My father-in-law passed away and we found a couple of WWII pistols that have been in a bag for nearly 70 years (He was at the Remmigen (sp?) bridge). One is a P38 ac44, with a "matching" holster (SN penciled onto the inside of the flap) and 2 magazines. Everything seems to make it a Walther, EXCEPT, the bakelite grips have 5 instead of 6 broken grip lines, and the inside of the grips have by Spreewerke circled numbers (7 and 12). the SN is 9911g, which is very near the end of that production run (from what I have read). The 2 magazines are not matched, note the different crimp patterns. There is also a 4 stamped on the front sight blade.
ALSO, a little help indentifying the the brown grip (32cal., 7mm ???) Belgian pistol, and the collection photo is added for your enjoyment. The H&R Young America 'gut shooter' needs work, and is a little scary, as there is no pin for the cylinder. The "fob" on the bayonet is interesting, too.
Thanks for any patience shown a newbie. VERY much appreciate any help.
