The Walther P38 originally written Walther P. It was intended to replace the costly Luger P08 , the production of which was scheduled to end in The first designs submitted to the German Army featured a locked breech and a hidden hammer, but the Heer German Army requested that it be redesigned with an external hammer. The P38 concept was accepted by the German military in but production of prototype “Test” pistols did not begin until late Walther began manufacture at their plant in Zella-Mehlis and produced three series of “Test” pistols, designated by a “0” prefix to the serial number.
The third series pistols satisfactorily solved the previous problems for the Heer and mass production began in mid, using Walther’s military production identification code “”. After a few thousand pistols the Heer changed all codes from numbers to letters and Walther was given the “ac” code. Several experimental versions were later created in.
From an engineering perspective the P38 was a semi-automatic pistol design that introduced technical features that are found in other semi-automatic pistols like the Beretta 92 and its M9 sub-variant adopted by the United States military. The shooter could chamber a round, use the safety- decocking lever to safely lower the hammer without firing the round, and carry the weapon loaded.
This lever can stay down, keeping the pistol “on safe” or be immediately returned to the straight position, keeping the weapon safely “ready” with a double-action trigger pull for the first shot. Pulling the trigger cocks the hammer before firing the first shot with double-action operation. The firing mechanism extracts and ejects the first spent round, cocks the hammer, and chambers a fresh round for single-action operation with each subsequent shot — all features found in many modern day handguns.
The moving-barrel design mechanism operates by use of a wedge-shaped falling locking block underneath the breech.

I take it that the barrel and slide were replaced during a rework? Edit: I forgot my original question I wanted an answer to: Other than Barrel, Frame and Slider, where else would there be a serial number?
