Walther P38 "Secret Agent" Pistol Gun Model Kit

 

Walther P38 pistol

 

This is an AHM Matz Walther PPK / P38 "Secret Agent" pistol. Normally I wouldn't get a gun model, but this was a good addition to my growing James Bond kits.

I am guessing the kit is an Asian release. The US banned toy guns being made in black, they had to be made in neon colors to prevent accidental shootings (a smart idea). That's why you see so many squirt guns in neon colors.

This kit doesn't really say James Bond on it, but hey, if it's a secret agent theme, you get the idea. And it is a Wather / P38.

The kit appears to be life size 1.1 scale.This one includes a silencer, which of course, every secret agent shouldn't be without.

In the James Bond movie Dr. No, Bond receives the Walther to replace his Beretta (which, according to "M", had jammed on him previously).

Did you know?: In the 3rd film, Goldfinger , this is where Bond starts asking for his martinis "shaken, not stirred". This line was not used in Ian Fleming's books, but was added to Goldfinger because Smirnoff (yeah, THAT Smirnoff, the Vodka folks) sponsored having their product in the movie (in one scene, you can see cases of Smirnoff being loaded onto a truck). So of course, a vodka martini ended up being Bond's drink of choice.

It was Sean Connery's great acting delivery of the famous line that made it exactly that: famous.

The Walther isn't known for a being particularly great gun, and would probably be largely unheard of it is wasn't made famous by the Bond franchise.
