Walther Sportmodell V

Post by johnbhm »

First post if you don't count my introduction. Thought I would start with my Spormodell V. These are very well built guns at just over 9 lbs. with scope its a heavy gun. Manufactured around 1935 it has an adjustable trigger that uses a roller to make it extremely smooth.

The rear sight is graduated to 200 meters and has a spring loaded plate that can be rotated between a v and u shaped notch. The scope is a correct period 2 1/2 power with original Akah mounts.

What a great rifle. Many makers were producing very high quality .22LR rifle during that time period in Germany for shooting sports as well as military training.
I have the Mauser version with a Fecker 4X scope. Rear sight is identical.

Very nice. I’ve heard nothing but good about the german and czech .22 trainers of the pre/post war era. I have a low end czech rifle and even with the rudimentary sights is amazing how well it shoots and the quality of the manufacture. and i really like the schnabel fore end.

I have a DSM34 made by GECO that is a keeper. Open sights only, as this was closer to a K98K and Germany was getting a little less inconspicuous about rearmament.
