The P38 firearm was made famous as the German army sidearm during WWII. This CO2 BB gun by Walther is a faithful replica and will be a fun plinker. This full metal pistol is powered by CO2 and has a removable barrel for a different look.

Walther P38 Features
  • Uses a 12-gram CO2 cartridge
  • Semi-Automatic
  • 20 Round Drop-free BB magazine
  • Blowback action
  • Removable barrel
  • Fixed front & rear sights
  • 2-stage non-adjustable trigger
  • Manual safety
  • Textured Synthetic Grips

The owner's manual shows you how to remove the barrel. Do NOT take any further action than that. Do NOT remove the slide. There's a very long, narrow spring that will quickly and suddenly pop out. If you lose that spring, the gun will not function as intended. The importer does not carry replacement springs if you lose your spring this will not be covered under warranty.

Handsome pistol.....very poor performance
December 4, 2019
I regret having to score the Walther P38 low but the performance of the pistol was very disappointing. 1. It misfired often. 2. BB's would stick in the barrel requiring a rod to displace. 3. The slide had to be manually racked many times during the course of a 20 shot magazine. 4. The gun would shoot consistently to the left, an inch or more. The preceding problems begin to occur almost immediately (had fired only two CO2 cartridges).

Have returned the pistol for an exchange.

ProsA look and feel of the pistol was very impressive. A treat to handle.
ConsSee opening comments.

Very nice replica. At 10 yards
it is very accurate and will
spin a tin can around. Trigger
pull was stiff at first but a
little silicone spray and use
freed it up nicely. Happy with
this purchase!
ProsVery nice replica. I have been collecting air guns for my grandsons to have some day. Great addition to have in the German collection.
ConsAs I stated trigger pull was a little stiff at first. A couple squirts of silicone, and use it freed up nicely.
Best UsesTarget/plinking. Great replica for a collection.

I have the real thing, side by side they look very close.
ProsHolds air pressure well, trigger is not bad for a replica. A fun gun to shoot.
ConsPlastic grips don't look real. Battle worn finish would help the looks.

Excellent Replica! Great for Recreation and Plinking!

A WWII legend made affordable for all to enjoy!
ProsRealistic markings, operation, size, and similar heft. FPS & CO2 consumption is average for a blowback. Groupings are very well centered (tested at 20ft.). Nice, snappy blowback action. Great build quality.
ConsDO NOT completely field strip this gun! There's a small spring that's part of the slide assembly that will fly out if you remove the slide. Airgun Depot themselves have mentioned this, so please refrain from doing it unless you're 100% certain it won't be an issue to put back together. The trigger is a tad heavy for a single action pistol, but overtime it will break in and get lighter. Isn't full blowback, the slide only travels about half the way. Nitpick: No decocker like the original, and no full size drop-out magazine. For others to know: The finish on this piece is very glossy, that may turn off a few from buying. However, the new 2016 WWII P38 is much more alike to the finish you'd see on a worn one.

Great replica. It feels right in my hand

Great gun. Very nice details. Accuracy is good for what it is. Too bad that it does dot have double action. I got a surplus P38 holster for a wall display. It fits perfectly.
ProsExcellent details
ConsToo bad it's not double action
By Paul B.
It is outstanding.
February 19, 2015
The finish and fit is perfect, accuracy is unbelievable, and the action functions perfectly.
ProsBBs penetrated 3" in raw potato.
ConsTrigger pull was just over 10 lbs., but after shooting it a lot and leaving the hammer cocked when not in use it has now dropped down to 6.2 lbs. I love the gun.

In the box it's a beauty
July 4, 2013
This is a beautiful pistol! It was fun for the first few magazine loads. After that, I started having problems. Not enough to send the gun back, but in retrospect, I should have. First problem: If I hesitated at the last moment on the trigger pull just before it tripped, I got a "no fire" with a round dribbling out the barrel or I'd get a "fizzle" sounding shot with no power behind it. I learned not to do that any more.

The second major problem occurred when I disconnected the barrel. For some reason, when I pulled the slide back it separated from the frame and out popped a little spring. After several attempts to get the spring back and some warranty ending scratches to the frame, I finally got it working again.

Maybe it was just my turn to get a gun with problems right out of the box or just a fluke. I should mention that out here on Maui everything costs an arm and a leg to ship from the mainland (I know Boo hoo! I know. Look where I live!). I try to fix what I can.

On the positive side. I Had a good learning experience and I have lost not confidence in your products overall.
ProsNice looking gun. Good blow back action when it works. Good feel and balance.
ConsDid a lot of research on this gun. For the price I'm a little disapointed. The trigger difficulty, the slide problem, and I should mention the magazine loading design. You spend a lot of time chasing bbs that pop throgh the loading port. I recommend holding a stiff piece of cardboard behind it.
