Walther Model 5

The Model 5 was 4.25" long. Magazine capacity was eight rounds.

In 1913, Walther brought out the Model 5. The Model 5 was little more than an updated and revised Model 2, and was also chambered for the 6.35mm Browning. The Model 5 demonstrated higher standards of manufacture and finish than the Model 2, and indeed was the first small Walther pistol to garner international attention and acclaim. As with the earlier guns, the Model 5 was blowback operated, with an enclosed slide and a knurled barrel bushing that served as both takedown latch and recoil spring retaining nut. Earlier versions of the Model 5 had no sights, just a sight groove milled into the top of the slide, while later versions had fixed front and rear sights.
