In New in the original Walther factory box condition, we have a top example of the rare and highly sought after Walther Mod P.38 Pistol. This is the wartime commercial version of the P.38, and it was manufactured largely from frames an other parts that failed to pass military inspection. Most examples will have visible defects in the front grip strap or other cosmetic defects, they are cosmetically imperfect but will function flawlessly. Instead of wasting these parts they were assembled into pistols and were sold commercially. There was a strong demand for pistols for officer private purchase and for Germans living in the occupied territories for protection against partisan attack. These Mod P.38 are quite rare and are a must have pistol for the Serious P.38 collector. This example is in mint new in the original Walther factory box. These pistols are often seen in a reddish plum finish and this one is no exception. One of the rarest and most attractive late war production P.38 variant and so exceptionally rare that its still with the factory box. Almost certainly a vet pickup from the storage area of the Walther Factory after its capture. This is one of the few Walther P.38 boxes in existence they are extremely rare and seldom seen.
