WORLD WAR II Nazi German “SPREEWERKE” cyq Code P.38 Semi-Auto C&R Pistol Wermacht 9x19mm Sidearm!
WORLD WAR II Nazi German “SPREEWERKE” cyq Code P.38 Semi-Auto C&R Pistol
Wermacht 9x19mm Sidearm!
Here we present a WW2 German Spreewerke “cyq” code P.38 Pistol, made circa the middle of World War II. The P38 was designed by Walther to replace the Luger P.08 as the standard service weapon for the Third Reich’s Wermacht. The Luger was a ground-breaking design, but quite expensive to produce. The P38 was the first locking breech pistol to feature the double/single action firing mechanism with a decocking safety lever, a prelude to many modern pistols to come. It also features a loaded chamber indicator that is both visible and tactile, extending out of the top rear of the slide, just above the hammer. The falling block locking mechanism was also carried into future pistol designs. Many of these design features are found in the Beretta 92 or U.S. M9 pistols.
The Wermacht, which was the unified armed forces of Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1945, was the primary buyer of these pistols, but the German police also used about 6,800 P38s. The left side of the slide is marked “P.38” and “cyq”, the code for Spreewerke. The frame and slide bear the acceptance marks “Eagle/88”.
The overall condition is near fine. Original blue finish. The action is strong. The bore is bright. The numbers match (4441 H). A hand engraved “W” can be found just in front of the trigger guard. The top of the left grip had what appears to read “WAT” crudely hand engraved.
