Thanks for the fast response, Peter. You are correct, the Zubringer is called follower in English.

I see that the Norinco mag has the lips in the same shape as the Hämmerli magazines, the loading button is also working the slide stop on the Hämmerli but is positioned lower than on the Walther mags.
The Walther PP has the slide stop operated by the follower and therefore has the magazine lip on the left side cut lower.
When you compare the quality of the magazines in your photos, the original Walther mag does look to be much better made.

This is just an interesting technical detail since the magazine shapes are pretty identical and I am doing a completely unscientific research on magazine-compatabilty in different guns, like the Walther P88 mags that can be substituted with Beretta 92 mags that are slightly modified.

And likeso often before, I have changed the nature of this thread and am apologizing for it!

Nice choice for a starter. Now work on that trigger discipline, especially with rounds in the gun!

I think I have about 1,500 rounds through it now. Always clean & oil it after every use.

I've been pestering the Waltherforums board a long time about this particular pistol and its oddities and price. Got it from Simpson Ltd and I think I got a fair deal on this (considerably under $500 for this 22LR chambering). Bore is advertised as "excellent" (they use "as-new"...."excellent"...and "very good" in decending order.) They said this is dependent upon the person doing a quick peek inside ("as received"...often dirty)... before they list and catalogue the gun as it is received. No real "method". I cleaned the piece and found easily an "as-new" barrel inside. A nice and unexpected "plus"

The white "blob" on the frame right side, above the trigger guard...was an epoxy-filled gouge, and not a bluing imperfection as I had thought. In another thread on WaltherForums, I mention how I used a razor blade to get this absolutely flat and with no discontinuity with the surrounding metal, and that I used a "Sharpie" pen and a quick wipe to get a *perfect* (surprisingly good) blend with the surrounding metal and satin/matte bluing of the frame.

The rear grip panel that I thought was warped (another thread there)....turns out not to be warped at all. The cross-pin that holds the "extended" plug for the hammer strut/spring..... was not driven in flush with the frame. The not-flush pin protrusion caused the grip to show a gap. Another quick fix...so far 2 out of 3-4 necessary fixes were quickly done within the first day of ownership !

So...all that remains (other than the question of hard-chroming this piece, or leaving the worn bluing).... is to see where the POA is for this gun, and go after those tall sights. Whether POA ( point-of-aim) is "on" or not....there is enough height both front and rear to either correct the situation, or to bring both heights down equally if it shoots where I want it to hit. May also "melt" or round off the sharp tall corners of the rear sight. No issues....maybe we won't chase down special sights afterall... after we get this matter cleared-up (another thread I started on WaltherForums, about aftermarket, small adjustable sights).

Here are the photos from my photobucket.... including a scan of the original ad from Simpson at the very end (they took the ad down recently and it can't be opened from their site anymore)....to see the original white epoxy fill-in of the gouge in the frame. For reference to an "after" pic of this area after my fix....see jpg numbers ending in 51, 56, and 59. Incredibe. My fast temporary fix completely hides this.

I also wasn't sure how I'd like the "extended" mag with both an extended finger rest AND extension of the grip, but it feels great. I separately bought 2 new mags from a website in Europe (flat and normal extended finger rest...so then I'll have 3 styles). I also found (off all things !!! ) a "normal" flat hammer/spring support on an auction.... that does not "protrude" like this one ( I won! I was the only bidder !)...so I can easily use any of the 3 mags...all giving a different look and overall pistol size with each mag.

Here are the pics.... you should be able to open, and then click on each for an enlargement.

Original 1965 kkj-t, with sporter weight barrel, super light trigger adjustment, factory Prone Stock, have the original sights for it too. Special order from the factory. Absolute delight to shoot, single shot.
