    Finding a Walther P-38

    Lately I've been dreaming of adding a Walther p-38 to my gun collection. Where can I find basic surplus models for a reasonable price?

    You want a shooter or a collector?

    There's a couple shooters at a local gun store:





    This one's reblued and has mismatched part numbers. Not a problem for a shooter. The price is high though, I'd pay about $300-350.






    This one has matching numbers, but I don't think it's a WW2 pistol, I think it might be a later import. Still a good shooter. Probably not worth more than $450.

    P-38s are great guns. Accurate, reliable, parts are easily available, and they're just plain fun. I love the DA/SA with decocker... very modern for a 80 year old design. I'd use one for a CCW, but they're a little heavy and on the large side for a 9mm.

    SOG has some Russian capture P38s that look to be in great overall condition for $449.

    Definitely looking for a shooter, not so much an actual "collector" piece. Fell in love with these pistols after watching the Indiana Jones movies when I was younger, and the movie Defiance sort of revived my interest in finding one again.

    AzB- I did notice that whenever gun shops have P38s the prices tend to be a bit high-end. How do you work on getting them down to a fair buy?

    I usually just make a fair offer. If they say they can't do it, I'll leave a business card and walk. Sometimes they'll call back after a couple weeks with a better counter offer.

    Just to add, you might consider a P1 if you don't care about the WWII vintage gun. I got a really nice one for $300 a few years ago.
