Sure and welcome to the forum,

By the serial number, your 1914 Mauser pocket model was made in 1924. I refer to it as a 1914 standard post war (WWI) the 1934 models have a "MAUSER WERKE..." slide address where yours has the "WAFFENFABRIK MAUSER..." address. Your model is quite often found in very good condition as post war Mausers were very well made and left the factory with quality finishes.

Pleas tell us what else you might want to know and post pictures if you can so we can see condition.

Thanks! I appreciate your knowledge. Do you think this specific gun was used by German police or was it more likely owned by civilians. While it came with a holster, i would be interested in a period-correct and role-correct holster. Thanks again.  Also, trying to upload pics. Alan

Alan,

There is no way of knowing who purchased or used this pistol but most likely it was sold on the civilian market and most likely did not see much use. If well used or carried the condition would show it. Value on the current market around $350

You may have a period correct holster. Post some pictures and we will be able to tell what you have.

How safe is it to carry my 1914 with one in the pipe, striker cocked, and safety on in a pocket holster that covers the trigger and safety? Is it better to carry with just the rounds in the mag and nothing up top?


Thanks. Alan

Your question calls for knowledge and opinion. If  it were me I would carry without one in the barrel. This will prevent wear to the springs and be the safest way to carry IMHO. If you keep it with a round in the chamber and on safe, the striker spring will be compressed as well as the safety springs. These pistols are over 80 years old and the springs may have some fatigue all ready. There are many newer, affordable pistols with safeties better suited to carry with one in the chamber.
