I would like to purchase a Walther P-38. I cannot compare the two, because I do not own a P-38. Nice pistol Waltherfan. I have heard they (the P-38) have a very fast rate of fire.

If you asked that question on a Walther p-38 forum, I'm sure you'd get a different answer than you will here.

Agreed. We're sort of biased here.

It's much easier to build an integrally silenced P38 than an integral 1911.

Aside from that, 1911 all the way, for any other purpose.

My P1 is fun to shoot and I enjoy plinking with it. However it will never replace my 1911's for serious range work or home defense. Of course YMMV

I love the looks of a P-38. I own only one and have never carried it.

If it were available with a good trigger and a decent caliber, I would carry it.

Until then I'll have to settle for the 1911.
