New cool gun
Went to Gander Mountain to get some jeans and some powder. Well, I got them, but then I saw this honey and couldn't pass it up for $279!
Walther P1 (German police or Army surplus, not sure which one) with a beat up leather holster, two mags, and a military cleaning kit (not shown). The pistol appears almost unused. In fact, the bore was amazingly clean. I am beginning to suspect it has never been shot. One of the mags (the parkerized one) was in a sealed plastic bag. The other one (blued) has Walther P38 on the side. Is it possible that one magazine is WW2 surplus???
At any rate, didn't get to shoot it today, as it has been pouring all day long. Hopefully tomorrow. The DA pull is fairly heavy, but stages like a revolver, which I like. SA is pretty nice. Range report to follow as soon as I can.

Range report time.
Pistol is very accurate in combat conditions. Once I got used to the difference in trigger pulls, keeping them in a palm size group at 15 yards firing very rapidly was no difficult task.
Even the Euro style mag release is not a big deal once you figure out how to do it quickly. Slide lock, move support hand to butt, snap back mag release with left thumb (this will let the mag pop out about 1"), then use the other four fingers to strip the mag out using the tab at the front of the floorplate. Mag then drops free. Insert new mag, reach over top and do the push/pull.
It fed ball and Winchester Silvertips equally flawlessly.
