Walther P38, Postwar, Portuguese, GNR “Guarda Nacional Republicana” (Republic National Guard) Contract, Matching box.
VG+ original condition with holster and sharp edge wear in expected places, including front of trigger guard and very sight thinning of frontstrap. Comparable condition grips, the sharp edges of the lanyard loop recess chamfered. Mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. Excellent magazine and shipping box with latter added importer labeling as previously mentioned. One of the rarest of the postwar military/police contract P38s, especially nice with its original shipping box.
