Was just talking yesterday about beginning a search for one.
For a couple of reasons I didn’t “pull the trigger” here and am posting for general interest.

EDIT: Sorry bout that. Pic looks very poor uploaded here.

Appears to be a P5 (not a P5C) "Cat 1062" 2 barrel package. Made for the Italian market. The 7.65 Para (30 Luger) barrel SHOULD have the Serial # that matches the frame and slide, the 9mm barrel should have NO serial number. Would bet it has no import marks too.


Some classic Walther collector needs to grab this, not many produced/released with both barrels. Price is good too.


How do I know?.......

Sorry about that. The “C” was from me.
Not a P5 expert but I thought the compacts (“short barrels”) were C.
Good price eh? Maybe I’ll take a closer look at it then.
Thanks!

^^^^Ha, that's only if you got there before me. :D

Duke, pick that one up.....before someone realizes what and where it is. The price is not a super good price, but its not unrealistic either. Either way, if/when you decide to sell it, I'm sure you'll be able to get your money back or more than likely, make a little.

My cash reserves have not quite recovered after buying the P7, PPK .22, and C96 a month or so ago or I would be on that one. I'd love to shoot it in .30 Luger.

Wow, Cabela's needs to review procedures with their Gun Library staff.


Went out to the Ft Worth location Saturday (mentioned I've purchased a few classic firearms from that location), wanted to transfer to Ft Worth location (pay $25 fee), talk price and get details on the P5 (Is it import marked? Are the 2 Walther mags original to gun (marked 9x19/7.65Para)? Any feed ramp wear? Any frame rail deformation from the dropping lock block?.....So many questions!).
Was told I need contact the Cabela's where the firearm is currently located to pay the $25 transfer fee, also to direct all questions to them. Emailed the gun location Sunday (provided my cell# in the email, in case someone wanted to talk gun details).
Got an email reply Monday, was informed there are no import marks, and I need to talk price and arrange transfer (pay $25 fee) with the Ft Worth location.


Life is too short. I don't do "run around".
