Splashinator Water Pistol

Splashinator Water Pistol is a Chinese-manufactured (by PMS) plastic water pistols modeled (with a certain attention to details) after Walther P38 which is available in various color schemes (and can possibly even be re-painted to achieve a rough prop standing for P38). The most known version is a yellow one with blue grips (some sources state that the version used was originally with orange grips re-painted by crew) which was used in the cult British TV series Doctor Who and therefore became valuable and recognizable to fans and collectors of memorabilia.

Is there any film/game that features the P1 (instead of the P38)?

It's virtually impossible to tell the two apart just by looking at them, since the main difference is just the material the frame is made of. So I wouldn't doubt that some are P1s, depending on where the show was filmed. I think a few P4s might have been used, which have a slightly shorter barrel. But it's hard to tell for sure, since it's not that big of a difference. Again this would depend on where it was filmed. As far as games go, all games using the P38 style pistol are WWII games, so they'd be P38s by default. And I don't think anyones going to make a 1960-70s first person shooter about germany, that the Vietnam War era. --Zurak 47 10:05, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

The game No One Lives Forever takes place in the late '60s, some of its levels are set in East Germany and the P38 is used throughout, it appears to be a standard one with wood grips though. --MattyDienhoff 10:08, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

DAS Boot

But the real Walther HP (The real name of the Walther P-38 had P-1 style grips. So in Das Boot that can correctly be a Pre WW2 HP. Sabbathmusic


I just wonder why it doesn't qualify for a sub-section? It is a replica that can be re-painted or otherwise used and it was used in a Tv series we have a page for... --Kloga (talk) 11:38, 28 December 2013 (EST)
