    Default Not a Pageant Winner 1939 S/42

    I picked this one up around six years ago, and the old pictures have disappeared from the forum. So, here it is again.

    It is not pretty, but it matches through and through, with one mag too.

    Hi Martin,
    Thanks for posting those excellent photos of your 1939 S/42, it's a textbook example of what I call "poor but honest". A 100% correct gun that has seen a lot of service but has been carefully looked after.
    Regards, Norm

    May not win any beauty pageants, but it has a lot of character.

    Thanks, folks. This also came with a holster, spare mag (no-matching) and loading tool.

    Again, nothing special. But it fills out a rig.

    I like your Second Place pageant contestant.
    To me, a P.08 is like a woman. I'll take a small downgrade in looks for one that is all 100% original, correct and has it all together.
