Hi,Can you attach a couple of pictures of your gun? Use the paper clip icon. I have never heard of "Walman", do you mean Walther? Tom

If you do a simple google search for what's on the slide, you'll see pictures.

Hi,Walman is the Model, not the manufacturer. It was made from 1908 to 1926 by Francisco Arizmendi in the Eiber region of Spain. Many of the guns made in this region are copies of existing guns, this one is similar to a 1908 Colt. The quality of the steel is not the best, ***** ***** left a lot to be desired. Spanish made guns have a letter code for the date of manufacture, look by the proof marks and around the serial number for 1 or 2 letters. Starting in 1955 a letter/number combination was used for some years. Value in excellent condition is $250, very good is $200, good is $125, fair is $60 and poor is $35.Your gun looks to be in the $60 to $100 range. Tom
