    Default P 38 simulated pistol

    This is a very life-like copy of a P 38. Even the grips appear to be bakelite. It has a clip, and fires double-action only. When you pull the trigger the entire action moves backwards. Any idea what it is worth? Does anybody collect them? Incidentaaly this "weapon" can NOT be made to fire, I am sure. There is a pin in the barrell.

    I forgot to mention: this item is supposedly made in Japan. when, I do not know - perhaps 1967, because on the left side of slide it is stamped: "mgc 67" and it has a crown with 3 balls on the top - to the left of "P 38". It even has a serial # 03340

    That's a beautiful copy I do remember in the late 60's, early 70's there was a company that manufactured to detail copies of hand gun classics. I don't remember the companies name being so long ago but for a piece at that time i vaguely remember an approx. price of about $200 at the time. Colt Python's almost doubling. They were not cheap, i remember because i wanted one so bad and could not afford it.

    Any idea why my gun is marked mgc 67 instead of mgc 68? Any ideas what it is worth today?

    i recall in the the late '70's early '80's a company called 'unique imports' sold replicas like this from the back of detective magazines, $39.95 seems to ring a bell for the price of a p 38 copy, a friend had the p 38 and a 1911 that were highly coveted by all of us 7th graders.
