I have no affiliation with this auction. This is just so no one misses out on the opportunity to own this rare variation.

$450-650 is a conservative auction estimate.

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: Nickel model 1914
« on: October 10, 2020, 11:03:57 AM »
Yes, you are correct it is a second model variation. I refer to these as 1914 early production. It is believed these were made in 1913. These followed the Humpback variation which were preproduction or prototypes. Approximately 10,000 of this second model variation were made. I have yet to see one that was factory nickel plated. There are examples of the Sidelatch .25 caliber model that were factory nickel plated and were produced before or around the same time as yours. These second model variations are pre WWI produced thus made for commercial consumption. Because of these 2 facts, a factory nickel finish cannot be ruled out. To verify it being an actual factory original finish would require an in hand inspection by someone with knowledge of period nickel finishes. It would be very exciting to have it verified as factory original. If it is you are to be congratulations on acquiring a rare example.

If you can explain what you mean by "second variant" or better yet provide the serial number I should be able to tell you something about it. The nickel finish is most likely not original. Knowing exactly what you have will help determine if it could possibly be a factory finish. Pictures would be helpful as well.

1910 is typically used to refer to .25 caliber Mauser pocket models and is also sometimes used when referring to all pistols of this design. There are at least a dozen designations to describe the variations. For example (1910, 1910/14, 1910/34, 1914, 1934, 1914 early production, 1910/14 new model, etc..........)

I agree. Even a well placed .22 can be terminal.

Hello Tyler, Your pistol is a .32 caliber Mauser pocket model, a.k.a. a 1914 model. Yours was made in 1917 and was most likely used in WWI by the German Imperial army. You can confirm this by looking for a small stamped mark in front of the rear sight. There should also be a Crown/U proof mark behind the rear sight.

vietvet191, Your LRH C96, with serial number in the 31,000 range falls in the range of C96s that had a good deal of variation, if its a Mauser made C96. 9 x 19 mm chambering is not one of them. Your description of "serious rust under the grips" does indicate it is one of the thousands that were imported from China. Though the majority of these were M1930 models there were also many early and rare model variations that came in during the importation. Many of these examples had seriously rusted grip loops and very poor bores and were re-lined to 9mm. There is also the possibility that it is a Chinese made copy of the C96. A picture will tell the tale if you can post some it will help us tell you what you have.

It is sad to see such little activity going on here. Things do seem to be slower in general these days. I hope as things start to get back to normal this site sees the activity it deserves.

High retail value is in the $500-600 range. Dealers will not pay this much as they have to have a profit margin. You would be doing well to get $400 in a quick sale.

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Re: unique c96... value... thoughts?

Hunter, I cannot speak to values in Canada. In the US the pistol would sell for around $3000 high retail value. The leather covered stock is a rare variation and is not a correct stock for a RED-9 C96. I would value the stock around $900. It would be more if in better condition.

General Mauser Pistol Questions / Re: Mauser manuals
« on: July 17, 2020, 07:22:35 AM »
I have self published a booklet on the manuals for the .25 & .32 caliber pocket and vest pocket pistols including the HSC. The booklet comes in a vinyl binder and is in color, printed 2 sided on photo quality paper. As I recall it is 24 pages. I had it offered over on Jan Still's forum and have sold several copies. I'm charging $25 for the publishing cost and shipping. A little more to ship to Europe.
Anyone interested can e-mail me at fxdx21@hotmail.com

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: What a shame. 1914 Police Marked
« on: July 15, 2020, 07:26:42 AM »
We have to remember that these where not as collected in the past. Often war surplus was acquired for personal or home defense and owners marked them so if they were stolen they would more likely be recovered. Not everyone is interested in the history of their firearm. It is acquired to meet a need.
