Walther P1 9mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

An aluminum frame and checkered grip panels are the obvious changes between the German army's P1 and the WWII P38. But for some scrapes and scratches on the frame, this gun was essentially new. For the price, we thought it to be a great buy for a really good 9mm pistol. Collectors prefer the wartime or prewar P38s, but shooters will be well served with the P1.

Imposing, but still a 9mm, the big P1 was fun to shoot. Both guns had horrible DA pulls, but acceptable SA ones. This one had some creep, but shot well.
