There are many potential sources for old and obsolete gun parts --mostly used-- other than Numrich. You just have to be patient and learn where to ask.

A fellow forum member sent me a PM asking for specific names. Apart from Tom Heller and Numrich, who already have been mentioned, here's a list --in no particular order--that I quickly assembled from cards of people I have met and/or had dealings with over many years. I don't pretend that this list is up-to-date (some of them may be out of business or perhaps even deceased). I have provided a few phone numbers and/or websites for the less well-known ones, as well as the states of location. Those who are still active probably can be easily located using Google.

Most of them do not specialize in Walthers in particular, and a few are strictly longshots. The majority do not have lists or catalogs. Don't be surprised if they don't have some particular part, but you have to ask. Do your homework first so you can ask for the part by its correct name; don't waste everyone's time trying to describe a "thingy".

And of course, most gunshows will have one or two old-timers with trays full of old greasy parts. Introduce yourself and get to know these people. Leave them a "wants" list. Most of them are intimately familiar with their inventory and if you can identify exactly what you are looking for, you can sometimes strike gold.

Once in a blue moon, I also may have some part that you need, but I'm not in the business and you have to be patient.

P.S. This list really needs some industrious soul to go methodically through it to bring it up to date, make deletions and corrections as needed (I'm not disposed to invest more time in it). Others will doubtless have sources to add; feel free to do so.

I have dealt with a couple of these guys Mike and Blue Ridge (Phil) has quite a supply of various magazines. No 22 stuff at the moment, but does have 32 and 380.

Thanks for this information. Finding parts for our guns can be like a scavenger-hunt and I think we always appreciate hearing about where all the hiding places are.

Thanks greatly, MGMike and Sarge; this is a terrific member service and an instant Sticky. Nicely done.

And, of course, if you know of other sources that are not mentioned or referenced here, by all means add them to the list.

Another one I found while searching for parts was Poppert's Gun Parts Main Menu I don't know how they are to deal with, but they do list Walther PP and PPK parts.
