    Unfortunately I'm a 75-year old computer dumbo, so if I'm posting this in the wrong place, sorry. I'm in Canada and in legal possession of a pre-WW2 PPK 7.65. Canada's gun laws are ridiculous so I can only use it at a government-registered firing range. It was inherited from my Dad who...

    I'm from Northern Michigan and new to Walther guns. Inherited a GI bring back P38 recently and have done a bunch of digging into the history and manufacturing. It's pretty fascinating and cool. Looking forward to learning more about WWII era Walthers.

    Shortly before my father passed he showed me a few new guns he'd recently purchased. One of which was this P38 GI bring back. I have been digging up information on P38s in general but was having a hard time finding any matching serial numbers for the time period. I finally found one place with...

    Attached (hopefully) are photos of an old P-38 holster my wife pulled out of a closet. Looking closely, the inside flap is marked “bdr 44” with an Eagle over a symbol and another line of stamped print (difficult to decipher); but, looks like “WaA80” (or WaA3G, or WaA30) below it. I purchased...

    Hello everyone I bought a mismatched CYQ Spreewerke P38 as an entry into these interesting pistols. I was hoping to learn more about it from the knowledge people have here. It was sold to me as a 1940 mismatched CYQ with no obvious refurbishment. I am happy with the price I paid here in Canada...

    Hello all, I picked up this p38 nearly 6 years ago now and I am only just trying to figure out the markings. All the fonts seems to be of poor quality which made me think it might be a end of war type but I have no clue. I have tried to research it but have come up with nothing. Any help would...

    While searching for a ZF4 scope on an Auction House's site, I saw a listing for a Walther P38 barrel with a suppressor on it. The only information I can find is from the auction house's description (translated from German): "Caliber 9 mm Luger, No. 585a, No. without, S / N on the bolt. Matt...

    Picked this up today just because the curiosity about it was killing me. It's a Spreewerk, serial 6070 u, which indicates a 1942 manufacture date. It has the "88" certification stamp as well as the Nazi Eagle, but more curiously it's sporting what appears to be the "defect" starburst marm and a...

    I have done as much research as i can for this gun. i know it is was manufactured in NOV 1943 in Spreewerk. It appears to be all matching, but when i removed the grips i found a stamp that doesnt make sense to me. https://imgur.com/a/ouktlV6 Any idea what this is? Does it have meaning, or did...

    I bought an AC41 var 2 recently to complete a frankengun I had been building, and ran into a bit of trouble. After cleaning and re-assembling the slide and barrel, I actuated the firing pin to measure protrusion from the bolt face on simulated firing, and found that it wouldn't even pass beyond...

    I recently acquired a P38 manufactured in 1968. From the very beginning, it had frequent fail to extract problems. After I read through posts in this forum, I disassembled the P38 slide completely, and cleaned everything thoroughly, especially the extractor. However, the P38 still have the same...

    Hello, I own a post war Walther P38 made in 5/60 and I like to shoot it. I shoot all my guns an this one is no exception. I've put exactly 1215 rounds through it since I bought it. I've inspected it just after I purchased it and it had no signs of frame wear. The surface that interacts...

    Hello! I have a post war P1 Style grips on my P38 and looking to finally swap them out for wartime a bakelite style. Looking at using the gun for reenacting a little bit and thought reproduction grips would be a better choice. There seems to be a lot of them available from different companies...

    Hi there, New member to the forum. I have a Spreewerke P38 that had the firing pin cover blow off in pieces while firing it. I also lost my rear sight somewhere in the mud and presume it to be gone forever. My question is this, does anyone know where I can find original parts? Particularly in...

    I just got my first P38 this past weekend, an AC42, all matching numbers except the magazine, it didn't have a serial number, it has a little pitting along the slide on the right side & at the muzzle, brown grips in great shape, no cracking or chips & no import markings anywhere. The inside was...
