It is correct for there to be no maker's stamps or marks?

Yes, the holsters made for the M1934 were ok for the HSc as well and when the M1934 was replaced by the HSc, the HSc was the only 'Mauser 7,65' pistol available.

The Heereswaffenamt made no difference between the M1934 and HSc in her purchase lists, all were just registered as 7,65 pistols.

New to this realm and just got my first WWII German Mauser HSc made in 1945.  It came with a holster that looks like the correct style and aged, but it has no markings other than an ink stamp inside the flap "Mauser 7.65"

Is this correct?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Judging from the pitting, it was cleaned and blued over.
Since the slide number is only lightly electropenciled at the front below the muzzle opening, it is easy to remove it while cleaning and rebluing.

Hi Forum,

I purchased this WWII HSC slide off gunbroker. There wasnít a lot of information on it. I was hoping to see a SN on the nose of it, but it didnít have one. Is it possible it was never assembled on a gun to receive a SN or did someone remove it? The only other marking I see is on the inside of the slide on the rear end.

Been so long, since your post, I forgot it again, and was fortunate to find your original post. Needed some range time, and the HSC is certainty an accurate pistol.
I have 3 HSCs, 2 from Interarm, and a WWII police pistol, when the quality was great ( early 704,Xxx. All beauties.

Hi, nice gun.

The Prussian Eagle was a late war order to mark and identify non-P08 guns as government property.

The small acceptance mark in front of the rear sight indeed identifies it a military property.

Perhaps your magazine is at fault. Try putting some pressure on the magazine bottom and see if the firing pin moves.

I had quite a few pistols with similar issues, cured by either swapping or replacing mags.

I have what appears to me to be a war time 1914 pistol in .32acp.  I don't know much about Mauser Pistols but I am growing to really like them.  I just purchased a WTP 1 to go with my WTP 2.  My 1914 has Crown over a U on top of the slide as well as another mark that I'm not sure of.  It has has a Prussian Eagle on the trigger guard.  Serial Number is 175431.  It  appears to be in very good shape and the numbers match with the exception of the disonnector.  My problem is that it doesn't strike the primer when I cock it and pull the trigger.  I put new springs in it and it's still not working properly.  I've cleaned it inside and out and oiled it so I'm not sure where to look next.

Thanks for reading and any help you can provide!

Your serial number is way too high for a Low Grip Screw variation.

The Eagle/N is the standard commercial proof of those days.

Production year 1942.
