Pistol Magazines

Vest Pocket Magazine

In 1908, Cart Walther founded his famous line of pistols with the .25 cal. Model 1. This little vest-pocket gun, although well made, shows none of the ingenious design features found in later Walther pistols. The safety catch is a cross button, awkward to operate, and the takedown system leaves much to be desired. Apparently it was difficult to sell or manufacture, for in 1909 it was super-seded by the more compact Model 2.

Model 1 magazines are well made but have little to set them apart from other .25 cal. pistol magazines. The best point of recognition is the thick floorplate with checkering on the end, as shown.

Also the magazine catch notch is deeper and much higher up on the back strap than usual.—E. J. H0FFSCHMIDT
