    Default Late war Fn Slide Mauser P38 dual tone...

    Picked this up today..These were made up from spare fn slides already marked for Walther..These are actually made in early 1945...Only one mag, but there MAY be another...Cool late war holster made out of different components as the break away flap is actually made of pressed paper...The pistol is all matching...Comments welcome, thanks for looking, Mike

    mags are a dime a dozen for the late war P-38's, nice example for the safe and not the range

    nice rig

    Yea, that one is not an easy find. Looks really nice! That’s one type not in my collection. Someday one hopefully will be when money, the right one and right time all match up correctly.

    Added a few more pics...The phosphate finish on the slide isn't very good or was real thin and doesn't photograph well, it is not as "thick" as the frame and some of the small parts...Thanks again for the comments...Mike

    Default copper

    Love that copper colored spring. That slide is not worn, but the finish is just lighter. I call these tri tones...
