And very nice looking gun for a good price!
I think I just need a border guard outfit now so I can patrol the neighborhood

I know what a P38 is.

We also have 2 sequentially serial numbered P1's.

But I have no idea what a P4 is. From the pictures it looks like any other P38/P1 variant to me.

Can someone explain...

Was a limited run “upgrade” to the p1 in which less than 8000 were made. Barrel is 1” shorter than the P38/P1 and has a firing pin block. Also, no safety (de-cocker only)

I disagree, I would NOT shoot this P4. If I did it would be very sparingly.

Many guns aren't worth the gable of having them get damaged by firing them.

Like many of more more collectible weapons, I’ll probably shoot it a few times using lower pressure ammo (Blazer brass).

Cleaned up and looks like new (as new as surplus can be)
