Walther For Sale

Walther LogoCarl Walther GmbH Sportwaffen was founded in 1886 in Zella-Mehlis or what is Thuringia today, by Carl and Fritz Walther. The company has made major breakthroughs in gun design and production, including the legendary PPK and P99 carried by agent 007 – James Bond. It produced the P38 standard issue sidearm for the German Military in World War II. The company originally produced hunting and target rifles, and it was not until 1908 when the company began making pistols. In 1929, they began making the popular “police pistols” or PP models in .22 long rifles, .32 ACP, and .380 ACP calibers. In 1938, the company was awarded the contract to supply the German Reich with the 9mm P38 960g pistol.  After WWII, the company was reduced to merely a shell company with designs and patents. In 1957, the company resumed production of the P38 to equip the new West German Army. In 1993, the company was bought by Umarex of Arnsberg and they continue to produce guns under the Walther name. 

The company has been supplying military, police and other government security groups in every country because of the reliability and superior quality and craftsmanship. In 1999, Smith and Wesson and Walther, announced a joint partnership to distribute Walther branded firearms and accessories in the US. The company continues to enjoy patronage for its expertise in design and production that have the highest standards of quality and reliability. The current Walther Police Pistol Slim (PPS) model is renowned for its professional lightweight design in either 9mm or .40S&W caliber, with red cocking indicator, an ambidextrous magazine release and professional trigger.

For over a century, the company has focused on innovation and a tradition of technical expertise in the field of sporting weapons for international competition since it first appeared in the Olympic Games. The company uses its extensive experience and knowledge in law enforcement to manufacture guns for police and sporting firearms around the world. As such, the company developed cool designs like the P22 Pistol in Pink Carbon Fiber Finish or the P22 Pistol – Green Digital Camo Finish.
