Gentlemen,

Some of us have nice collections of P.38s but collecting mag variations is a science in itself.

Per Mathisen has written an entire book on the topic. I have illustrated the last of the numbered mags for the Walther P.38 pistol. This collection was not easy to assemble, half of the fun was in the hunt! Collecting P.38 mags is inexpensive from $45 to $125.00 per mag depending on how much you want it!

I hope you enjoy this presentation.

Mark

Mark,

I have to hand it to you, you have way more patience, resources and focus than I will ever have to pursue the collecting of magazines let alone these collectible/vintage military pistols for pete sakes! Really, thanks for the excellent photo presentation--as always your pictures and the presentation are outstanding! I have to learn to take digital photos like you do. Again my compliments on a wonderful presentation and congratulations on all your hard work in assembling this P.38 magazine collection. Lloyd in HOTTER than HELL Las Vegas!!!

Mark..... Neat presentation..... I sold off most of my P-38 stuff to feed my Luger habit but do have one 42 mag left. It is 7368b and only has one E/359 stamp on the spine. Thanks........

Mark,

Fine presentation! I collect next to Lugers also Walthers. P38 is getting difficult here, and magazines are a nightmare to me, I need that book!
Could you please quote the ISBN #? Would be helpfull to find it.

And, how do you manage to put all these pic's and text into one image?
Compliments - thats professional.

Thanks for the compliments, I really enjoy mag hunting! You never know what will turn up at gun shows and most dealers don't have a clue about rarity. I actually once picked up a mag in the second variation zero series and AC no date range for the cost of a side numbered mag. (at that time $100.00)

I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 for the photo presentation. (It came with my camera and is very easy to use) The image above us actually 4 different photo merge presentations merged together. It did take me a while to put that one together since each item was photographed seperately and grouped accordingly.
