Hello, I am new to this board. I have P38 matching serial number parts 3183 w

also it has cyq (not sure about the q) next to the P38.

Any info on the gun would be great. Thanks

Notplayn,

The cyq is a code meaning your P.38 was made by Spreewerke. They were located in Berlin-Spandau, a suburb of Berlin.

The eagle over 88 is a Waffenamt acceptance mark.

From the serial number you provided, it appears to have been made in 1943-1944.

I also agree with banddr2, the guys on p38forum will have a wealth of knowledge on your gun.
