    Removed most of the rust
    Is there a way to determine what
    Year it is?

    Well, let's see. It looks to not be an early one. It appears to have the humped reinforced area at the trigger area of the frame. And, it has the shorter extractor hole on the slide. That's about all that can be learned as the craters are just too much. All the markings on the outside look obliviated. Inside, if you can get the parts seperated, you might be able to see some stamps.

    I am going to guess and say it's a Spreewerk (cyq). The reason I am guessing this is the grip panel shows 5 "broken lines" around the grip screw. These types of grips were put on the cyq P.38's.

    Thanks!
    I think I will need to remove the grips if I want to clean it further, but that means I'll have to drill out the screw..
    If i can get the slide to move, I'll be very happy :p

    Default Leave As A Relic

    Just my opinion, I'd leave it the way it is, an encrusted relic. It's too far gone from the years being buried. To me it has a lot of appeal being a relic, and a very complete one at that. As mentioned before it does appear to be a later war cyq product due to the grips.
