Does she take +P loads?

That is gorgeous, some day I will have one similar, until then the P1 will have to suffice.

Seriously I would not use +P or any high-pressure ammo in a C&R gun. I shot off some hot ammo from my first Post War P38 three years ago.
This one I have yet to test with live ammunition.

Sure you can, it’s the perfect way to ruin a beautiful specimen


Wartime P38 (especially late war ones) are known for slide breakage when shooting over pressured rounds originally not designed for the gun. The later post-war P38s corrected this by thickening key areas of the slide. I've personally witness someone blowing their AC43 slide apart using bad ammo, the top cover flew with all the guts flying out, nasty! Din't happen on the first +P round, but around the first one hundred or so.

To the OP, Nice 1943 P38 by Mauser! Looks like a collector grade, I hope it will be well taken care of.

Beautiful piece. Great find. Now, you will have to get a holster, soft or hard shell?

That is one sweet package, Parabellus! Looks a lot like mine although my grips are standard black. My P38 is one fine shooter.

Enjoy it!

Very nice. I wish I could afford a collectors grade P-38. Not right now though. I'm torn between a mixed number war time P-38 for $389 or a post war matching numbers for $299. Either one is only a shooter. Which would you get?

Whichever one is in better working order for shooting.

Interesting that the extractor is on the left side of the gun.

That's right. Brass flies to the left with the P38 series including the P5.

Nice P-38s. Had a late war Spreewerk until it was removed from my home some years ago.

Any intel on the bakelite grips?
