Intended as a replacement to the widely used Luger P08, the Pistole 38 or P38 for short is a double-action / single-action semi-automatic, magazine fed side arm. The pistol went into service shortly before the start of World War II as a cost effective alternative to the costly Luger P08.
The WE-Tech replica P38 shares some features of its real counterpart. The pistol utilizes a double-action / single-action mechanism as well as a functional decocker; this allows you to chamber a round and then put it into safe to decock the pistol and fire it once again with a long double-action trigger pull. The pistol is full metal with polymer grips.

"Fun gun...but like any WE WW2 Pistol...the Mag leaks...
by Chris H. on 12/23/2015
"Just received mine and pleasantly surprised. WE has picked it up a notch with the P-38. Fit and finish are quite good. Very little rattle when shaken.

It probably has the best double action trigger I've had on a airsoft pistol ever (yes folks, even better than any of my Tokyo Marui or KJW's and they are pretty good). Very smooth through out the pull. Single action is also superb. With most double action pistols, after you take your first shot and the pistol goes to single action mode, there is no stop in the trigger travel before the let off for your next shot. Not so with the WE-P38! There is an actual stop of the trigger travel just before it fires and the let off is very crisp.

Have not had the pistol long enough to get any serious shooting in, but from what I've heard in the forums, this pistol shoots very well. The sight picture is very quick and easy to use.

Another aspect of this pistol, that is very real steel like, is the fact that when you insert a magazine, you must draw the slide back and let it go forward in order for it to actually fire (gee, just like a real pistol huh). The hammer drop safety also operates a bit different. It can only be activated when the hammer is fully cocked. The lever is depressed and the hammer moves forward and the trigger remains back. You then flip the lever up and the pistol is ready to fire. Do not attempt to activate the safety when then the hammer is fully forward. It wont work and forcing it could like damage the action.

The pistol is a lot more slim than I remembered from handling actual P-38 and P-1 pistols many years ago. It is a nice surprise and the pistol feels right at home in the hand and points naturally.

You'll have to get use to the European style magazine release, but that is part of the fun and obviously the gas and bb capacity is limited (this aint no Hi-capa, G series, SIG or M9 for sure).

The WE P-38 is a worthy addition to your airsoft armory. There are several different loadouts (WWII as well as some 70's military) that will do well with this pistol as your sidearm.

I give it top marks all around.

"Amazing pistol!

This is by far the most realistic P-38 replica I have ever seen. The construction is absolutely amazing! Way to go WE-tech! Years ago I had the impression of WE being a low end gun, but their recent year's release are really an impress statement.

If you are skeptical about the price tag, let me begin by saying this gun is probably one of the most realistic Airsoft pistol I have ever seen. The finish is not your ordinary paint, but a gun blue type of finish.

I am more of a collector, and a recreational war gamer as well so I will talk about the performance a bit as well:
This gun shoots fairly accurate with great range. The kick is awesome. It is not your modern M&P or the all-over-the-place 1911 / M9, but when it comes to Airsoft the performance is on par and better!
