3/22/19 - 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 phoshpate parts. The finish on this pistol shows muzzle and edge thinning, finish loss on the top plate and some patina on the front strap. Minty bore. Nice grips, though they do have a few scuffs and scratches.
