    Change is a good thing. The skin is the hardest part of Gunboards transition. There just isn't enough contrast.

    I think for that price you can get all components matching minus the mag. Maybe in a collector to collector deal you'd get a matching mag...

    The Germans stopped making Lugers about the time they were attempting to streamline production for firearms, which means the Lugers have many pieces that are numbered to match. Barrel, frame, slide...

    I think it's a great idea. The existing Luger communities seem to be hung up on keeping the Luger on a pedestal as an iconic item. They refuse to let it's legacy be tarnished by the notion of...

    Yes, looks legit to me! It is a rare variation called 'K under' because... well the K is under the serial number instead of inline. Great find with the matching mag!

    It's not stunning... it went for well over what any avid collector would pay. It's not rare enough to warrant a higher price in that condition. Maybe if the mag was originally matching and maybe if...

    Very nice find. Definitely a neat magazine for a p.38 collector. There's various theories on why the a/b, but I am not sure there's any real evidence that points to the exact reason. Doesn't...

    The G block for Spreewerk is where the cyq first appears on the left side of the barrel (you have to pull back the slide to see it). We have a small study going on attempting to narrow down the...

    I tried to zoom, is the serial 776g? If so something doesn't add up. 9 years ago it showed up on the p38forum with 1 mag and no holster, one collector in KY bought it from another long term P.38...

    A couple of months isn't a long time when looking for a specific rifle. Especially over this summer when many buyers received influxes of cash from uncle sam. I would recommend creating a WTB ad in...

    Unfortunately both this forum and the p38forum are focused on pre-1945 items (some 1946). I'd try waltherforums.com for more info on post war Walther PPs.

    We are all here to learn, discover, and enjoy the hobby. If you people want to fight, I think they're in the wrong place. I think GunBoards is the venue for that :laugh:

    He's right you know ^^

    Look at the serial study I posted. BYF 41 started in the O block and continued through Z and reset to NLS and then started A through B. The BYF P.38s followed the same...

    You have picked up many very nice items. It's a great start to a WWII German hand gun collection. Just be careful, it can be addicting!

    It's a shotgun approach to the subject matter. I find it useful for certain areas, but again, it is out of date and missing many new discoveries. I'd try and buy it for cheaper.

    Mag is phosphate, doesn't belong with that gun. That mag was made 4+ months after the gun. Gun is post war modified - not Gestapo. Gestapo P.38s are a myth to sell guns.
