I picked up my first Hauser HSc at the Wannamacher show this past April in Tulsa. First time attending the show too.

Mine is a 1941 production matching police marked example. (E/L). Minor finish wear and freckling right along the lower edges of the slide, nothing I can't live with. Grips are perfect with minor wear, no cracks or chips. I got it from a private seller so it was a cash & carry deal, no papers.

Welcome to the forum, Gunhorde!  There is no such thing as "dipping your toe in the water" with the HSc.  It becomes a passion instead of a hobby.  I still remember my first HSc purchase more than 40 years ago (it took me that long to write the book!).

If you care to share the complete serial number and/or photos, I could see if there is any history in our extensive HSc database including a production date.  In any event, good to hear from you!

Hello Fausto!  Your Late Wartime Army HSc was produced in November 1944.  Anything else let me know.

My father gifted me an HSc this evening. I honestly thought it was a post war and he gave it to me mostly because I enjoyed firing it when we took it out to shoot. I've been trying to get more info on it though, and was wondering what you could tell me.


The serial is 721436, it's marked 655 under the eagle on the left of the trigger guard, and has an N on the right under the eagle, as well as on the end of the right barrel.

Congratulations on your gift and welcome to the Forum!  Your Early Wartime German Army or Heerwas made in June 1941, just six months after production began.  As you can see on the Production Chart, the Army was the largest buyer of the HSc during WWII.

Hopefully, all three serial numbers match on your pistol.  Look for them on the Barrel Breech, nose of the Slide, and, of course, on the Frame bottom of the Grip.  These Early Wartime pistols are prized by collectors because of their fine finish and precise construction.  As the war progressed quality was sacrificed for output to a certain extent.

If there is anything else, let me know.

Welcome to the Forum, HunterWulf.  Commercial variations were not numbered by Jan Still and to get a valuation you will need to provide a serial number.  Also, identify the Magazine by describing it's base and what type Holster do you have and  is it marked.  See this post, Reply #1, for types of Holsters:

My bad; I misunderstood the chart. It is in the 870,000 S/N range. I assume commercial as I could not find any of the military or LE acceptance stamps anywhere other than the basic three E/Ns. I believe it is the "military" style finish as it appears to have been blued as ground/machined. The bluing is in excellent condition with only minor spots of "in the white" metal on a couple hard corners from holster use. Magazine floorplate is pretty plain, flat, unpolished blue, with no markings. It is retained with a little cut out on one side which a tab on the magazine spring catches in, and the rear area of the floorplate has a relieved spot, like for a flathead screwdriver or similar tool to help remove the plate. Holster is  Army style, with a Genschow A.G. Berlin, 1941 stamp on the underflap. Anything else I need to look for?

The Magazine is the correct vintage for this HSc.  You will want to be sure all three serial numbers match.  I cannot give you a value without the full serial number.
