Smile Walther 22 LR model 1 or 2 ?

Hi there. My name is Roger from Sweden ,
I would be very glad if some of you clever guys could help me out with this .
I have an old Walther Nitro 22 LR semi auto rifle model 1 or 2 ?.
how can I see the difference? maybe on the stamps?
What I have heard,its maybe from the time of 40s or 50s.

On the left side of the pipe there is a sign:Nitro, and a Crown stamp with a "N".
On the right side there is 3 separate crowns with one letter under each crown :B-G-U, and under all that it is stamped: 54r/?

Hope you can help me out. I would like to upload a photo or so, but I don't know how to do, thank's

Hi Roger from Sweden. Welcomen!

The Model 1 is more of a Karabine with smaller forestock and simple sights. The Model 2 has nicer sights and checkering. Here is an example of the Model 1 in this thread on this forum.

I am sure if you search you will find more images of both models.

Yes that is a Model 2 with the addition of a very large scope. The production ran from the 1930s though the early war years. Your rifle should have a proof on the receiver: crowm over N indicates it was produced and proofed before January 15, 1940. Eagle over N, after that date.

Thanks for your answer. Now I know more than I can wish for.
I was pleased and a little surprised that it was so old. I'm happy with it and it works very well. I got it for 100 dollar and i think that was a nice price. Many thanks //Roger

A very nice price Roger. Careful with the magazine. They are VERY hard to come by. And be careful with your choice of ammo when using the semi-auto mode. I had a bolt break off using .22 lr ammo in the semi auto mode.

Hi Joe, I have just had the same thing happen, breaking the left guide of the breach. What did you do to repair your's.
Cheers
