Article about: You all know I like items with a story. Well this one sure has one...what it is? Anyone's guess. The pistol itself is a run of the mill Spreewerks rough blued, "nicely" used matchi

    In many ways, I've always liked the P-38's even more so than the iconic Lugers. The P-38's were modern styled and engineered automatics-unlike the near obsolete Lugers. A Great pick up!
    I don't own a Lugar (yet) and am a bit of a 1911 guy myself, but I will say, the P-38 points SO much quicker than 1911.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Right up my alley and definitely on my list. Very nice, Map!

    Looks like a nice honest example Map. I checked one source and it states CYQ Spreewerke had a serial no. range of 1- 9500z. Love the rest of your collection too. Thanks again for sharing your fine collectibles.
    To be honest, I've done almost no research on the pistol itself. This one is a July 43 production date. They did go to Z and then for a very short period they put the letter as a prefix. Or so I have read (see link).

    I was reading manufactured 1942-1944 for a total of about 283, 000 by spreewerks. Which I believe would be the rarest of the 3 manufacturers.

    But the least desirable by collectors (or so I read) being the last of the three to make them.

    Yes thanks for the added info on total production of 283,000 Cousin!! i should have included that in my post when I stated the range. I read 98k rifles had a new letter after around 10,000 made. Always plenty to learn concerning these weapons

    Not sure why that would be. Rarity is pretty much a standard. That stinks.

    Always more to learn. That's one reason I love this site.

    Been sitting in a safe for over 5 years Phil (not inside the holster of course).

    The photos are courtesy of Sony's Alpha 6300 compact MDC with an optional macro lens that I bought just before my trip to Gettysburg this year. Even a simpleton like me can now take great shots!
    Ha small world MAP. Headin to Gettysburg myself this month. Be my fourth visit. Hope those gift shops still offer as much goodies. Horse Soldier was a great stop and I hear Harley Davidson has a place on York Street as well. Think I better bring a few extra bucks!!!

    Gettysburg is fantastic. Short trip from NYC area. A stop in Philly for a day is great. You can see the USS New Jersey battleship and some great Pho and cheese steaks.

    See Post #1428......for a few pics.

    Who is Talking/Post a Picture

    I highly recommend you hire a private tour. I did 3 hours and should have done 4 or 5.

    I stayed at the Brafferton Inn on York. Across the street is the Harley place. I don't think I went to the Horse Soldier but I did buy some stuff from the Union Drummer Boy. There was also a brand new WW1 and WW2 shop that was just opening called "Gettysburg Antiques & Militaria". It was right off the square across from the Blue & Grey Diner.
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Very nice, I like it.
    They're also fun to shoot, but the triggers can be (understandably) stiff. The AC41 I had shot decently, but was no match for my VIS-35.
