MINT GERMAN P.38 PISTOL

$1,200.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: G3689

Exceptional example of the standard issue 9mm service pistol used by the Germans in World War II.  Principal markings include: “2257m” (serial number); “cyq” (manufacturer’s code); eagle over “88” (military acceptance stamps); “P.38” (model designation for Pistole 1938).

The condition is exceptional with 99% of the blue remaining; really Like New and Unissued!  The bore is perfect and perhaps only test rounds were fired through it.  The pistol is fully functioning, including the safety de-cocker (which is often broken on P.38 pistols).  All the serial numbers match and the magazine is the correct type for this pistol (P.38 magazines were not numbered to the gun after March 1942).  As designated by the “cyq” manufacturer’s code, the pistol was made by Spreewerk – Werk Grottau.  Spreewerk manufactured 126,980 P.38 pistols in 1944; based on the serial number, this pistol was made in February 1944.

Collectors please note that Spreewerk blued the barrel locking block, a part left in the white on Walther and Mauser produced P.38 pistols.

P.38 pistols in this condition rarely come on the market!  Excellent opportunity to own a collector grade classic German pistol made in early 1944 before the D-Day landings occur!  [SK]
