In 1937 designs for the 9mm Luger were being developed to replace the expensive to produce Luger designs. Walther produced hammerless and external hammer designs which featured their SA/DA trigger, decocker lever, and a loaded chamber indicator on the models that eventually became the P38 when it was adopted by the German army. The P38 when developed, was considered one of the best natural pointing handguns in existence. Walther's open top recoil action permitted the handgun to continue to fire even if an obstruction in the barrel had caused a bulge in the barrel (typically caused by squib loads).

In an interesting side-note to Hitler’s preferred weapon of choice, it should be noted that he actually carried an American revolver for many years. It was a Smith and Wesson Ladysmith model , and he was oftentimes seen carrying the sidearm. He stopped carrying that revolver the day after Franklin Roosevelt declared war on both Japan and Germany following the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. He was then seen with his Walther PPK. Insofar as where those particular weapons may now be located so many years after Hitler’s demise, there are no clear-cut answers. Some theorize that the Russians took possession of the PPK, although they have remained largely quiet on the subject, and it had been bantered about that the Smith and Wesson may have ended up in the hands of an American army colonel. Photographs of a PPK were released by the Kremlin some years ago with the indication that it was indeed the weapon used by Hitler, but proof of its authenticity was never made available.

A revolver is a repeating firearm that has a cylinder containing multiple chambers and at least one barrel for firing. The first cartridge revolvers were produced around 1856. A semi-automatic pistol uses a single chamber and barrel, with a mechanism powered by the previous shot to load a fresh cartridge into the chamber. One round is fired each time the trigger of a semi-automatic pistol is pulled. A derringer is generally the smallest usable handgun of a given caliber. They were frequently used by women, because they are easily concealable in a purse or as a stocking gun. The original cartridge derringers held only a single round, usually a pinfire or rimfire .40 caliber cartridge, with the barrel pivoted sideways on the frame to allow access to the breech for reloading.

Walther's original factory was located in Zella-Mehlis in the " Land " (state) of Thuringia . As that part of Germany was occupied by the Soviet Union following World War II, Walther fled to West Germany , where they established a new factory in Ulm . For several years following the war, the Allied powers forbade any manufacture of weapons in Germany. As a result, in 1952, Walther licensed production of the PP series pistols to a French company, Manufacture de Machines du Haut-Rhin , also known as Manurhin . The French company continued to manufacture the PP series until 1986.
