3/28/17 - This is a Mauser made P.38 that was issued to the police in 1944 during World War II. The pistol ihas a minty original finish, with no bluing loss to mention. The only issue is a very small spot of pitting on the right side of the slide. Correct grips and all matching parts. Mirror bore. The magazine in the gun also has a rare phosphate, ribbed follower.
