What type of magazin for my HSc?
« on: June 04, 2013, 12:23:31 PM »
I understand - no serial from Mauser factory on magasin between 1940 - 1945.
The policemarked HSc where marked by the police dep..


But, there is a difference - on the bottom plate...


When did they change?
I got 1941 made - what is the correct type of mag on this?
I altso got a 1943 and a 1944 kriegsmarine, what type on these?


thanks!

Hello Asle.  There were three major magazine types used throughout production:  the earliest ones (1940 to 1942) had a machined follower and flat bottom or floorplate stamped with the Mauser banner (trademark) on it; the banner was subsequently discontinued leaving just a plain, flat floorplate; and the final type (1943 to 1945) had a machined or stamped follower and blank sheet metal floorplate that was indented near the front.  The floorplate was also notched at the rear so that pressure from the magazine latch was applied to the magazine housing and not the floorplate.
