6/5/17 - This is a rare TRIFECTA parts P.38! Walther, Mauser and Spreewerke parts! It is a Late Date AC Frame P.38 (armorers replacement frame from Walther). Then, it has a Mauser byf 44 slide with NO serial numbers. Frame has the copper color to it found on some Walther AC44 guns, and there is a serial number etched into the area above the trigger guard. The barrel and locking block have no numbers on them either, however the barrel is CYQ marked and eagle/88 proofed. The locking block is WaA135 proofed. It's a well-documented, but little known category of P.38's. These guns were made in 1945 towards the end. The general speculation is that these guns were not made at main Walther or Mauser factories. In an effort to increase production, labor services were sought outside of the factories, with any parts they could get. Much of which were spare, salvaged or armorer's parts. One theory is they were built using camp labor at the Neuengamme Concentration Camp. I'm not claiming that to be true, just that it is one of the theories on these guns. The magazine is JVD marked. The slide has 2 Mauser proofs. Minty bore.
