For your consideration is a World War II Nazi German Army P38 9mm double action pistol. This was the rugged semi-auto sidearm that replaced the more fragile Luger pistol. The P38 became the mainstay handgun issued to German troops in the 2nd World War. Unlike its predecessor, the P38 could be fired after the first round had been chambered and the hammer was in the down/safe position by simply pulling the trigger which cocked the hammer and fired the round simultaneously, hence the term double action. The P38 was known for incredible durability and the ability to function under the harshest of battlefield conditions. This was especially apparent on the Russian front during the worst muddy or freezing conditions. It was also a very popular bring-back war souvenir by our returning victorious GIs. This example with the code CYQ was made by the famed Spreewerke arms factory named for its location on the Spree River in Spandau, a suburb of Berlin. The serial number 9087 with letter suffix “g” indicates this fine handgun was manufactured in 1943. The pistol is in remarkable condition retaining nearly all the blue finish with crisp Nazi acceptance marks and proof marks on the right side of the slide and correspondingly correct “P38” and “CYQ” markings on the left side of the slide. The action is tight and fully functional and the bore is mint with bright with sharp rifling throughout. Correct grips and magazine intact, this is an excellent pistol manufactured during the months of the most heated fighting in Europe. The pistol comes with a leather hoslter featuring a serial number and nazi proof mark. Two additional magazines are included with one having the serial number: 5433h. This firearm qualifies as a Curio & Relic, and requires FFL Transfer or NICS Background Check.
