Yes, the .380 will eventually beat the gun to death. I observed deformations around the barrel retainer area at the front of the trigger guard.


.32 functions just fine.

Nice find. While I like the 380 round, it seems to put more stress in the pistol frame. Also the change to a two piece backstrap, instead of the old one piece backstrap, causes instability and damage. While it seem like an isolated issue to most, Iíve had to replace one on my American Eagle.

Very interesting,I did not know that the Knil used M1930 Mauser pistols.
Believed they were using C96 from WW1.Have seen info that German troops at the end of
the great war,retreated thru the south of Holland (Limburg ) and left there weapons on the Dutch
border.Some of the Mauser's found the way to the Knil.

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: 1914 Police Issued

I have a friend who has about 70 pocket models. The majority of them are Weimar police marked examples. The marking variations in the police pistols alone is fascinating area of collecting. Yours like most show that they were carried and saw use which only proves authenticity in my book.

I stand corrected. It is a very nice example. It seems most of these went to China and were used hard. Many were later exported from China to the US where they were refurbished. There are some that were apparently imported from Germany in the 30s and some of those were well kept and in close to or pristine condition today. The hot salt blue finish on a pristine example is something to behold. I have always been fascinated by the C96. Many have told me they think it is an ugly pistol, I only see the beauty of it.

Its an M30 stock, but the Mauser banner is very faint. The stock iron has been replaced at some time.


The serial number  is not far from known Dutch East Indies variations, so it may have been a KNIL example.

Vilm,

It is a very nice late example. Unless I am mistaken isn't the stock for an earlier variation?
