P.38 Pistol - 0 Series, 2nd variation
The marking on the left side of the slide tell the story of the Zero Series P.38s. They still maintain the Walther Banner logo (hints of a commercial origin), but with a number 0 prefixing the serial number (indicating something non-standard). These were the trial pistols made and issued to German military units for field trials and evaluation.
This 2nd or transitional variation is identified by exposed (standard) extractor, coupled with a rectangular base firing pin. This combination of features is extremely rare. In fact, this is arguably the most rare of WWII military P.38s.
This piece is a restored, former Russian captured pistol with an armourers replacement barrel, replaced and numbered to the gun during the war (possibly due to battle damage). It is in a similarly field depot repaired joa 1943 hardshell holster.
