My first WWII pistol purchase, this would be the one that sent me down the rabbit hole. Correct me if I am wrong but here goes my analysis: Spreewerk, April 44 manufacture date, numbers matching 4468 0(including locking block), e88 proofs on left side of barrel & frame, 2 on the right side of slide with acceptance mark. The question I have is what is the 511(3rd pic from bottom) center above the grip frame, left side?

What are your thoughts on condition(looking for honesty, you wont hurt my feelings, it was too cheap not to buy)? I am not much good at figuring % blue, id call it 50-70%. Taking pics trying to focus on the markings is not for the faint of heart.

As for the magazine. Proper ENM welds on left, presumably no other markings. See pics below, there is an e88 but it is so small it shouldnt count, center bottom.

Agree with all the above.
Don't shoot your buddy's 147 grain.
It's an honest and correct P38. Nothing wrong with your pistol, just some wear. (not abuse)

WARNING: This cyq P38 is a gateway German drug.
Next thing you know, you'll be thinking "Hey, I already have a third of the P38 manufacturers. I should have a Walther and a Mauser. A maybe a P08, and an M1922, P27, Radom, ..................."
