4/25/17 - This is an original WW2 production P.38 made by Spreewerk. Judging by the serial number, this pistol was made in late 1943. The pistol overall has a beautiful original blued finish with only very minor wear. The largest area of wear is the thinning on the front strap. The pistol has all original parts and is fully functional. The grips are original dark brown bakelite material with no cracks or chips. The bore is rated at 8.5 out of 10, meaning there are strong lands and grooves, with only minor surface wear. The magazine is correct for the pistol as well. Guaranteed original.
