MOST OF THESE PISTOLS WERE LOST ON THE RUSSIAN FRONT AND A VERY FEW SURVIVED, BUT THERE COULD BE THE ONLY A FEW EXIST IN THIS ORIGINAL ALMOST MINT CONDITION ESPECIALLY WITH ORIGINAL MATCHING DOUBLE EAGLE 359 INSPECTOR PROOFED ON THE BOTTOM MAGAZINE SPINE. MORE AND MORE PEOPLE HAVE STARTED GETTING INTERESTED IN P.38. THERE IS A BIG COLLECTORS DEMAND FOR SO VERY FEW EXTREMELY RARE EARLY PRODUCTION P.38'S. IN 1940 THERE WERE 13,714 ZERO SERIES P.38 PRODUCED STARTING FROM S/N 01 TO S/N 013714.
