P.38 Pistol - ac 43, 2nd variation

The second variation ushered in the main design changes (minor though they were) to the P.38.   It is differentiated from the earlier ac 43 by the hump on the edge at the top of the trigger guard where the trigger axle is, no secondary relief cut behind the extractor, and no lightening hole in the frame well.  The ac should be stacked atop the 43 to differentiate it from an ac 43 single line variation.

This first piece is in excellent original condition, all matching with both correct magazines.  It is in a proper bml 43 hardshell holster.

Starting in 1943 (examples reported in late 1942) one rarely finds a plum to red colored frame.  This was due to variations in the bluing process.  This finish was very thin and usually shows wear on the grip strap.

This second piece is a red frame 1943 in very good original condition, all matching with both correct magazines.
