    Hi,
    Pictures can be deceiveing and I would ask for a three days inspection, but I will throw my two cents.
    The gun looks OK for a Spreewerke P38, with toolng marks and correct grips for this maker. The finish seems to be origial, with a slight loss of finish at the rear of the slide.
    The visible numbers are matching but you will need to ask for pictures of the serial numbers located in the barrel and in the locking bolt.
    I couldn't make out the suffix letter so I can't date it properly.
    The holster was made by E. G. Leuner GmbH from Bautzen (code bla) in 1944.
    Greetings,
    Douglas.

      Clean looking pistol. Locking block is in the white so that is a good thing. Any paint left in the "S" and "F"?

      What magazine does it come with?
      There's hope with a scope!

          My impression is that this is one from the lot of nicer imports that came in during the mid 90s. The nature of the pitting shown on the frame, slide front and rear barrel block is unusual, given the condition of the rest of the pistol.

          I could go on with several other observations on this one but I will spare everyone for a change. I suspect that you will find a very tiny and light stamped import line of abbreviation and location on the frame under the left grip plate or signs of where it was.

          Even if present it is a nice gun.

            Thank you! So you say this is a reproduction pistol made in the 90s? Can anyone else also confirm this?

              Not a reproduction but a 90's refinished import. Pitting should never be blue and to me that is a telltale sign of it being refinished at some point.

              Personally I wouldn't what that in my P-38 collection unless you are just looking for a inexpensive shooter.

                    Pics are a little dark but from what I can see I like it. The locking block is in the white as it should be and I can see white paint in the "S" and red in the "F".

                    Better pics in outside light would help more.

                      You are the man! Here is a better picture without the white crayon highlights. In its condition how much do you think it’s worth in $?

                        Still a bit dark. If original finish and no import marks here in the East it would sell for $850.00

                          I agree with value estimate and this one seems to have original finish IMO

                              After seeing the pics in daylight I would lower my estimate a bit to $750.00 as the right side looks to have some pitting or either active rust. This side also shows more wear then the left side.
