Description:

This is a very rare Walther First Model, Zero Series P.38 pistol. Consisting of the first block of approximately 965 pistols made on contract for Germany after the adoption of Walther's Heeres Pistole as the P.38, the First Model Zero Series included features that would be eliminated from future production, such as a rectangular profile firing pin, concealed extractor and commercial high polish blue finish. The left side of the slide is marked with the Walther banner followed by "P.38" and the serial number, with matching serial numbers also located on the front of the barrel lug and left side of the frame above the trigger guard, unnumbered magazines, and the matching partial serial number on the underside of the locking block and on the interior of the checkered black plastic grips. Included is an unmarked brown leather holster and a spare magazine. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 90% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish, showing bright wear along the high edges and mild handling marks overall. The grips are also excellent with sharp checkering, and the holster is very fine with some mild scuffs and cracks. Mechanically excellent.
