Hi, it's been a while since I posted in this section, I'll have to put photos of my collection up sometime. I've noticed that weapons with full matching numbers on parts are more valuable and sought-after by collectors, but were parts numbers frequently mismatched as a result of period replacement or manufacture? I ask because I hope soon to buy a Walther P-38, and the closest to affordable I can find are all with multiple serial numbers each. I suppose I just want to buy something that's 'as it was', not something a collector has put together... that's if I can afford one at all! The cheapest I've found is £460, and that will take some saving up.
