HSc Instruction Manuals
« on: June 28, 2017, 08:42:53 AM »
Throughout its production history from 1940 to 1945 (Wartime) and 1968 to 1977 (New Model) there were ten HSc Instruction Manuals published by Mauser.  The following photos depict each of these.  For the collector, they can be individually and conveniently stored in plastic DVD cases without the center posts.

All the Wartime Manuals measure approximately 105mm x 150mm (4-1/8" x 5-7/8").  There were three designs and six variations printed in German.  The New Model Instruction Manuals were printed individually in German, French, and English measuring 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and a later Combined Language version measuring 4-1/4" x 5-3/4".

New Model.  Note that the English versions list .380 caliber before .32 caliber since it was available in this Model and seen as preferential in the U.S. market:

Thank you Warbird for the great information.  One of our members collects these on a big time basis.  Now, I know what he is talking about.  And now I can look at gunshows with some better knowledge.
