Anyone planning to attend the gun show at the San Diego County Fairgrounds in Del Mar, CA on December 12 and 13?

Hi Jim,

I would appreciate any info you can provide on the grips you mentioned. We have a gun show coming up locally on the 12th and 13th that I will attend (mostly to browse). I thought I would start a hunt for grips and a holster there.

Hi Warbird,

Thanks for your reply to my question. Replacing random parts (function and placement unknown to me) didn't sound like a fun afternoon.

My HSc is ser #736 394 placing it manufactured in 1941 (from your chart). I assume that the slide was replaced at sometime as the three digit number on the underside is 576. The pistol shows the eagle 655 on the left side trigger guard and the eagle N on the right. The mag has the Mauser logo stamped into the base.

I've not had my HSc long and have yet to fire it. Even though the three digit etched number on my slide is not a match to the serial number, I am prepared to treat the wood grips as though they are original (mostly due to their appearance). Not chipped and I'd like to keep them that way.

I've read on this forum that replacing the grips (for the purpose of preserving the wood grips) can be tricky...working parts easily becoming dislodged from within the handle frame. Is there a recommended procedure to avoid this issue?

Many thanks,
