Material of Walther Pistols

Curious now that the Q5 match SF has hit the market with great reception, I was always curious...what other pistols did walther make in steel? I presume the Model 1-9 were steel, but I'm not sure of the rest of the line going forward.


Just for curiousity's sake, could someone tell me which pistols were in fact steel, aluminum, and polymer? The latter choices are fairly obvious but maybe there's a cool fact I should know about.


Thanks!

Walther Models 1-9 were made of steel. The Models PP and PPK were almost always made of steel with the exception of some that featured a frame of Dural, a type of aluminum, in order to provide a lighter weight.

The wartime P38 is steel; the more recent iterations have alloy lowers and steel action parts. The same thing is true of the P5.

No. The stainless guns were always an American product, and no .22s were ever made this side of the pond.

Current Umarex guns are a different critter.
