1910/14 .25 ACP magazine questions
« on: July 08, 2020, 04:46:49 PM »
I just bought a like new 1910/14 made from serial number and year quantities in 1923.It was sold to me with the original magazine missing.A Triple-k mag was included and of course it is too short and does not work at all. It will not trip the slide release/magazine safety.Looking for an original I see the shysters are asking 200 bucks or more for an original magazine.Are there any alternatives that are more back-to-earth on pricing that work?Thank you for any info.

If you arenít able to resolve the issue, I have written a document that talks about how the hold open catch operates as well as its interaction with the magazine.  It may help to diagnose where the issue is. Let me know and I can send to you.  Original magazines can be found on eBay from time to time for way less than the $200.  You need the version with the solid square floor plate.  I was able to purchase 2 recently.

Will the original " split-tailed" magazine fit my pistol?

Yes.  The Split tailed base is an older style but should still work if there are no other issues with it.  Old magazines can have there little ďissuesĒ.  If the comment from 1914Mauser was regarding David from Handguns of World, I have bought other magazines from him before and they were of great quality and good working order.

From the pictures you sent and details about the magazine plate, I donít believe the issue is with the magazine.  You also mentioned you can push up on the magazine and the slide closed.  I believe the culprit is the magazine catch.  Your photo showed you had a stamped magazine catch.  It appears that the area which holds the magazine in place has been bent or distorted so it will not hold the magazine tight in place.  I donít have a spare stamped magazine catch for a 1910.  Maybe someone hear can help you find one or has one in spare parts.

I'll disassemble the pistol tomorrow night and photograph the slide latch and compare it to yours so you can see if it is bent.

I bought an original magazine for my pistol and hope it will fit.

The split base magazine showed up and works as it should.

I test fired the pistol into my bullet trap and it worked as it should. The recovered bullets are well engraved with the rifling and sealed the bore well.The pistol is accurate and will be shot in my clubs match this Saturday at a moving target.The fired bullets "mike" out to .247 average.
