Desirable Walther P38, made in 1942, all matching, with correct magazine, holster.
VG, bright original salt blue with sharp edge and holster wear, especially on the right side of the barrel, that one would expect from field use. Comparable condition front strap, grips and magazine. Bright bore with light, speckling in grooves. Perfect manual mechanics. Holster in crummy condition with a hole in lid and back surface, consider that a throw-in. An excellent and relatively early German WWII pistol that would grace any collection.
