    How about George?

    Seriously though that appears to be a Walther P-38.

    P38 it should have a steel frame. A P1 has checked grips and alloy frame.

    Most certainly a P-38, but the Germans were pretty anal about markings, so that is strange. Even the late war guns were marked.

    Definitely a Walther type pistol.

    I'd go for Hans or Wilhelm myself, but definitely stay clear of Adolph.

    The issue with german guns as well as russian ones is that durin certian points in the war marking the gun etc went the way of " oh crap here come the russians/germsn , quick learn that out the window and shoot at the them" ....If there is no import markes ( Intearms I know imported some ) then this makes this pre 1968 ( when import marking was mandated ) and from your luger story it might be a bring back if this can be proven with paper work then the vaule is pretty darn good ...

    It's a Walthers P-38/ P1. I've got one just like it, mine is a late 60's German Police model.
    I bought it in late 2013,paid about $269.00 for it. It was imported by PW Arms ,Redmond ,WA.
    It's a joy to shoot,very smooth and accurate, the only problem with it was the front sight
    fell out one day while I was shooting it, luckly I was able to find the damn thing in the dirt
    and reinstalled it with some red Locktite under it, its been fine ever since.
