Randy, I don't know, maybe in the meantime, you can tell any other markings on the P38, since I am assuming that is what it is?

Hi Randy, cyq S/N 5429L was completed about Dec. 1943. It is difficult to pin it down, but based on average production numbers, December is within a month. So November 1943 to January 1944 is a good range. Hope this helps!

Your gun was made in late Jan or early Feb 1944 based on new information supplied by Jan Balcar.

Jan stated that they had reached the Mid K block in Dec.(confirmed info)

May we have a description of the gun...including the markings on the frame under the left grip and on the right side of the barrel?

Thanks all for the quick response. As soon as I receive the pistol I will provide you as much info as possible. Should receive it in a week or so.

Now you have me curious when my cyq P38 was made. It's very crude with most of the machine cuts looking like they were done with a very dull tool. Because of this, I had assumed it was late war but the S/N is 9982d.

I would guess about the middle of May 1943...the next month (June) they finally hit their goal of 10K guns per month. This a guess, however - thanks to Jan Balcar - it is based on a few facts!

Following table shows accepted pistols. Closing chapter of production is marked with "?", because acceptance was simplified. Thanks to men from SPREEWERK factory shooting range, namely Mr. Cihal, Mr . Drahonovsky, Mr. Juklicek, Mr. Pelc and Mr. Hendrych.
