P38 AC 40 Bring Back 2 Matching Mags  Guns > Pistols > Walther Pistols > Pre-1945 > P-38
Description: A little history... This Walther P38 is an all original AC40. My late uncle was a Navy commander and served during WWII. He was the original owner of the P38 after it made its way back to the States. His friend, an Army solider physically removed this Walther from an fallen enemy German soldier. My uncle owned the pistol for well over 30 years. Upon my uncles death, my other uncle became the new owner and it remained in his personal collection for 25 years. I have owned the pistol since 2008. I have never fired it. What sets this AC40 apart from many of the others is that it is truly a vet bring back. It bears no import markings, it has been in my family since it has been in America, I have a direct connection to the original owners the gun is all original. The latest Blue Book of Gun Values places a $2,375 value on the gun alone. A 30% premium is added if you have an original matching magazine which is a rarity. Since virtually no guns are in existence still accompanied by both of the original serial numbered matching magazines, the Blue Book adds a 100% premium to the original book value. This places a conservative Blue Book value at right at $4,750. Adding the original holster to the package, which has been estimated to be worth $200-$400, I am confident that I have $5k package. There is not a more correct example of an original condition P38 than I have. The gun does exhibit a small amount of pitting and holster wear but nothing major. The gun has never been refinished or repaired and fully functions.
