Walther TPH

Just bought a gun that I have wanted for a long time. It is a Walther TPH 22! It is new in the box with all the paperwork and comes with 2 Walther magazines. Price was $525 including shipping! Here are a couple of pics:

Range report will be forthcoming!

walther tph

My favorite pocket gun. You will have lots of fun with the little guy. If you have any problems, try CCI mini-mags. That is my go to ammo in testing pocket size pistols. Dave

Beautiful little pistols. Keep us posted on how it shoots. I looked at an old one years ago, it was in good shape, no box, one mag and they still wanted $500. 1917

TPH 22

I picked up the little Walther at my LGS today. As thought, it is new, in the box with the owner's manual and the test target. The test target is dated April of 1998 so I assume that is close to the time it was made. I was surprised to see that the test target was shot at 15 yards! The target has 3 bullet holes, all in or near the center of the target. I suppose that shooting the same model pistol all day, every day will eventually help the shooter to be a crack shot! Will post a range report as soon as possible. Oh, it did come with two original Walther mags!

Yup, Mini-mags. I put wood grips on mine they fill my hand a bit more.

Mine needed smoothing/de-burring of the internal parts to be 100%.

I also stoned-scraped some sharp edges on the exterior.

Fun gun to shoot, just watch for the slide hitting the web of your hand.

They have a reputation for malfunctioning. If it does try CCI Stingers and if that doesn't work private message me and I will try to dig up the name of a smith (I recall him in NH) who works on Walthers who can get it running for you. He is getting older and his son or grandson might be working there now. Good guy whose word and work are dependable. The ability to have a second strike on a failure to fire helps a lot.

If you want a holster try Ken Null. His work is excellent and can provide a TPH holster. Mr. Null is getting older too so reach out to him sooner than later.

My guess is your TPH might have brought $500 to $600+ on an auction site and the extra Walther manufactured magazine between $70 and $100.

The way the safety works should provide comfort although some will probably say the safety is not necessary on this type of pistol if handled correctly.

The plastic bottom to the magazine tends to break after significant use. You can still buy them on eBay for about $9. Buy a couple and be ready for the eventual break and abile to repair a hundred dollar magazine. There is a metal piece on the inside of this plastic part that buying another for the eventual breakage also makes sense.

Keep it clean and well oiled and hope you got a good one that works perfectly. Even if it doesn't the smith I mentioned can fix it up for you.



Almost forgot that the grips tend to crack which doesn't make much difference but you can still get a NOS replacement on eBay to keep it looking sharp.

I bought one in 1991. The manual said to use regular velocity ammo but mine wants high velocity. The slide is sharp! Be warned!
