Will pick them up in a few weeks. They come from an older collection and will need some tlc, but the basis is not bad at all.

Still do! Appreciate your help in finding and obtaining it!

Pretty impressive. Thanks for sharing.

The Mauser 1910-14-34 pistols have been reported to be extremely accurate pistols, nice to see a well documented confirmation.

An example of the 150 to 200 contract P.08 pistols made by Mauser for their Italian reseller Renato Gamba in 1974.

The initial order was for 1,000 pistols in .30 luger with a 4" P08 barrel. Financial problems interfered and only a small part of the contract was fulfilled. Other pistols were dismantled for parts, while another group was reworked to Interarms specs and sold in the US.

Serial number range was RG0001 to RG1001.

That doesn't say anything.

Mauser made them in 6,35 and 7,65.

Then something is wrong.

Make sure you are not having a .25 caliber pistol or magazine.

The Model 1914 must accept regular .32 auto without any problems, if it doesn't, something is wrong.

Correct. Its 5-1936.

Serial number is a tad low for the 1934 grips, the manual is dated May, 1936 (updated after typo).

From the 1937 Mauser company history book.

The lady is doing final assembly of a batch of M1934 pistols.

Model HSC Pistol / Re: Early French phosphate HSc

The Ulm proof house was established in 1952. It replaced the Oberndorf proof house which ground to a halt in april, 1945.

During French control proofing was done in-house at Mauser. There was a period of uncertainty in april, 1945 during the evacuation of part of the Mauser staff, tools, machines and parts en route to Austria.

It is not unlikely that those who remained behind redistributed guns to locals for self protection.

It would also have taken some time for the French to come up with a game plan. But the number of unproofed HSc's is still going to be limited, despite the uncertainties Oberndorf and Mauser had to deal with.

It is still strange why HSc's under French control were WR proofed and P38's were Star proofed. Have to check what they did on WTP pistols.

Yup, fixed.

Got a message from one of our lugerforum members:

I cannot get that to work to let me post there. EDITED, = always error code. I cannot even send warbird a message to sort since it requires same steps to send message. Is he on this forum? Maybe I can message him here.
