Hsc sear variation...early and later
« on: August 07, 2018, 05:50:03 AM »
Hi Gentlemen !
Probably I'm discovering the "hot water" (as we use to say in Italy...), but this morning, looking at my HSc's, I noticed that my October 1941 has a sear different from my later ones... I mean that on my older pistol the sear has two "wings" and against these the hammer lays when fully down. In later pistols these "wings" disappear and the hammer is no more in touch with the sear...
Looking on the net I saw that actually this modification occurred at some time...
Do you know why and when this modification was done?
Thank you so much !
Fausto

Hi. That modification was the result of a patent issue with Walther.

Vlim is absolutely correct.  The on-going patent issues forced Mauser to modify the Sear design about serial number 860000 (September 1943).

Thank you Sirs,
I knew something about the patent issue  with Walther, but I didn't realize how the modification has been done...
Thanks again for your prompt and competent reply !

Enjoy your trip.  Sounds like a great one.  Good eye and good question on that sear.
