The photos are of a Walther Model 4, serial 143031, that I have with the F subcontractor code which I believe was assigned to Christopher Funk in Suhl. The piece is serial number on the frame and slide with the last 2 digits on the nose cap and the bottom of the magazine. It appears that they used the same stamp for the safety and subcontractors ID.

In Jan Still’s Central Powers lists 96005 as having an F code but that serial also appears on a G code gun. The only other F code I have seen is serial 143119 which was listed on Gunbroker in Oct 2007 (sorry the pictures got mixed I was trying to put them in the next post) .

Hello. This being an old thread, I guess I may need to create a new one. I inherited 96005 from my dad and I'm currently researching this really interesting gun, getting prepared to list it at auction. It does indeed have an F code, and your identification of it as a code for Christopher Funk is the first I have seen. Jan Still's description goes on to say it has a gothic C/N military acceptance mark and that the F also appears at the back of the slide. I don't know if my dad reported this information to Jan (they were acquainted, both lived in Alaska), but the last two points are incorrect. It has a C/G and I can find no F at the back of the slide. There is a small partially stamped E on the front of the slide, and a scratch inside the back of the slide that looks like a G. I've attached photos. Do you have a source for the F being assigned to Christopher Funk?

Good question. In the eBook pinned to the top of this forum, the F marking is still listed as unidentified. I have one of the more common JM subcontractor pistols. They are a fascinating area for collecting, with so many variations.
