Model 1934 Pistol / 1934 Mauser pistol safety catch release
« on: August 18, 2017, 12:54:11 AM »

I have a 1934 model Mauser pistol in .32 that was produced in 1940.  The safety catch release (the part that has the button) is broken.  I was wondering if any of you knew a good source for this part (Numrich is out of stock) or if anyone has one that they are willing to sell.

I bought a new M48 a few years ago that had gone straight from the factory to cosmoline.  It was a mess.  I used blue shop towels to wipe most of it away and then applied diesel fuel on a rag to get most of the rest.  You can use a heat gun, but be careful to keep it pretty far away so you don't mess up the bluing.  The stock was my biggest challenge.  I used simple green, but the best thing was to spread a thick layer of newspapers on our outdoor table and then let the stock soak up the sun, which melted the cosmoline as it got hot.

Good luck!
