Walther P38 "AC NO DATE"

Model: 1051

Walther P38 "AC NO DATE"
This p38 is the rare German ac no date variation made by Walther in 1940. It is the scarcest variation of the military P38 pistols. This militaria pistol is one of the first serial produced pistols made by the Germans. The P38 was the successor of the much more expensive to make Luger P08. Several series were launched. The o-serie, code 480 and then this very rare bird the AC NO date. AC is the code for Walther (Walther Waffenfabrik, Zella-Mehlis)
This variation was produced for a little over a month in 1940 in a quantity of 2570. (#7271 to #9840).
Later Walther was told to mark the P.38 pistols with the year of manufacture. (AC40)
Examples of this AC NO date variation are normally found in very poor condition. No doubt that a lot of these went to Russia during the Winter War 1941/1942.
BUT - this paticular  P.38 pistol is in very nice condition.  It rates 90 -92%.
About 115 AC NO date pistols are registered today – not many out of a quantity of 2570 produced!
This variation is marked on the left side of the slide “ P38/ac “ and then the serial number (7673).
All of the small parts are Eagle/359 inspection marked .
Unfortunately the magazine does not match this particular pistol but otherwise the numbers are all matching to this pistol #7673.
Naturally this P38 has no import markings.
A very fine Walther box is included in this sale along with an extra magazine
This is your chance to get the scarcest military made P38 pistol. This pistol is a “must have” for the serious P38 collector.
