Another Mauser BYF44 dual tone
« on: January 23, 2018, 01:04:12 PM »
I traded an lesser quality E block dual tone for this one, a much nicer C block dual tone. The term "dual tone" is used for a P.38 that has a phosphate frame and slide and a blued barrel.  This P.38 was made in January of 1945.

Here are the pictures

Nice  thumb1

Did these late war Mauser P.38s come with a variety of phosphated and blued parts or were they usually one surface treatment or the other and only the blued barrels found on the unusual "dual-tone" pistols.

P32 the dual tone pistols began in the late b block in December of 1944 and continued the late f block of March 1945 only at the Mauser plant. The phosphate parts were the frame, slide stop and take down lever. The slide, the hammer and the extractor.  None of the interior parts were phosphate coated.  Later there a few P.38's in the e and f blocks that have the barrel also phosphate coated. I don't have one of those yet.

I'm confident that will change  ;)

Another fine specimen!
