Walther 9mm P38 variant P1 Lightweight Military 1978 P-1 German Federal Border Guard BGS P-38 Descendant CA OK with 1 Factory 8 Shot Magazine Hex Bolt Reinforced Frame  Guns > Pistols > Walther Pistols > Post WWII > P38
Description: From duty on the front lines of the Cold War with the Federal German Border Police, Bundesgrenzschutz, or BGS, here is a very attractive Cold War piece manufactured in the Federal Republic of Germany, West Germany, in 1978 from its slide date, a year of Communist crackdowns against East German citizen protest against the Wall and what it represented. This pistol is certainly a symbolic piece of the Berlin Wall, and the island of Democracy that West Germany stood for. It bears correct West German proof marks, and Its only U.S. marking is the federally mandated import stamp, PW Arms, so marked on the right forward side of the slide. Slide and frame have matching numbers. This is a lightweight, alloy-frame model P-1 in 9mm Luger, production of which began in 1956. It is very similar to, and a direct descendant of, the fabled steel frame P38 of World War II. Construction is durable semi-gloss anodized alloy frame with matte blue military finish on its barrel, slide, and all its steel parts. Type is traditional double and single action semi-auto with full safety / decocking lever. The P-1 has a firing pin safety as well, but no magazine safety. Magazine holds 8 rounds of 9mm Luger, Parabellum, 9x19 ammunition, call it what you will, THE 9mm. Barrel is 4 7/8 inches. Sights are dovetailed notch rear and blade front. Weight empty is 28.2 ounces. This specimen has the hex bolt reinforced frame. Surface detractions are minimal, only faint amounts of whitening on its sharp edges and light holster contact streaking. We rate this piece as Very Good, close to Excellent, 85 to 90 percent vicinity by our estimate. If refinished, the lettering is so sharp it doesn’t matter. Photos, at any rate, should suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically; bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent, and the West German Police always took good care of their firearms anyway. This is an excellent quality pistol, but not designed for +P loads. Its historical importance includes the fact that the P38 was the direct ancestor to our own well known 3900 and 5900 Smith & Wessons, and the Beretta 92 / M9. Own this fine Cold Warrior Walther P-1 for only $ 389.00. California DOJ Roster Status good until Feb 2014. Not transferable to any civilian residents of Massachusetts.
