At this time, the towns of Zella-Mehlis and Suhl were the centres of the German gun industry.
The experience gained over many years of gun manufacture provided Lothar Walther with especial expertise in the production of button-rifled barrels of the highest accuracy.
After the Second World War and the associated move to Baden-Württemberg, Lothar Walther once again chanced a new start in Königsbronn, in the South West of Germany. From the beginning of the 60s, he was supported by his sons.
