Walther TPH for sale
The Walther TPH is blow-back operated and does not have a breech locking system. The barrel is fixed to the frame and fits tightly in the slide so that no bushing is needed. The recoil spring is assembled around the barrel and is retained and compressed by the slide such that no bushing is necessary. Unlike the Walther TP, with its open-top slide, the TPH has an enclosed breech with an ejection window. The extractor is a L- shaped piece of steel which is spring supported and positioned in a groove on the right side of the frame beside the striker. Similar to the Walther TPH, the ejector is positioned on the left side of the breech block behind the magazine well and the connector runs externally on the right side of the frame, beneath the right grip plate. The one-piece firing pin and the striker spring protrude through the safety arbor and are hold in position by it. There is a break-trough on the left side of the slide where the safety lever, which is fixed to the arbor, is positioned. It has a 60-degree turn similar to the late PPK models, with down as the safe position and up as the firing position simultaneously showing a red mark.
Walther TPH for sale
The West German made Walther TPH is rare and highly collectible due to the passage of the 1968 Gun Control Act ( GCA ) which prohibited pistols with short barrels being imported into the US. With fixed contrast sights with a raised matte rib and a highly polished deep blue finish with a steel slide and alloy frame. The grips are black checkered plastic with the Walther logo positioned in a banner on the lower half of each side. The left side of the slide is marked, “Carl Walther Waffenfabrik Ulm/Do./WALTHER (inside a banner) Model TPH Cal. 22l.r.”. The right side of the slide is marked “INTERARMS/(starburst image)/ALEXANDRIA VIRGINIA”, followed by the serial number over “MADE IN GERMANY”. The serial number is also stamped on the right side of the frame, along the forward edge of the right grip panel near the base of the trigger guard. German proof marks are visible on the barrel, as well as behind the slide serrations on the right side. Complete in original factory brown “wood-grain” style box with affixed model/serial number end label, two extra German made blue finger-extension .22LR magazines ( these magazines are no longer manufactured by Walther and are becoming very hard to find under $100 ), extra .22 LR barrel, original TPH owners manual, black plastic cleaning rod and test target.
