Default Is this M38 genuine? Hoping for expert advice

Hi All,

Would be very appreciative of advice as to whether this M38 (ET68, 6311) is genuine or a copy. The seller maintained that it is genuine but was hoping for some expert advice.

Thanks,

Brendan

If your wanting to buy an un touched original M38 DD, there's a fantastic one for sale on the E Stand at the moment.
