Model HSC Pistol / Slide Lock problem
« on: November 15, 2018, 10:35:01 AM »
Hi everybody! I am a lucky owner of a Mauser HSC that I was able to identify as a 1943 army pistol (Serial 819XXX).
First of all I would like to thanks everybody in this forum because of the passion and the effort that you all put to help others and do research.
Now my question. My Mauser HSC has an unusual behaviour: when I have no more cartridges in the magazine the slide stays open (as expected).As I extract the magazine, the slide close instantly. If I try to reopen it sometimes stays open and sometimes not.Does anyone have experience with the same problem?I dismounted the gun and tried to trace back the issue.Is it normal that when the magazine is inserted and there are no cartridges the slide lock by hitting the back of the magazine?I guess the problem is related to the ejector (Magazine Safety): if I gently touch it without pushing to any side the slide close (magazine removed).I am not able to understand if the problem is caused by a worn ejector, a damaged slide and  how to proceed to fix the gun.
Thanks to everybody that will try to help me.Francesco.
