New P38

Hi Gents
Pick up today from an old indochina War Vet this rig and I need your help !
the gun comes with an "bla 1944"(WaA159) holster but you can see than the two straps at the back have been changed.

The P38 is an AC44 serial number 3310 C on the frame, slide and o the barrel front
The serial number on the frame is following by an "h"
On the left side, there is one WaA (very hard to read the number) and an eagle with swatiska : on this eagle a small Star (approx 4 mm)

Two pieces look like to have been parkerized (the rest of the gun is 50% (slide stop and trigger bar)
For finish, there is a WaA135 on the barrel (at the rigt side)
So now, my questions !
-is it a post war (french rework ?)gun ?
-is it a FN slide ?

thanks for any comments

Very interesting P.38, can you post a photo of the serial number on the magazine?


You have a very unique P.38!

I have one of the French assembled guns with a matched mag stamped in the exact same place.


My gun has the later metal type grips, I would think yours are the soft plastic ones? It is also interesting to note that your earlier gun has the letter block stamped on the mag as well as the serial number.
