Perhaps it is a ruse, tho' somebody went to some trouble over it.
What we know:
-a rimfire .32 Walther is extremely unlikely. Cartridges of the World makes brief mention of a .32 long rimfire, but it was a product of the 1870s, and they have only sporadically been made since.
-the supposed 'firing pin' exits where the signal pin should, and half the relief hole appears to be visible above this pin.
-there is no FP hole in the usual place, but some of the pictures seem to show a shadow of the normal hole.
So, somebody made an FP to exit from the signal pin hole, and partially blocked said hole, and blanked off the actual hole.
Why? Some folks have more time than good sense?

mike9905 is correct. Some big BS on this thread. I started a thread on the unusual high count of new members for this month and they posted some strange stuff.
But, even if the slide/frame numbers are all legit, then Bubba tried to make a 7.65 slide into a rimfire and mangled the FP spring to get it to retract properly. Then sold it to some poor soul who didn't field strip it to see that Bubba out did himself this time.

Runner up is this Bubba job from a Browning forum I belong to. He/it tried mounting a Williams peep site on a vintage SA-22 then sold it to a really poor soul.

Hey bigbirdmqt, if you have that other 7.65 slide that works fine like you stated earlier, then use it even if the #'s don't match. At least you have a firing pistol.
Strip the Bubba slide of all useable parts for spares and use that slide for a paper weight in your office for people to pick up and fondle. Guys can't keep their hands off things like that.

I'm wondering if first bubba put JB weld in the FP hole to make it inoperable (instead of a plug). Then bubba decided to try and fix the job by reaming out the signal pin hole...

I don't think the OP is trying to "fool" us. I think he really is puzzled. That being said the weapon never left the factory in that condition.

Can't speak for the OP, but I'm sure as hell puzzled!
