    A fella today offered me an unfired German import Walther TPH and reading through postings here I see the American made ones can be at least problematic if not an outright waste.

    This is as I said the German one with box, rod and two magazines, aside from the potential finickiness in ammo, what's the general concensus regarding value of these?

    I like Walthers, don't fear the "Walther bite" and am not too concerned about the 90 dollar magazines.

    Any perspective?

    Oh, kinda naming my price but he's a pal and I don't care to hose him on it as far as perceived value is concerned though I don't care to throw money away either.

    Buy. Now. And if you don't want it, I'll offer $800 for it.

    What caliber? The .22lr will fetch about $1000. If it's a .25acp it is worth more. I've seen them sell for $1800. They are well made guns, very thin, very light. I have stainless in both calibers, and they are reliable.

    Oops, forgot to say, it's a .22.
    Thanks for the input fellas and the enthusiasm for the pistol as well.

    The TPH has always been a little bit too pricey for my tastes but the ones I have seen are very well made and very much in demand. If you can get one (especially in mint condition), for a decent price, I would say go for it. If you don't like it I'm sure you could easily turnaround and get your money back out of it.

    I had a .22 cal. German made TPH years back.
    Function was flawless, fit/finish quite good.

    Being in .22L.R. cal. I think it could be a ton of fun at the range knowing the incredible accuracy reputation of this little pistol.
