Mauser WWII Slide SN
« on: March 26, 2024, 07:16:27 PM »
Hi Forum,


I purchased this WWII HSC slide off gunbroker. There wasnít a lot of information on it. I was hoping to see a SN on the nose of it, but it didnít have one. Is it possible it was never assembled on a gun to receive a SN or did someone remove it? The only other marking I see is on the inside of the slide on the rear end.

Judging from the pitting, it was cleaned and blued over.
Since the slide number is only lightly electropenciled at the front below the muzzle opening, it is easy to remove it while cleaning and rebluing.
