    WW2 Service Pistols

    I'm working on a display of the various WW2 Service Pistols. Here is what I have so far.

    A Weimar Double Stamp P08 that was re-barreled in 9mm for WW2.
    A pristine 1943 P38, with matching,pristine hard shell holster and spare mag.
    A 1937 Nambu Type 14. This was a bring back from Tarawa, and a gift to me along with a Japanese battle flag from Luzon.
    A Radom Vis P35, Nazi Stamped.
    A 1943 Remington Rand 1911A1. This has a period correct US&S top end.

    When I finish accumulating, I'll work on the display. I have a line on a beautiful Nazi Hi-Power and a Canadian Ingliss Hi-Power. They will probably join the pile soon. None of these are import marked.

    Sorry my photo is so bad.

    fantastic line up.. Get that P 35 up there with a TT and Webely and you will have mother of all WW 2 side arms line up.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Thanks! I will pick up a TT but need to wait for a Russian one to come along. The P35 is waiting for me, and I have a line on a couple of Webley's, too.

    Eventually I'd like a later P08, too, as this is a WW1 double stamp, that was reissued for WW2.

    Thanks!

    The Nambu was a gift. My friend's dad was an ordnance officer in WW2, tasked with T/E of captured enemy weapons. What a job.

    He asked what he should do with the weapons when he was done with them, and was told to do whatever he wanted to with them. Toss them in the ocean if he wanted to, they said. Ha. He sent them home instead. Smart man. My buddy has some para trooper carbines, complete sniper rifles and piles of beautiful rifles, pistols, swords, bayonets, helmets. All are mint.

    This Nambu is in excellent condition, but my friend has some that look new, so he gave me this "junker" for my display. I bought a 500rd box of ammo for it, but have not fired it yet. I'm told they shoot very well. I also picked up a holster and some other stuff. He gave me some original WW2 issue ammo for my display, too.

    You'll need a model 1934 Beretta .380, too.

    I have a beautiful Sauer 38(H), a Sauer 1913, a very nice Mauser Sidelatch 6.35mm and a mint Webley & Scott .32. The Sidelatch needs an extractor, though it still works fine, and the Webley has a cracked grip panel on one side.

    A friend has a minty HSc that I have been trying to score. No luck so far. Ha.

    I might post pics of the pocket pistols, too, but would need to get them out of the safe. The 1913, 38(H) and Sidelatch were all WW2 bringbacks.
