    I would like to determine the date and history of my P-38 # 21124 thanks first time here Dave

    From the serial number and markings, what can be learned about this P-38 war trophy? My father brought this back in 1945 and it has been in our family ever since. Markings include: "bYf44" Serial Number: "4993" matching Images: Eagle of an F underneath; Eagle with an N underneath Other proof...

    I just put in a new Wolff 16# and the DA pull got a lot worse. Apparently, my original spring wasn't the standard 20#? I don't understand how anyone could keep their aim straight either way. I'm thinking of buying a 13#, but i wanted to hear about your experiences first. I've found surprisingly...

    So i've had this aluminum-frame P-38 for some years, and i've always disliked the contrast between the frame and the slide-assembly. It was also quite worn-out externally, and i've long considered painting it (and various other guns), if only i'd get set up to do so. A couple months back, a...

    My 1973 Polizei P-38 recently developed a problem where the slide sticks in the aft (rearward) position (with no magazine in). I am forced to push the slide forward with a slight nudge from my palm. It is clean and well lubricated. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might fix this problem?

    Hope this is a reasonable place to post this. I've been a Walther fan since I was a teenager. My first handgun was an Interarms P-38 that I bought new in the early 70's. It was soon followed by a WWII AC41 and others. I've regrettably sold a few over the years as I was a Luger collector for...
