    does S&W own walther?

    been reading some posts that have this implication
    i knew S&W imports for Walther but do they own them or what is the relationship?

    No, they do not own them. They are the official importer into the US. Walther used to use Interarms. Now they use S&W. For whatever reason, they don't want to establish their own official presence here in the US, like Sig and Glock have.

    S&W builds the PPKs for Walther. And, they also did a few P99s a few years ago, but there was apparently some quality control issues. So, all the P99s are imported from Germany again.

    Now, the SW99 and SW990 - Walther makes the frame and S&W makes the slide and barrel.

    Shipwreck is correct, they are just the US liaison and importer for Walther.

    Regards~

    ah ha
    so that is why some people are still posting items in their threads that they won't get a walther because they think that s&w is still making them

    yea - i'm glad they aren't making them either
