    Default Help identifying walther p.38

    Please help me identify my walther p.38. From the little research I've done all I can conclude is that the grips appear to have been replaced.

    Assuming complete gun, any photos of it as such? At least R & L!
    Best!

    Looks like an AC45 which means it was produced by Walther in 1945.

    Looks to be a super example too! All looks correct, even the fnh (Czech) made barrel! Even the large case "B" on the locking block is correct. Not a light-enough pic of the grips. They appear okay.......

    Looks like a pristine example, did you inherit it?

    I'll just say +1 that the grips are probably original to the pistol. I've owned several ac45 pistols with the black grips - they usually appear on Mauser made pistols, but it's accepted that some were used especially late. Please don't swap them out
