Here is my latest acqisition. A all matching c-block cyq P.38 sn 5319c with original capture papers. The barrel has an asterisk mark on it and it also has the thinly blued locking block. The soldier that captured it was in the 8th Army Air Corps, 561st bombardment squadron, 388th bombardment group. He was a crew member on a B-17. He is still living locally and I will try my best to get in touch with him and learn a little more about him and the gun. Here are the pictures of the pistol and paper.

Hi Joshua! Nice pistol from late May 1943. I have two questions:

I am very interested in internal marking (Spreewerk unique). On barrel assy right side you see so called B code stamping. According my researches should be on your pistol B 31 or B 32. Let me know something about it.

Another internal marking is placed under the left grip plate. Let me know something about it too.

Hoba,

For your reasearch: I have cyq P.38, serial number 4158c. The forward part of the right side of the barrel block is marked: B 31. (No Asterisk).

The left side of the frame, at the upper rear, under the grip is marked: 717, or 1717. The marking is a partial strike, and is not very clear.

I would post photos, but I still haven't learned how to properly use my digital camera. I took some photos today, and couldn't even get them to load into the computer! But I will keep trying!

Joshua, very nice. These servers have a bit of trouble with spaces in the url, so it sometimes recognizes them and at other times it does not. Reload the pictures without spaces and they'll show up.

Jan, I am out of town at the moment so I cannot physically check the markings on the gun. As soon as I get back, I will let you know. (As memory serves I believe the barrel marking is B 31, but I will make certain.)

Ed, I tried reposting them the way you said. No luck. I have never had trouble before so I will take new pictures as soon as I get back home.

Thanks,
Adam

Jan,
Sorry for the delay. The barrel marking on my p.38's barrel is B 32. The internal marking under the grip is 233. Thanks for your interest.

Adam they worked, you can put your cursor over a file, and if you see any spaces, it sometimes causes it not to work. You do have a space still in the first file. I think the problem is when you have more than one photo and it thinks the file name is the same?

I usually just make them all together, i.e. spreework 123 .jpg and change it to spreework123.jpg it isn't pretty but shows up.

I have found that I can use a dash (-) successfully, instead of a space, and the photo will upload OK. Other symbols seem to cause problems, but for some reason the upload software will accept a dash. Helps with naming files. For instance, if a photo is too big, and I want to section it, or if I just want to load two photos, then I can end the name of the first file "-1" and the second file "-2", etc. and it works out OK.
