I think it is further to the right of the pic, nearer the muzzle.

It is depicted in a James Bond film, the one where the bond girl plays the cello.

That would be The Living Daylights....

And the scene would be when Kara Milovy, played by Maryam D'Abo is about to shoot some VIP and Bond shoots he rifle with his fancy WA2000.... But I don't think you get a very good look at the rifle... :|

I am fairly sure you see Bond fondle with a magazine and cock the rifle before he shoots.

Do you think Walther made so few in order to achieve a high unit price, and a mythical sense of quality, or do you think they simply had little interest from the market?

had it been a little bit cheaper... and not had so many reliability problems... quite a few would have been sold. the bad reputation for reliability in the first modle tarnished the second one to the point that walther stopped making them.. they werent selling.

Max338 is correct, there was little demand for the rifles, and the reputation from the 1st series rifles really hurt them

At that price weapons should have their own mini-factory building homing bullets out of CO2 and releasing oxygen... :|
