Spreewerk purchase?

Hello and am considering acquiring this Spreewerk, 9mm Semi-Auto SERVICE-PISTOL, MODEL 'P38', serial no. 8039H, WITH HOLSTER AND SPARE MAGAZINE.

Any thoughts on the production date and background info for the fine looking CYQ example?

Looks good to me, seems like the right grips. Should have a number on the frame under the left grip, some say it was an internal control number. Hope it hasn't been deactivated but if that's how it is there,.... People here collect data on the barrel side markings too. Holster needs some TLC.

Could you also provide pictures of the markings on the magazines and holster ?

Thanks for all the replies and thoughts, much appreciated. And just to clarify this is no deac, personally I do not see the point in collecting junk iron! However all I have for the moment are the pictures available, if my bids are successful I'll post out something more detailed... Price for this is in the region of 300 - 400, how does that compare to something over in your markets? Just interested.

A WWII P.38 by itself will start around $500-1200. Holsters start out at a little less. Magazines $100-125 unless it's something unusual.

This is one of my favorite online gunstores to shop :

The process here is a bit of a minefield (no pun) though it is possible to acquire 'standard' handguns. These all quite closely controlled due to several incidents in the past here in the UK. Long barrel pistols, rifles and shotguns can be acquired and held in reasonable numbers (what is reasonable?) at home and a 'collection' at a range where I'm allowed to handle and fire them. I hold around 25 firearms, see my profile if interested.

There are a number of auction houses and dealers for what is called section 5 firearms (standard pistols) though most gun dealers here trade in what is called section 1 firearms, e.g the long barrel pistols, rifles etc. I could post you out a copy of the UK guidelines if you're short on sleep...
