    My MP 40 isnt in best condition anymore,(allmost all finish has gone), but I like it anyway ,because it has an interesting story behind.

    Somewhere, (cant remember where), some time ago, I read that MP's with red grips are rare. Is it true? Or it is just rumors?

    Maybe some of you ,dear friend collectors, know more about it.

    Ill be gratefull for every answer!

    I have no idea, but lets see the rest of it? I suppose red baklite is rarer than brown but its not really my area?

    Don't know why it would make it rarer? P38's have different coloured bakerlite handles, just makes the red ones more desirable.

    I would say not rare, but more desirable, and i doubt if it would increase the price, but like Jock I would like to see the rest of it
