Default Model 41 EFS German Import

Here is my latest model 41 Extendible Front Sight (EFS)!





I could tell by the addition of proof marks that this model 41 had spent time in Germany. In front of the serial number is a Nitro proof, 68, and an antler. The barrel and the slide also are stamped with a Nitro proof. The 41 was "Proofed" in Ulm as signified by the antler in 1968.



While cleaning the 41 I also found the importer's stamp "WAFFEN-WALTHER BAD DÜRKHEIM" under the left grip panel.

I have a model 60 imported from Germany and it has those same proof
marks. My 41 does not have them, but shoots amazingly well.
