Model HSC Pistol / Re: Kriegsmarine production date?
« Last post by gwpeeler on February 23, 2020, 05:13:23 PM »
Finally got to see and photograph my friend's Hsc.  Kriegsmarine marking on the left trigger guard only. None on the front. Unusual marking on the bottom of the gripstrap. Any idea what this is?  Gun came with 2 mags and a nazi marked holster. My friend inherited this gun from a former Marine who served in the battle of Okinawa. He always claimed he took it off a dead Japanese soldier there. Is there any record of Hscs  going to Japan? It seems pretty unlikely to us that the gun made it to a Japanese soldier on Okinawa in April 1945 after manufacture in July 1944. Maybe a good war story?  Any ideas or info appreciated.  Thanks,
Wayne

Model 1914 Pistol / 1914/34 Navy

Recently aquired 1914/34 with Ostee fleet property number on the grip strap, but no eagle M. Magazine is close but not quite a match. This pistol was shot a decent amount judging by the internals. Good fortune was with me as only one other person had bid and that was only the min bid.

Sounds like either the Disconnector, Sear, or Trigger Bar is the culprit here.  I know I don't have to tell you, Philip, about the danger/possibility of a full-auto malfunction if the Hammer is down and returning with the Slide, and the Chamber is loaded.

So I tried out the rough condition var. 3 km I bought just after Xmas. It was fairly accurate, however it refused to shoot single action after the first shot as in it would function fine as long as you shot double action but the hammer wouldn't cock as the gun cycled, but double action worked just fine. Maybe when I get ambitious I will take a look and see why.

Model 1934 Pistol / Re: Block script 1934

So I was going through my pistols today and I noticed that there is three different styles of the address used on the 1934. I thought I owned 2 of the block style but really only one is like yours the other one is kinda a cross between the block and the style most commonly seen

Model HSC Pistol / Re: French phosphated HSc

I think its just general wear from use.


It is also not impossible that the guns acquired several coats during service.

Any thoughts on how it got in that condition?   


I also have a French made phosphate but mine doesn't have the lanyard loop. The finish has held up pretty good. Mine has a couple black spots but this one looks like a piece of phosphate chipped off. It's black under the phosphate.

I do like the tray idea. I might have to try my hand at building some of those next
