Can someone help me?

I recently purchased a Walther P5 from Earl's Gun Repair Service, an authorized Walther dealership in North America.

The invoice says that the particular model I bought was made in 2001.

But in one of my gun books, "Pistols of the World, Fully Revised 4th Edition," P5 production is listed as 1977-95. I could not find this same fact anywhere else in books or online.

I called Earl's Repair Service and asked about this, and I was told that the P5 is still manufactured by Carl Walther Waffenfabrik of Umarex Co. in Germany.

Is this true? Is the P5 still manufactured anywhere?

Does it have a date code on the right side of the frame

there should be 2 letter code
for your gun if it is made on 2001 it should be "AB"......

Yes, there is an "AB" on the right side of the frame.

So it really was produced in 2001?

I heard it before..... P5 and mostly with the P5c.....
