Perhaps its a Variation 6: (i) new takedown lever (marked with a four-pointed star) and (ii) a new plunger - serial number is 101K+ but less than 101200. Also star on hammer.

But the trigger stop doesn't appear to be on the trigger. Can't quite make it out, is it above adn to the rear of the trigger - 7th variation?

As I said, I like learning more about Walthers. Looking this up has been educational. One picture to go by and I can't decide where the trigger stop is on this one, so.....

Could this one be a police surplus gun and thus a bit of an amalgam of parts? Although its overall beauty and condition would tend to argue against that as most police surplus guns have holster wear at least.

Dutch should be a big hint. The trigger stop is in the frame.

Then 7th variation made for the Dutch Police who were the largest consumer of P5s with 50K of them out of the ~100K produced.

8Th variation.

But why wasn't mine ever issued and has no police acceptance stamps?

Made for the Dutch contract but not needed and so sold to Earls?
