Being worn and handled often accelerates wear. Doesn't take combat conditions for that. Yes most rust and pitting happens post war due to incorrect storage.

I have an RFV PP that's only a few hundred rack numbers away from yours. The finish on mine is also heavily worn. Little doubt both our pistols saw 10 years of hard service before being captured. I'm...

I sold a matched (minus mag) 1940 on GunBroker with about 80% blue for $1750 last spring. This gun is far, far nicer.

It's missing parts, has been poorly chromed, and import marked. Unless it's $100 save your money.

I'd keep the byf.

The Mauser is more desireable to most collectors, has larger crisper markings, and an earlier/rarer date.

Never been a fan of the DOT rifles for no particular reason.

It was being sold by Darrin Weaver and he wrote the book on these things (literally), so buy with confidence. I saw it listed on his webpage a few days ago.. that rifle was not cheap.

Bolt mismatches usually sell for $500-800. Given this is one of the more desireable codes, and in nice shape, I would put it on the high end of that spectrum to be sure. $1600 is way out of the...

Check the back of the frame, or post a picture, this pistol may be a Mauser rework. An E/Mg10 or E/Mg7 on the rear of the frame would confirm this.

Not every Russian capture was reblued, and the finish looks original, but I don't see any signs of holster wear. Very tough call but definitely a P38 to be proud of either way.
