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.

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.

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?

Model 1934 Pistol / Re: Early 1934 Naval Pistol Marking
« on: October 18, 2019, 08:24:31 AM »
I think we both saw it about the same time. It looks like Mr. Summers will get it but it will be interesting to watch the auction. I too have a Eagle/M example. Mine is a bit earlier in the 400,000 range. It is what I call a 1914/34 transitional, MAUSER WERKE... address but with a straight grip. I have noted that there are 2 different early Eagle/M type eagles that were followed by the large Eagle/M marking. The German Navy marked Mauser pockets are an interesting study. It is a shame that because of the premiums that will be paid to acquire a nice example, nice commercial examples are altered. A collector has to be wary of any Navy marked examples because of it.

There are many anomalies among the KM marked Mauser pocket models. There are also many faked markings. These early Eagle/M markings are not that common but I have not seen a faked one that I know of. The fakers have usually replicated the Eagle/S/M markings. If well done a really good fake would be hard to catch which is probably why they are a target for fraud. I would recommend to tread carefully if a collector has decided to pursue collecting KM marked examples. Without a in hand exam and knowledge of other like markings it would be hard for me to pay top dollar for it. The over all condition is much better than most KM marked examples I have seen but???

My, my, it does get around. It is good to know who you can trust and perhaps better to know who you cannot.

Ok, Well I have started a thread on Stills forum about the marking. I have some doubts about it being genuine. I also spoke to the dealer who sold the pistol to the current dealer. The original pistol showed wear on the sideplate. So, I think shenanigans could be a very nice description of what is going on. Buyer beware!

Val, Did the grips change from plain to DR(Railway) marked and then were they changed back? These "DR" marked grip is something that has recently turned up. I saw an example of them a year or two ago on another dealers site then another one, or the same one, turned up on Pre98's site. It is curious to me that it had not shown up before. I am also curious as to province of the marking as it is unique as a marking as far as I know. It is a very large mark burned into the grip which is unusual.

Val, Great catch. I have found dealers to be dealers. They are out to make a buck and some are willing to commit fraud to do it. It seems that there is little repercussion to fleecing buyers and there are some buyers who are in it for profit and not because they have an interest in history or what they collect. To them it is an alternative stock market and they trust dealers because they are not familiar with what they are buying. Sometimes, when confronted with the truth these investors will not accept that there example has been boosted preferring to believe what their dealer told them. This is a facet of collectable firearms that is rarely brought to light or discussed which helps to perpetuate it.

Regards,
