10/16/19 - This is a rare early Walther P.38, marked and known as the Mod HP or M/39, that was part of the second Swedish contract order for these pistols. There were only about 500 of this variant produced, all in April of 1940. This pistol has very nice, early high polish finish that rates around 95%. The condition is somewhat difficult to grade as there are many very tiny surface scratches on the slide, which is surprisingly common on these guns. There's also light finish loss on the edges of the slide, as well as on the muzzle. The front strap similarly shows minor finish loss / thinning. The bore has wear towards the muzzle-end, and this is mostly patina / roughness in the grooves. The rifling is excellent, 7/10 overall on the bore. The grips are original and correct.
