For those of you who might have an ailing P38 in the safe or the closet and want to get it up and running in time for the new year:

The new CDNN Sports catalog features what it bills as a "P-38 Gun Parts Sale" on page 124. It features everything from the locking block ($19.99) to cartridge indicator ($9.99) to retainer pin (.99) to grips ($12.99 for the pair; add .99 for the grip screw) to ... you name it. The most expensive part, the complete slide, is $49.99. "All parts (are) original German and are excellent to like-new condition." Don't forget the disclaimer: "All parts should be installed by a competent gunsmith."

If you don't get the catalog, you can reach CDNN on line (http://www.cdnninvestments.com/) or toll-free at 1-800-588-9500.

For what it's worth, purchasing all of the parts to assemble a complete gun would cost you somewhere in the neighborhood of $376.64 -- all the more reason to check out the deals at Simpson's Ltd. or Dan's Ammo. :)

The disclaimer should be heeded. Several of the parts listed are selectively fitted at the factory, and are NOT just "drop-in" replacements. Headspace, for example, is affected by the locking block, which was made in different sizes. Moreover, some locking blocks physically cannot be assembled in certain frames unless correctly fitted. Another critical part is the "release piece" activated by the safety lever to decock the hammer; it must be properly fitted unless you want to start drilling holes where they don't belong.
