thanks for all the information, I really appreciate it! I've just had a look at the Chelmsford Militaria website, and their P38's are very nice, and as you say not overpriced! The information on the makers and dates is extremely useful, especially for when I can hopefully buy one! For now though, I'm going to stick with my 'new' ww2 ppk! I haven't received it yet, but once I do, I'll post another topic containing some pictures of that!
Many thanks, Patrick
