Product Description

Walther P-38 , Post WWII, very very nice . All steel, this is not a *Walther P-1! It has wooden grips an a really hi-gloss blued finish. Really nice, one magazine. But it did come with a nice padded leather olive green zippered bag. Marked “Made in West Germany“.

from Wikipedia 

“The Walther P38 (originally written Walther P.38) is a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol that was developed by Carl Walther GmbHas the service pistol of the Wehrmacht at the beginning of World War II. It was intended to replace the costly Luger P08, the production of which was scheduled to end in 1942.

When the Bundeswehr announced it wanted the P38 for its official service pistol, Walther readily resumed P38 production within just two years, using wartime pistols as models and new engineering drawings and machine tools. The first of the new P38s were delivered to the West German military in June 1957, some 17 years and two months after the pistol had initially seen action in World War II, and from 1957 to 1963 the P38 was again the standard sidearm.”

“*In late 1963 the postwar military model P1 was adopted for use by the German military, identifiable by the P1 stamping on the slide. The postwar pistols, whether marked as P38 or P1, have an aluminum frame rather than the steel frame of the original design. Starting in June 1975, the aluminum frame was reinforced with a hex bolt above the trigger guard.

During the 1990s the German military started replacing the P1 with the P8 pistol and finally phased out the P1 in 2004.”
