Model 1934 Pistol / Block script 1934

This just in.

An example of a late M1934 with the block script slide address. Eagle N proofed. Also note the slightly off placed last digit of the serial.

Model HSC Pistol / French phosphated HSc

A nice example of a French phosphated HSc with a pinned lanyard loop at the bottom of the frame.

The color goes from green to a dull black.

Model HSC Pistol / Plated Interarms HSc
« on: February 06, 2020, 12:59:16 PM »
Just arrived.

Weird plated HSc. No serials and period proofs on the outside. Just recent mandatory proofs from 2019.

Interarms logo, but no sign of FBM or Ulm proofs. Serial number applied under the slide and behind the left grip.

The disconnector spring is of the later type, which does not seem to tie in with the low serial number.

Model HSC Pistol / HSc barrel oddballs
« on: January 02, 2020, 09:25:51 AM »
A couple of HSc barrels I picked up along the way in Oberndorf.

Post war HSc barrel in 7,65 / .32 acp which had it's heat treatment done, but was not polished or fitted afterwards. Not numbered.

Post war HSc barrel in 9mmK / .380 which has been turned into a cutaway barrel. Not numbered.

Post war HSc barrel in 7,65 / .32 acp which has never been finished due to tolerance issues. The'A' is for 'Ausschuss' or 'Reject'.

Parkerized HSc barrel in 7,65 / .32 acp with end number 096 with a seriously bulged barrel. Finish suggests it came from a French assembled HSc.

Model HSC Pistol / Mauser HSc V10 - experimental
« on: December 19, 2019, 09:17:01 AM »
Mauser HSc V10 had another trick up it's sleeve that I just recently noticed.

 The 1968+ version of the Mauser Hsc has a disconnector system that deviates from the wartime version. In the wartime version, the disconnector was worked with a vertical latch which require an inlet in the lefthand grip panel. When the HSc was redesigned for production in 1968, the design was slightly altered and a flat leaf spring was pinned into a cut recess within the frame, doing away with the need to mill an inlet in the grip panel.

 This little slightly bent new leaf spring did give problems and it is not uncommon to see them in such a deformed state, that the disconnector is no longer touched or worked by the leaf spring.

 Under the management of Prof. Dr. Rolf Gminder it was decided to alter the design and to introduce a new type of wire spring, which worked satisfactory.

 In production you can see the modifications when the left hand grip panel is removed.

 The first version will have a small cutout in which the flat leaf spring is inserted and then pinned into place with two punch strikes to the left and right of the cutout.

 The second version will have the leaf spring cutout, but the leaf spring is no longer installed, which also does away with the need to pin it in place, so no punch marks to the left and right of the cutout. The new wire spring is held in place with a small punch strike at the rear of the magazine well.

 The third version follows the wire spring placement of version two, but the Original leaf spring cutout is eliminated.

 Which brings us to pistol V10. In this pistol, the original leaf spring has been removed, the punch marks with which it was secured are still visible. A wire spring has been installed, but differs from the ultimate production placement in shape, size and method of fixing it to the frame. There is no doubt that pistol V10 (in 9mmK / .380ACP) was subjected to many shooting tests, as the frame in front of the trigger, where the barrel lock plunger is located, has started to deform extensively.

 It can be concluded that the main purpose of V10 was to test the altered disconnector spring set-up, which did go into production in a slightly simplified form.

 The spring construction and deformation highlighted on V10:

Model HSC Pistol / Mauser HSc cutaway
« on: September 24, 2019, 05:19:28 PM »
Mauser HSc cutaway made to order by Prof. Dr. Gminder for his private collection.

Made from new, unproofed and unnumbered HSc parts by the Mauser school.

Interesting order number 666.

Model HSC Pistol / Alex Seidel

The grave of the father of the HSc and co-founder of Heckler & Koch, Alex Seidel.

Other designs from his hand are the HK4 and P7 pistols.

Although he did not get along with co-founder Theodor Koch, they are buried next to each other at the upper cemetery in Oberndorf am Neckar.

Model 1914 Pistol / Military marked holster
« on: August 07, 2019, 10:46:44 AM »
Found this holster locally:

Upon arrival I found both a Bekleidungsamt XI marking and a makers marking from F. Bierenbreier from Kehl.

Will go nicely with a military marked Mauser 1914 I have.

Found this nice old DWM .25 auto box. It specifically refers to the Mauser automatic pistol, should be ca. 1911.

Model 80SA / 90DA Pistol / Serial ranges, current status
« on: March 28, 2019, 09:03:30 AM »
I have been observing and regestering DA serial numbers for a few years now. The number of samples is now large enough to draw some early conclusions.

The observed numbers run from 90002000 to 90015000 and from 90020000 to 90026000.

It seems that 90015000 to 90019999 are missing. None observed in this range yet.

This suggests that no more than
19000 were made.

It would be interesting to see serial numbers:
Below 90002000.
Between 90015000 and 9002000.
Above 90026000.

The Compact DA is rare, it does not exceed 2000 at this time. Those observed fall between 91001000 and 91002200.
