Four Mauser Pocket Pistols - Need Help w/Identification
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:48:37 PM »
I recently purchased a small group of, I believe 1910-1914 Mauser pocket pistols. This is a post of the first one. I'll post other guns to follow.  I've never had any pistols from pre-WWI before. 


It would help me learn about these neat little pistols if I could have some help identifying the year and model of these Mausers, beginning with this one. I've tried to find a serial listing to help determine year of manufacture.  The closest I've come, is that this Mauser is that this pistol is 1910/34, Manufactured from 1936 to 1941, serial number range 401800-429000. That this is a t[/size]ype 2 serial number 423000-429000 milled slot for slide serial number. It seems correct, based on serial number range.  Can someone confirm whether that is correct or not?[/color]

Welcome to the forum! Here is a link to learn a bit about Mauser's pocket models; https://docplayer.net/29755302-Mauser-pocket-pistols-of-the-1910-design.html. It use to be available here but it is difficult to find now. I appreciate your posting a separate thread for each example. I will give you a brief answer to each and identify the year of manufacture when I can access my data.

This is a 1914 standard post war commercial model that was made in the late 1920s.
