I have for sale a nice original WWII P-38 made by byf and is a "dual tone" pistol in that it is made from a mix of blued and phosphate parts. Based on the serial number range, it was made in either Jan or Feb of 1945. The Mauser factory was using up the old 1944 dated byf slides early in the 1945 production and so this is correct for a "d" serial number suffix pistol. The frame and slide display the thin phosphate finish that the Germans were switching to, while the barrel and take down lever still retains the blued finish - hence the "dual tone" name. All matching - frame, slide, barrel and locking block. Correct matched Walther made grips. Magazine is a correct WWII P.38 marked one. The gun has no major flaws that I am aware of other than normal wear to the surfaces as shown. No rust or pitting - just finish wear which is common for these phosphate guns as that finish is very thin and not too durable. Not mint, but not a boat anchor either. Just a nice honest example in my opinion. I try to provide an accurate and honest description so that there won't be any unpleasant surprises. Pictures are worth a thousand words and I have many available so please ask and I will send them to you. If you have any questions or need additional photos, don't hesitate to ask. Interest and value in P-38s are increasing quickly as the Lugers have become too expensive for many collectors. Here is your chance to obtain an example of the popular "dual tone" variation. I offer a 3 day non-firing inspection period and will provide a refund less any unrecovered costs that I might incur.
