Default Bought the P38

Posted on this about a week ago, the seller came down to a more agreeable price, so the deal was made. Happy to get this one! Chris....

Nice rig . . . particularly once you were able to persuade the seller to get "right" on the price!

Holster is 44 dated. He had another thread asking about the set.

Beautiful set! I think those hard shell holsters with that late date are pretty hard to find!

Thanks for all the comments, yes indeed it was the ndk holster that sealed the deal for me so to speak! Very happy to get it, and happy to keep the history with it! Chris....

Nice pickup! Mauser generally didn't produce serial numbered mags for the P.38, so these should be blank.
