Model 1934 Pistol / Not sure what I have
« on: October 04, 2016, 10:02:21 PM »
So, I was getting into my car in the parking lot after work today and a middle aged guy gets out of his truck and approaches me. He asked if i was the Jim HXXXXX that used to be the armorer for 36XXth maintenance company (I happen to work on that post again). That was over 30 years ago but I assented that I was. He handed me a cardboard box and said "here, dad died and wanted you to have this". He refused to answer any questions and all I got was the make, model and plate number of his truck. I opened the box and found what looked like a Mauser 1914 (serial number 605XXX) I now know I have a 1934. The poor thing is missing a magazine, both grip screws and has been spray painted silver. It also has franzite imitation ivory grips. So I took it apart and cleaned it and it is in pretty good shape. Have ordered a mag and grips, will make the screws myself. looks like acetone will clean the paint off but I may cerakote it. Any comments?
