The P4 was the first variant of Walther's famed P38, a redesign to make the pistol conform to Germany's new requirements for police sidearms. The P4 barrel is cut back by 1 inch and the pistol is fitted with an automated firing pin safety and decock-only lever. Otherwise identical to the P38, the weapon is robust, accurate and well balanced and field stripping and maintenance are simple and rapid. The P4 uses a double action trigger design similar to that of the earlier Walther PPKs, and a loaded chamber indicator is also incorporated. The fixed-barrel design mechanism operates by use of a wedge-shaped locking block underneath the breech. This pistol features synthetic grips, a windage adjustable rear sight, and an 8-round magazine. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
