Hi all.

I just joined this group as I have inherited a Mauser 1910 from my father when he passed away. I know little about it other than he inherited it from his father when my grandfather passed away when I was around 1 year old.

I know my father had never used it in my lifetime; I suspect it probably had last been used in the 1950's or later.

I cleaned it up and have used it a few times at the range. As far as I know everything seems to be in working order, with the exception that occasionally it won't feed a round correctly.

The serial number is 291240. As far as I can tell that indicates it was manufactured in the 1920's, which would make it 100 years old.

Welcome!  Nice pistol. 
Yeah, sometimes the modern ammo doesn't feed properly.  Or the load spring in the mag may be weak due to being stored with ammo in it? 
I think there are a few topics here from the past where folks discussed ammo feeding issues.
Never Enough Mausers!

Welcome to the forum. Your 1910/14 Mauser was made in 1925. It is one of the most common variations of the .25 caliber pocket model. Feeding problems are usually due to the ammo, magazine or springs. Regards,
