Thank you so much for this post, this is why I have joined so many forums. The info you get on the better maintained forums can be priceless. I am printing of the pic log so I can make up a book. I am sure this took a lot of your time to post this, thank you again

The info is from Tan.

Recognize him for his without word photos to take down the P-38. Say it here now. He is here only when he wants to share and help.
Recognize Tan and say so.

Tanfoglio: GREAT WORK!

If anyone has a well used P.1 alloy frame that needs refinishing, it will need to be completely stripped to do it, and this is the perfect guide.

I bought a used book about a month ago called "German Handguns" by Ian V. Hogg copyright 2001, ISBN 1-85367-461-3 with a different P1/P38 dis-assembly sequence and instruction from Tan's.

I think Tan's is fine but in this book the sequence is different and just as good if not better (after clearing the gun and removing the magazine):

1. Pull slide back and lock by pushing up slide lock latch while gripping slide allowing to return forward into normal firing position.

2. Press trigger allowing hammer to fall.

3. Ease slide and barrel off the frame.

Slightly different but worth doing. After separating the slide and barrel from the frame Tan's instructions are just fine.

In this way you pull the trigger when the slide is back into fire position instead of fighting the mainspring of the trigger to ease off the slide and barrel. A bit easier in my opinion.

The trigger is pulled but there is no damage to the P38 in the original P38 design. If there is damage then the P38 is substandard.
