I bought this a few days ago from a pawn shop. Had never seen one before so I had to have it. Turns out it is a Walther Model 1, which was the first auto pistol made by them. S/N is 2263 out of nearly 30,000 made in several variations, this is the first variation. Having trouble researching it though - only one decent article about them on the web, and none for sale............ What do you guys think ??? Any value opinions ?

Interesting! I can't recall seeing this model before. Strictly a collectors' piece. My now year-outdated Blue Book reflects a price range for the Model 1 as $250 @ 60% to $895 @ 100%. A notation states that it was made from 1908 to 1909 and was succeeded by a second, almost identical model. That's all the handy information I have available. Quite possibly a forum more specialized to handguns, and particularly to such as Walthers, could yield better results. Good luck!
My take.
