Model 1910/14 “New Model” Production Date
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:51:55 AM »
Hi everyone,
I’m new to the forum but not to collecting.  I have several Mauser products including an S42 Luger,  BYF 43 P-38 and wartime HSc.  I just picked up a 1910 New Model ( in 6.35mm obviously).  It’s in great shape with all the correct features for its type and a friend who works in the store told me he test fired it and it shot well.  I am looking for the production year.  I can’t find serial number tables anywhere.  The serial number is 1004XX.  I know it’s between 1914-1919 but I’d like to pin down the year.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have my data with me but I am certain its early 1914-1915. I will do my best to follow up when I can access my records.

Saxon 's date matches the data I have but I think it may be in error. 1917 was well into WWI and I do not think the production of .25 caliber pocket models were a priority during late war production. I in fact believe production of the .25 caliber model may of even stopped at some point during the war. The table both Saxon and I are using is an estimation of annual production so it is not exact. I feel more comfortable saying sometime between 1915 and 1917. The table shows 11,000 in 1915, 7000 in 1916, 5000 in 1917, 5000 in 1918, 9000 in 1919 and 10,000 in 1920. So with the numbers rounded to the nearest 1000 production slowed considerably between 1915 and 1918. The demand and production of the .32 caliber was 2-8x more and the C-96 would of been ramped up as well and I am not even including rifle and machinegun production.
