Walther P38 (3/18)

List item
Approved

The Walther P38 is a 9mm semi-automatic pistol that was developed in Germany at the start of World War II. It was intended to be an upgrade to the costly and aging Luger P08. The P38 used a double action / single action trigger and a locked breech, similar to the Beretta M9. This was the first of its kind, giving the shooter the ability to chamber a round then drop the hammer without firing by using the safety / decocking lever. Produced by both Walther and Mauser starting in 1938, the P38 is still in service today with military and law enforcement throughout the world.
