7/10/20 - This is a rare Nazi issued P.38 from 1945 that was made at the French Mauser factory. There were only 15,000 of this variation produced, and this one is all matching and original. The finish on these phosphate guns can be hard to rate, as this one has some thinning on the front strap and a "splotchy" finish on the slide, which is common for this variant. There is an area of pitting on the right side of the slide. The grips are in great shape with only minor scuffs or scratches. The bore is excellent. Comes with a proper wartime magazine.
