You found a very nice example of the P.38. Mauser's production was generally better than Walther's by 1944. Walther turned out some rough examples, but not nearly as poor looking as Spreewerke.

The ACES II ejection seat has a large survival pan under the cushion. Food, water, and other necessities along with the rifle will fit with room to spare. But not much.

The finish has not flaked off. That is commonly known as 'blood pitting' but as far as it actually being that is up for speculation.

Post-war steel frame P.38's command a premium on the used market as they did when new.

I will be buying a couple of things I've been putting off and possibly a new firearm, but I haven't decided yet. I have other hobbies that are vying for this money with my firearms hobby.

I would have to agree with others, a .22 steel pistol of one make or another. A Colt Woodsman would be high on the list.

Very nice collection.

The Beretta and Glock have no proofs or date codes? That's very unusual.

Deutsche Staats Polizei also purchased the Walther P5 and HK P7.

The P5 is a bit more hand-filling front to back, but not much wider than the P6. Not certain how the P7 grip compares.

That's a great looking former Polizei Pistol. Did you send that back to SIG-Sauer to have the slide refinished or did you buy it in that condition?

Nice P6.

I was not aware Chip McCormick or Mec-Gar was offering double stack 10mm magazines for RIA models.

I've never had any trouble with the factory mag that came with my 10mm dual stack.

Well, you certainly won't notice it in a S&W 4006. That feels more like the recoil from a 1911 shooting .45ACP. More like what I describe as a 'rolling push' than snappy recoil.

That's a nice 1911. Congratulations. It's up into Wilson territory as far as price.

Is this pistol hand-fitted? Forged parts? Hand checkering?
