Hereafter some scans of the French 1950 P38 Manual. When Oberndorf and Mauser were under French control, Mauser produced around 40.000 P38 for the French forces. The French produced for the P38 at least two types of manuals mainly to cover the need of the gunsmith. This manual has been published in the same period as the one for the P08 and it is sharing the same layout. The P08 and P38 manuals are rare add-on for the post WWII Mauser production under French control.
