One of the most interesting Walther pistols is the P38-K. The “K” is an abbreviation for the German word Kurz which translates to “short”. The model designation P38-k suggests that the pistol is a P38 with a shorter barrel. On first sight the P38k also looks like a P38 with a shorter barrel. However, the P38k is in fact comparable to a Walther P4 platform. The “safety lever” of the P38 is bifunctional; (1) it is used as a safey and (2) it is a decocking lever. The “lever” on the P38k and the P4 are decocking levers only. No external safety is present on the P38k and the P4. Production of the P38-k started in 1974 and continued up to 1981. Only 2600 pistols were produced and the serial numbers are all within the range of 500000 – 502600. The pistol shown here is a very early production from 1974. The serial number is 500035 and indicates that it was the 35th P38k ever produced. It has a few characteristics that are not observed on the majority (later production) of P38k pistols and is therefore considered as a prototype.
