Some collectors go ga-ga over these late-war guns, but all things considered it's hard for me to find $400 worth of value there. But to each his own.

Yeah these local guys wouldn't know a p38 from a luger,and have no clue what a CYQ finish should look like,sure hope they stay that way.The dealers that look up everything on Gunbroker are not the ones I buy from ha.Heck the p1s with the aluminum frame are over 400.00 now.A matching numbers original finish ww2 p38 for 400.00 is a no brainer for an investment,unless you don't like making money of course.

Did all the Spreewerke guns have the serial numbers on the different parts? I’m not that versed in the classic Walthers, but I know enough that one with matching parts and war era markings will fetch enough to buy at least 2 PPQ’s.

Yes, cyq pistols had matching parts marked (that is frame, barrel, locking block and slide) when they left the factory. Never had serial number matched magazines though.
