Model 1910 Pistol / Jamming Issues
« on: March 14, 2023, 09:21:00 PM »
I managed to spend some time at the range on the weekend and went through a 50 cnt box of ammo.

I experienced several jams, and they appeared to fall into two categories.

  • Not feeding correctly when inserting the magazine due to cartridge misalignment
  • Not feeding correctly when inserting the magazine due to binding

I believe the cartridge misalignment issue may be related to the upper lip of the magazine, and I believe the other feeding issue was caused by the slide binding.

I believe loading 8 rounds instead of 9 might help with the misalignment issue, and the binding issue seemed to only happen after I got more than half way through the box. I think there might have just been a bit more carbon buildup causing more friction in the action than there should be.

I've given the slide a good clean, and although it was smooth before, it seems to move a little more freely than it did before. Perhaps that's all it takes.

Are there any tips on exactly tuning the lips on the magazine? Maybe some critical dimensions? I'm not sure how much of a possibility obtaining a replacement would be, especially given the recent moves by the Canadian government.

Model 1910 Pistol / Question on loading

There are two ways I can think of loading.

  • Pull slide back so that it locks. Insert magazine.
  • Insert magazine. Pull slide back, and release.
Which technique do you prefer?

Hi all.

I just joined this group as I have inherited a Mauser 1910 from my father when he passed away. I know little about it other than he inherited it from his father when my grandfather passed away when I was around 1 year old.

I know my father had never used it in my lifetime; I suspect it probably had last been used in the 1950's or later.

I cleaned it up and have used it a few times at the range. As far as I know everything seems to be in working order, with the exception that occasionally it won't feed a round correctly.

The serial number is 291240. As far as I can tell that indicates it was manufactured in the 1920's, which would make it 100 years old.
