Your rack/stand is very nice. I have found trays are the most efficient use of space. Regards,

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: 1914 Police Issued

Great group picture. I know a collector who has about 70 police marked pocket model Mausers. Are you sure yours are all police markings? At least one looks like its regimentally marked but I am not certain.

Don't know what you have done. If not forced together the upper should come off the back of the lower. Difficult if not impossible to diagnose via forum. Recommend you take it to a competent gunsmith or send to someone who knows Mauser 's C96 pistols. I might be able to suggest someone if I knew where you are located.

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Re: Stock and grip doubts
« on: January 02, 2020, 07:57:01 AM »
It has been refinished. They blued parts that should be fire blued and the blue appears to be a hot salt instead of a cold rust type of blue. Don't pay more than $1000-1200 for everything. It has no collector value and will have little increase in value over time.

With the stock and the story I would be suspect of the pistol as well. It may look new but have been refinished/restored. Please be careful as C96 deals can involve serious $.

Ok, well can't tell you anything about the pistol but the stock is not an original Mauser stock. It either a reproduction or for another C95 styled gun like an Astra 900. As for the grips I can't say for certain. They look new and just not correct.

1. No
2. No
3. You have a cool $100 toy! It is just a fake gun used as a movie prop, they spent a lot of time on the internals.

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Re: Help needed identifying this C96
« on: December 28, 2019, 08:42:28 AM »
It is difficult to tell which is which from a group of photos. Can you post photos here with descriptions of what you are telling/asking?
At least one of the C96s shown is a Red-9 that has been re-finished. The one with SN 97882. If its not 9mm it has been relined too? Yes, the grip numbers should match the frame number. A re-finished, all matching C96 should make $1000-1500.

Feeding issues are usually magazine related. I have not found aftermarket magazines to preform well. I would recommend finding a good original magazine.

Matt,

It is a very nice example. The grip SNs is a bit confusing but it was made while a war was going on.If you believe the story it would be unlikely that they were replaced. Can you post a picture of the right side of the chamber? The holster appears period correct. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable on holsters will comment.

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: Trigger Guard Eagle
« on: November 01, 2019, 08:09:40 AM »
I would agree. I would value a Imperial 1914 with the TGE in the $500-700 range if in very good to excellent condition. It is important to know that war time finishes are usually not of the same quality as earlier or later production. So an Imperial 1914's finish should not be compared the same way as other examples. Both of pardt's examples have very nice finishes from what I can see. He was also fortunate to have noticed the Eagle and knew what it was when the seller and other buyers did not.

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: Mauser 1914 Pistel Serial Numbers
« on: October 24, 2019, 07:43:32 AM »
It does have an Imperial acceptance marking. Unfortunately the loss of the original finish and overall condition is not great. In todays market I would place an auction estimate on it in the $250-300 range.

That is an early one made in 1915. It could have an Imperial acceptance mark in front of the rear sight. Pictures?
