We got a few spam accounts. I banned and cleaned up the spam posts.

Looks like your spring itself is riding a little low, it may have been installed incorrectly. It needs to go higher up in the frame.

These are quite collectable.

If you want to butcher a HSc, I would recommend finding something else.

Note that the wartime HSc has a disconnector that differs from the postwar version.

The wartime left grip requires a slot that clears the disconnector.

Yours is a late WW2 version. April, 1945.

01.27627 would be late 1971, early 1972.
Over 50 years old today and collectable indeed.

756642 appears to have a military acceptance at the left side. The commercial proofs on the right side are Eagle/N ones. Military accepted HSc's are desirable and collectable.

A wartime HSc that has been given a new number somewhere down the line. Hard to tell who applied it and why.

With the left grip removed, just press the triggerbar back in place, make sure it is seated well.

Keep some pressure on it, from the side, while installing the grip panel again.

It is quite normal for that bar to come loose, as it is held under pressure both front and rear.

Normal field strip after shooting only requires removal of the slide from the frame.

Proper method:
Check the pistol is empty.
Close the slide.
Cock the hammer.
Put safety on safe.
Press the release button and take off the slide.
Remove barrel and spring from the slide.

No further disassembly is required.

1976, most probably.

It should be a .380. Made in 1972.

Model HSC Pistol / Re: Mauser HSc 7.65. mfg in 1970

Yes, that's normal.

Interarms imported a lot less .32's, so good catch.

Made in 1972. The first 2 digits 01 show it is a .380.

Value depends on the state of the gun and the presence of the original box, test target, magazines, manual, etc..

A search on sites like Gunbroker should produce an average sales value.

Production year would be 1970.
Interarms offered the nickle plated version on the US market. These guns were FBM proofed (internal Mauser proof) and not commercially proofed for the German market, so they unfortunately have no proof dates.

Yours is a commercial example.
