Hi Mark,

By your posting it looks like you know quite a bit about Walther P38's and I'd like to get your input regarding my P38 that is very similar to the one you posted. It's not perhaps as good a condition as the one shown, but still good to excellent quality with matching serial no.s, including (2) matching clips and matching holster (not great condition, scuffed, etc.).

The gun's serial no. is 6464 J and has ac 41 stamped on the l/h side of the slide (is 41 the date of manufacture?).

What can you tell me about the relative value of this weapon and any other pertinant information regarding its origins, date of manufacture, rarity?

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Bob

Bob,

You have a third variation Walther AC41 with two matched mags and the holster, nice trophy! What are the markings on the holster?

Your gun has all of the small parts marked e/359, it is a military blue finish (vs. high gloss) and was the begining of the end for high quality German guns, not to say the gun is not valuable, value is based upon condition. Two matched mags and less than 15,000 produced make your P38 a very interesting pistol. Later in the war the quality went down the tubes, the overall finish got much worse after 1943 and production was much higher.

If you would like to email me privately, the address is [email protected]

Hi Mark,

Compliments for showing us this 'hyper-sought-after' Walther. Beside P08/Lugers I also collect Walther pistols from Model 1 through P99.
You can imagine what I feel when I see your pictures...

Here is another AC no date serial number range pistol (7384-9912) but with the 40 addded. The established range for the 40 added guns are (9988-5942a), this pistol is clearly in the no date range and must have been in the factory for some reason when the order came down to pantograph the date code on the slide.

This pistol and gun number 9249 are the only two AC no date serial number range guns I have ever seen with the 40 added. To make things even more interesting, Orv Reichert has a 480 coded gun with the 40 added!
