12/9/19 - This is a rare Nazi Mauser P.38 from 1945, with all phosphate parts. It is "svw 45" marked on the slide, of which there were only 15,000 such pistols issued to the German Army. A much smaller portion of that lot has all phosphate parts. The finish on the gun shows some minor thinning throughout, so it's a little tough to rate, but there's no major areas of wear or patches of finish loss. All matching numbers. Terrific bore. Grips are in good shape but do have some scratches on both sides.
