8/2/21 - This is an excellent example of a dual-tone Mauser P.38 issued to the Nazi police force in 1944. It is all matching and has the proper "Waffen 135" and police "Eagle F" proofs. It gets its dual-tone appearance from a blued barrel and phosphate slide and frame. These finishes are difficult to rate, but we estimate it has retained about 97%. There is minor wear on the high edges of the slide and around the muzzle. Just a hint of thinning on the front strap. Spotty discoloration on the phosphate parts (typical). Comes with excellent grips and a rare "U" marked magazine. Stone-mint bore. De-cocker is functional.
