Model 1934 Pistol / Got some old war horses

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.

Mauser Lugers / Renato Gamba Mauser P.08
« on: June 17, 2020, 07:09:54 PM »
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.

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

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.

Mauser HSc cutaway made to order by Prof. Dr. Gminder for his private collection.

Made from new, unproofed and unnumbered HSc parts by the Mauser school.

Model HSC Pistol / Alex Seidel

The grave of the father of the HSc and co-founder of Heckler & Koch, Alex Seidel.

Other designs from his hand are the HK4 and P7 pistols.

Although he did not get along with co-founder Theodor Koch, they are buried next to each other at the upper cemetery in Oberndorf am Neckar.

Will go nicely with a military marked Mauser 1914 I have.

Model 80SA / 90DA Pistol / Serial ranges, current status
« on: March 28, 2019, 09:03:30 AM »
I have been observing and regestering DA serial numbers for a few years now. The number of samples is now large enough to draw some early conclusions.

The observed numbers run from 90002000 to 90015000 and from 90020000 to 90026000.

It seems that 90015000 to 90019999 are missing. None observed in this range yet.

This suggests that no more than
19000 were made.

It would be interesting to see serial numbers:
Below 90002000.
Between 90015000 and 9002000.
Above 90026000.

The Compact DA is rare, it does not exceed 2000 at this time. Those observed fall between 91001000 and 91002200.
