The AC43 on the slide denotes your P.38 was made by Walther in 1943.

Early 1943 Walther made. The grips were normally brown at this point, but yours can be a transition pistol. They went from a stack stamp to a line stamp and changed grip colors.


Very nice pistol.

The grips are a plastic material and when held up to the light has what looks like a wood grain design. Could they have changed colors over the years.
