Hammerli made many very close copies of PP-type target pistols under Walther license in the 1950s and 60s when it was an independent concern in Lenzburg. Hammerli later became a SIG subsidiary for several decades. In later years it produced for SIG a .22 pistol called the Trailside, a long-barreled PP-style target and sport pistol completely redesigned and reengineered to be produced cheaply with new materials and technology. When SIG got out of the gun business Hammerli disappeared for a while, until acquired by Umarex a few years ago.
Haemmerli started to manufacture the successor of the Walther Olympia and Jaegerschaftspistole under license of Walther. The model numbers started at 200 and went on from there until the evolution was pretty much finished with the 208/211. It can all be found in the book by Smith.
