According to that monster Walter Book I have, 1999 was the last Year of Production, as they came out with that Plastic Hammerless Toy that Year. Knowing that the P.88 was the last real Walther, I would like to know the very last year, I read somewhere else it was before 1999? I also recall in a 1984 Gun Magazine seeing the Pistol Previewed 4 Year's before it came out. It is sad in my Opinion they stopped making this fine Pistol to make a toy!(never have been with the Glock Clones Crowd) Even Sadder is the fact that James Bond never carried one!!!
