Carl Walther GmbH Sportwaffen or Walther is a German arms manufacturer. For more than 100 years, Walther made major breakthroughs in the development of pistols. Some are legendary, like the PPK and the P99 - both pistols carried by the fictional character James Bond - and the P38, the standard-issue sidearm of the German military in World War II.
