assembling a 1934 Mauser 7.65
« on: May 29, 2015, 01:31:07 PM »
I have been able to successfully dissemble and clean a 34' Mauser (serial # 583526 made in 1940?).  I have not been able to reassemble it.  I am assuming there is a special sequence of events.  Can anyone send me a guide for putting this thing back together?

Watch the clip in the link at Youtube and works opposite to reassemble. My opinion you has to start with Ejector & hold-open catch, but be careful when you put back the magazine spring, the spring needs to be at the left side of the Ejector & hold-open catch. Look here,,469.0.html, there is picture.

If you're in doubt, wait for an answer from Burgess Mason, I always giving this advice.

Nothing I can add. Interesting youtube video, not as bad as most but then he doesn't try talking about history or variations. One thing I can point out is that his choice of tools is not ideal. I suggest using wood or plastic tools for disassembly. A tooth brush handle cut off at the brush, a chop stick and/or a popsicle stick are other options. A screw driver with the shaft covered with a piece of tubing is another idea. Use a screw driver for screws. Any prying or pushing with a wood or plastic tool. That way if you slip you will avoid a nasty scratch.
