From the onset, the P38, the world's first true double-action pistol, proved to be an exceptional military pistol. The weapon is robust, accurate and well balanced and field stripping and maintenance are simple and rapid. The P38 uses a double action trigger design similar to that of the earlier Walther PPKs, and a loaded chamber indicator is also incorporated. The fixed-barrel design mechanism operates by use of a wedge-shaped locking block underneath the breech. The standard safety also acts as a decocker, and is located at the left side of the slide. This pistol is a reworked post-war version that features a fixed blade front sight with a rear notch, a 2-position, decocking safety, and an 8-round magazine. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
