WW2 P38

Post by M67 »

When I was about ten years old I searched every part of the family house. Finally in the attic, I found this pistol under a wooden floor. I searched for the ammo also, but I could not find it.
The pistol was from my father. Then he discovered I had found her. He showed it. We also fired a few bullets a couple of times, disassembled it together, cleaned it and re-oiled it. I legalized the pistol years ago. She is byf43. The gun is a precious memory of my father, who passed away in 2011.

Great Heirloom for your family.

Did you remove/clean the firing pin & empty chamber indicator? It was pretty tricky for me to get the cover snapped back into place!! LOL

Neat story and family tale. So like the look of the reddish grips on those p-38s...

It is not a fairytale. It does completely true.

I know! Hard to believe but a huge part of my collection is from attics, old houses etc.

You know for me as a collector, over here we never had to hide our guns or had a major war or two fought in the area that made such wonderful finding stories. Our Civil war is now 160+ years away so anything found in a barn from that time has been found or is in pretty bad condition. I so like reading how you find not only cool guns, but many times exotic eastern European arms to boot.
