You know, trying to dig your pictures our of Wiki Commons was not easy. Uploading images to a post on this forum is not difficult. Just click go advanced and then click manage file attachments. Select decent sized images and upload to the forum to make life easier for those trying to help you.

From the images I found on your Wiki contribution, you don't have a pistol used in the Olympics. You have a nice Walther Jägerpistole created by Walther for the new requirements of the German hunting regulations in the late 1930s. The instruction manual states as much: Jägerpistole. I couldn't make out if the pistol serial number is printed on the green tag on the side of the box lid. What is the serial number of your pistol? Perhaps the letter/number combo written on the side of the lid is some kind of inventory number with the letter W indicating a Walther pistol.

Walther made four varieties of the Olympic pistol design for different target shooting situations. Attached is an example of another Jägerpistole in its shooter's case.

The proper name is Jägerschaftspistole. It was used in DJV sanctioned matches.

Andy, I don't know where the Wikipedia author found that name in the English language sources he used, but the name used by Walther to market the pistol was Jägerpistole as you can see on the manual included in the box.

Both names were used. Imo the term Jägerschaftspistole used by DJV was too large (beside a long pistol)...

While the Deutscher Jagdschutzverband may have sanctioned the matches, the örtlichen Jägerschaftsverbände were organising the shoots.

I shot DJV sanctioned matches and the guns used were called Jägerschaftspistolen.

But that was not in 1936 ...

It is not from English language sources. That is how the Walther and its successor, the Hämmerli 212, are known in Germany.
