    This is a interesting overview of the various Walther target pistols produced in the Interwar period. I was familiar with Walther's various police and military handguns, but not so much these. Anyway, I found the video neat, so thought I'd pass it along. Cheers.

    My Olympia, documented as one used in the 1936 Olympic Games, and totally complete with two matching magazines, all the weights and a spare set of grips, now resides in the National Collection co-located with the Royal Armouries in Leeds, Yorkshire, England, after I handed it in back in late 1997.

    They paid me a LOT of money for it, which made me feel a little bit better, but not much.

    Also handed in at the same time was my Jurek Free Pistol, serial #2. Also for a LOT of money.

    If I can find the 35mm pics over the next few days, I'll copy and post them for you.
