I know some would have preferred to leave it like it was but I wanted it to be nice considering I had to replace 2 parts.

Sad and both interesting.

There is very little to no documentation, most of the Walther factory documentation was either destroyed or hauled off by the Russians after the US Army captured the factory and made off with a good deal of the production. There is no record of Walther factory material in US archives. So most information comes from circumstantial info.

I chatted with someone who stated he had a conversation with a Portuguese researcher who advised him of a cache of Walther Mod 2 rifles in the early 41000 range purchased by a shooting club in Portugal in the early 1930s. That would include this rifle by serial number.
