1934 Disassemble Issues
« on: January 03, 2024, 09:01:51 AM »
Folks :
 
I'm working on a Mauser Model 1934 pistol for a friend, and I've got a couple issues.


I can get the takedown rod out just fine, but the slide will not go far enough back to allow barrel removal.


I've removed the magazine catch and grip, but that's as far as I can comfortably go right now.


Also, it appears that the firing pin "loaded chamber indicator" end is broken : when I manually manipulate the firing pin there is no protrusion at the rear of the frame.


Any ideas on "why" the slide won't go fully rearward and allow the barrel to be removed?
Is there a way to disassemble the pistol further without causing damage to it?


Any guidance and direction would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you in advance,
Steve Mc

It is very difficult to trouble shoot these kinds of problems via forum. If the slide is not moving rearward enough to remove the barrel something internal must be blocking it. It sounds like your best move would be to find a qualified gunsmith to take a look at it. Regards,

Is there a place here on the forum where I can find a gunsmith knowledgeable on the Mauser 1934 pistol?  Or can you recommend one?

Thank you.

That would depend on where your are unless you are willing to ship your pistol to someone. I do not know a smith I could recommend. I would be willing to take a look at it for you without any guaranties. I am in north central Florida. Regards,

I'm located in North East Ohio, but I'd be willing to ship.


Thanks for the reply.
