Default Unknown Model Walther rifle

Any ideas as to which model rifle this is, and any other info?


It's a single shot with a heavy barrel. Beautiful little rifle.

It looks like some sort of trainer based off the sportmodell, but I'm not that familiar with them.

Based on the "BUG" proofs I believe it Pre-dates the sportmodell.

The stock is a beautiful piece of wood.

This is not the same rifle but the action, barrel and sight look similiar. http://www.gunauction.com/search/dis...temnum=9770390

I think yours is probably much older, maybe from the 30's or 40's. Nice piece and I would guess its pretty valuable. Also if I were you I would not modify it in any way, wouldn't even refinish the stock as either would reduce value if it's as old as I think it is.

I have no idea.

But these threads are always a lot of fun.

Can't wait to see what the resident Walther expert has to say--or the best sleuth, for that matter.

These threads are fun. I've found pics of Walthers with every single part less the distinctive bolt. Earl's doesn't have it listed but I bet they'd know.

While I cannot identify the model from the pics it was made before 1945, denoted by the Walther address, Zella Melhis ceased to exist for Walther at the end of the war. One proofmark i saw looks like an "eagle N" which was used up until may 1940, after that a different proofmark was used, hope this helps.

It looks like Walther Model V Champion rifle from mid 1930's. It is my understanding, that Walther had a few modifications made in the course of production of this rifle.

Here is similar model. http://classic.gunauction.com/search...temnum=8612201

Beat me to it. Walther Model V. Appears to be a standard model. The Champion, or "Meisterbusche" Model V had a micrometer adhustable rear sight.
Nice gun. How does it shoot? I have a couple pre-war German rimfires like this and the sights are dead on with standard velocity ammo.

You may have to login/join to see the pics, but it's worth it. Gunboards is a great resource.


@kendog: The modell Vs I've seen all have a standard looking bolt, not that funky thingy.

I think the one similarity of early Walthers is they are all a little different!
