This came to me several years back as a complete rig with dated 1944 holster in good condition with both magazines original. The history I am afraid has been lost like so many others. Even though the outside had gotten crude in production this has one of the best triggers and smoothest actions of any of these I have shot. Bore is excellent and this one has been to the range many times with me. I was never the biggest P38 fan but over the years my take has always been the early Walther were excellent guns and some of the fit and finish suffered near the end of the war. The cyq's were always horrible fit, finish and build quality. They were completely made with forced labor and it shows. The Mauser always had some of the nicest actions to them. You could tell they still used craftsman on the internals.
