The variations themselves seem relatively minor. Is there anything really significant in terms of usability or reliability? I am shopping for a P5 and wondered whether I should favor a later variation (I have my eye on a Variation 2 that looks pretty sweet). Thanks!

There are, IMO, no highly-desirable or to-be-avoided variants. The P5 is damned near perfect from start to finish. But be careful, they are highly addictive ;)

I think I got a Dutch Police P5 # 050047 D.

That is the 48th mis-identified P5, started at ser#50000, don't think anyone actually know how many were produced before they corrected the issue.


Issue being Dutch police P5 were ser#s 50000 to 100000 firearm.


D for doppel (double in German).


Still searching for a DD, IDed on frame AND slide.

Nice, very Nice!!

Looking forward to learn more about the details of the guns. Those 7.65 barrels are a pain in the **s to find!

Here's the three "safe queens", The middle one is the Italian Cat 1062 two barrel (7.65 Para/9mmx19 Para). The shooter is on it's way to Texas (from Vermont).

I'll post pics of the group, with details after I get them all in my possession.


Just took delivery of #4 on Monday (a 2nd Var8). Just purchased #5 two hrs ago, a very late production Var8, +95%, unfired after test firing at Ulm, NIB, with all items provided from Walther.


Have my eye's on #6, will know where I stand by next weekend.


Seems like a trend, really nice P5s are moving to Texas.
