    All I know is that they were made between the WW's and that the one in the next room is a fine little rifle, as accurate as I can hold with the barleycorn sights.

    Oh, yeah, the Blue Book says $385 for the standard model and $470 for the Champion with checkered pistol grip and adjustable sight in top condition.

    This is an old thread. I just found one of these rifles in the family gun safe. It has been drilled and tapped and has a scope mounted on it (albeit an old old scope...made by apache...). This is one of the heaviest .22's I've ever handled. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of groups I can get with it. I didn't have a .22 rifle, until now.

    If anybody wants one, my 1936 Walther Champion MkV with Redfield Olympic rear sight and 1938 Wollensak 4X target scope on dovetails is for sale at $500 in 90%condition. It is a tack driver but my sons don't seem interested in this classic, out it goes before my widow sells it.

    I've got one that was made in 1937; as far as a target rifle, it's among my favorites. I acquired it from a friend who has a cowboy/military/unique firearms shop well over 10 years ago. Mine has a cobbled-up addition to the rear sight that is definitely non-standard. Mine is the only one I've run across since I purchased it.

    You're absolutely right in that it's heavy, Jerrywahid; it's built like a Munich bank vault door. Mine has 3/8 in rails milled into the top of the receiver. Shortly after I got it I found a nice Weaver V-22 2x6 scope with rings that looks pretty good on it and is fairly authentic to the vintage of the rifle. Lovely honey-colored wood with a fine figure to it. Checkering is still nice and sharp after 60+ years. I do not know how it came to this country, but my suspicion is that it may be a WW2 bringback. Perhaps tomorrow I'll get it out of the safe and take some photos of it to post.
