A further development of the famous Walther P-38 pistol, the Walther P-5 had been developed in 1979 on request by German Police for safe police sidearm. The pistol incorporates many new at the time design features, including a new aluminum alloy frame, trigger mechanism, dual-control mechanism, and firing pin safety. The P5 uses a system in which the barrel does not tilt following firing in the way that John Browning's system does, but rather moves straight back approximately 5 mm, resulting in a very accurate pistol since the barrel is kept parallel with the frame during and after firing. The trigger bar disconnector disables the firing unless the slide in fully closed, allowing the firearm to be carried in condition two. This double-action pistol features a white dot front sight with a white bar rear, a decocking lever, and an 8-round magazine. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
