A friend acquired this weapon about two years ago but his wife was always troubled by its possible history and he wanted to give it a good home.

It is a nice P.38 Code "ac 43" 3rd Variation, 9493m in very good condition and it shoots well indeed.
All numbers match but it only has one mag.





With an m letter I'd say it was built later in 43 but it still is well finished and the grips are dark instead of red.

It shot a little low at 45 feet but I was shooting S&B 115. Next time I'll try a few GECO 124 and see what they do.

In all I'm pleased to bring this one into the family

Here is the target image:

I thought I'd post two more images of this pistol which may show a little more detail.

These show the color of the grips and tone of the bluing more closely.

The front sight blade is marked with a 4 indicating a height of 6.4 mm or so I believe. Please correct me if I'm wrong.



Notice the way the acceptance stamps are not in a neat orderly line...

It was pointed out to me that the acceptance stamps are out of sequence besides being out of line...

The more I look at this piece the more interesting it becomes.
