Saw this YouTube video tonight. Is this gun legit?

Looks legit to me considering that the Polish Radom shown had the same markings. Hey, Walther was a commercial enterprise so they would sell guns to whomever would place an order.

Dieter's book lists this contract with the same G over 2 in an oval mark, with a larger serial range

As a kid, I read some "boys and girls educational and entertaining stories" magazine from the 1910s and 20s, in which among many other things, was a write-up of the optical works in Jena, in which it was a point of pride that both friend and foe used their field glasses, scopes and targeting devices during the World War.

I was confused when I posted this. I was thinking it was a "Polish made PPK" for some reason...:eek:

In the case of these pistols, one should also remember that in early 1939 when these were likely exported, Poland was not a foe, and actually still a significant trade partner with Germany, especially since the so-called “Customs War” 1925-1934 had been (temporarily) settled.
