Thinking about selling my 1914 32 ACP
« on: October 01, 2015, 08:14:35 PM »
Hello all,
First post here as I usually frequent a California board with more modern firearms.  I have a Mauser 32 ACP with serial number 318125.  It appears to have been Mfg in approx 1925.  It just came back from the gunsmith where it checked out in very good condition, test fired well
3 matching serial numbers on the outside, haven't looked inside but believe it's all good.   Holster in very good condition and 1 mag.
Wondering what the value might be as I have seen them go for very low to very high and I know condition means everything.
Thanks in advance

You have a 1914 post WWI standard commercial Mauser pocket model. The WWI era and the post WWI standard are the to most commonly encountered pistols. Most of the post war standards are in very good condition, like yours but because it is not military or police marked there is little demand for them by collectors. Most will sell at around $350 as a shooter. Your holster adds about $50, if un-marked but could be hundreds more if maker marked. You would be best served to sell them separately. Also what I have suggested is high retail. If you sell to a re-seller (dealer or pawn shop) do not expect to be offered more than half of my estimate. Your best bet is a direct sale to a collector or individual.
