Thank you VERY much for the information.  I had never noticed the eagle on the slide. I don't shoot it as much as some other weapons because of its age and the fact that I plan to pass it on to my son (I inherited it from my dad, who purchased it in 1952). It does shoot really well using S&B ball ammunition.  The light recoil allows me to use "triple-tap" groups with pretty good accuracy (8-10" groups) at 7-10 yards (adequate for defensive shooting). Thanks especially for the advice on the wooden grips. Dad did keep a set of rather gaudy "pearl" grips for it, although he preferred the wood.  I think I might put the pearl grips on it, as you suggest.  Thanks also for the info on extra magazines. Think I may go look for one today.

Welcome to the forum, Goose!  Not quite sure what you mean by "tracked to a U.S. citizen".  Yes ... anyone over the age of 21 with no felonies can purchase without permits.  If you do not have at least a Type 03 (Collector of Curios and Relics) Federal Firearms License you will have to ship to a licensed gun dealer who will charge you a fee (about $35) to handle the transfer.

Anything else, let me know.

Dear Run,  Happy you posted your great find, but I think it may be posted in the wrong thread.  Anxious to see some photos of it and the holster.  It sounds like a great gun.  The full serial number will help.  We share on this forum the full serial numbers and other indentification factors on examples.

Gentlemen


I'm new to this forum.  Like other forums I've looked at, it's clear that there are some extremely well informed people here.  So I'm hoping you folks can provide me with some insight.


I've just acquired an HSc, 7.65 cal, Ser No 807925.  The only markings are the eagle over N on the right side of the trigger guard next to the grip and on the right side of the slide near the muzzle.  As best as I can determine this gun was a so-called commercial issue manufactured in 1942.  I was fortunate to find a very clean example.  The blueing is nearly 100% intact with some holster wear at the very front end of the slide and on the usual outside corners on the front half of the gun.


I'm trying to get a sense of who might have purchased this gun originally.  I realize this is a crystal ball question with no possible definitive answer.  Nonetheless there must have been some generalizations or I perhaps a short list of the types of people who were purchasing commercial HSc's during the war years.  I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts.


Best regards,


Dave

To be more specific, your Wartime Commercial HSc was produced in December 1942.  In answer to your question, private sale of firearms in Germany was restricted to government authorized purchasers only. This would include military personnel, the political elite, and special interest groups such as friendly foreign government dignitaries.

Hope that helps.  Anything else, let me know.

Thanks Warbird


I appreciate knowing it's manufacture date that accurately.  It also confirms what I thought about who could buy it.  I recall hearing that Germany exercised a fair amount of gun control during the Nazi era.


Best regards,


Dave

Your HSc production date was about 1973.  Hope that helps.
