPK/s

    Here's my circa 1972 West German Walther PPK/s chambered for the .380acp cartridge.

    The Walther PP series pistols are blowback-operated semi automatic pistols.They feature an exposed hammer, a traditional double-action trigger mechanism, a single-column magazine, and a fixed barrel which also acts as the guide rod for the recoil spring. The series includes the Walther PP, PPK, PPK/S, and PPK/E.

    P22 for fun

    I'll chime in.
    Have been watching these for a long time and also watching their price tags go up. Used to see them for ~$250 a lot of places and now their $380 or better if LGS carries one. Found this one used for $300 and decided it was time. Wife loves to shoot it and we've been shooting it w/ the kids (-5) who love it (all safety considerations taken btw). The CT is a new addition and not sure about it yet.
