Look what I found. The Mauser 1911...
« on: August 10, 2018, 06:06:07 PM »
I have been pushing for a Mauser 1911 for some years.
Looks like someone listened.


A new Mauser 1911 in .22lr HV has appeared.
Bought one and will report when I know more.

WOW!  Gerben, another remarkable find!  When did Mauser produce these and what is the HV for?  High Velocity?  So many questions ...

It is made by GSG and there is also a Sig Sauer branded version. Sig Sauer owns the Mauser brand name so that makes sense.

It seems that they recently set up a new marketing line of Mauser branded SGS guns, including a StG44 and an AK47 alongside this 1911.


HV = High Velocity. CCI Stingers should work well.

The 1911 arrived today.


Numbered plastic case, manual and toolset with dummy .22 round, chamber flag, 4 front sights, spanner and cleaning rod.


Pistol and magazine have a nice heavy feel to them, mimicks the 1911s weight quite well.

Gerben, what is the story on the KK80 ammunition?

The KK80 ammunition was produced (marketed) by IWKA, successor of DWM under the DWM brand name. The ammunition was made in Durlach, near Karlsruhe. This was in the 1960s.

When IWKA was restructured and the ammo branch shut down, a Mauser sales manager decided to take over the production rights and sell the ammunition under the Mauser brand name. The ammunition was made by Winchester as a subcontractor. The sales manager was a former Winchester representative and still had good contacts within the organization. Mauser successfully sold this ammunition on the home market until the 1980s, it sold quite well.

A batch of this KK80 ammo got some waterdamage and was sold off to employees cheaply in order to dispose of it. So it's still found locally on a regular basis.
