In 97% very sharp condition, we have a top example of a very early 1943 production Mauser made byf43 P.38 Pistol. This is all matching with a mint bore and featured the very desirable early Mauser Dusty Blue Finish. This is one of first of the byf43 coded pistols and they overlap the late byf42 production although they were all built in the first quarter of 1943. These early production 1943 Mauser made pistols are very different from most of the 1943 manufactured Mauser pistols as they have the distinctive finish and the early type frame with no reinforcing bulge for the trigger pin. This is very much a top condition example of a pistol that every serious P.38 collector must have for their collection.
