I have a P.38 that was given to me that one of the three uncles that served during WW II and when the war was over his unit raided a firearms manufactory in Germany and each member took one as a war throphy.
I have seen pictures of other P.38's with black and brown handgrips. Can any one tell me why the two differant colors, what the markings mean and the original cost was and what it is worth today.
Discription of mine: Has black handgrips, Left side has the markings: P.38 byf44 and 9112 s three times it also has the Natzi emblem with eagle on top on the right side, also found other markings that looks like a eagle or a airplane (poorly marked) with this below: Wa/8A135 three times once on the left side and twice on the right side with the Natzi emblem in the center.
Also it has a holster but don't know it is the correct one. The holster has P 35 stamp on the inside.
