~ 1953-83 Boxed Walther LP 53 Calibre .177/4.5 mm Air Pistol ~
The LP53 (Luft pistole/ Air Pistol) pistol was produced between 1953 and 1983.
It is a .177 calibre air pistol with the same design lines as Walther`s famous .22 LR Olympia target pistol.
The LP53 is made of steel with formed plastic grip panels.
Movie posters for early James Bond films show Bond holding an LP 53 or Olympia pistol instead of his usual service PPK.
This is an excellent example with a great finish to the metalwork and plastic contoured grips with Walther banners.
It has target sights and is stamped on the left side of the frame with the Walther banner and patent detail `LP Mod 53 Cal 4.5 (.177)` together with serial number `116283`.
The pistol functions perfectly and it comes in its original brown cardboard box bearing the Walther LP banner.
The box also contains the original wood cocking aid, cleaning tool, screwdriver, instruction leaflet, oil container, a box with cleaning pellets and a box with spare rear sights.
