General Discussion / Re: New book on Paul Mauser
« on: December 06, 2020, 08:38:26 AM »
Hi Brian,

Yes, the luxury versions are sold out. But the standard version is also of a nice, hardbound, quality with dust jacket in gold print.

Distribution in the US is handled by Simpson Ltd.
I haven't seen any of your mails come in at

If you want to order in Europe, send me a private message with your contact info and I will quote with shipping.

The book is heavy, 2.5kg in total, so shipping within the EU is usually not that cheap.

For EU customers we have an end of season offer of 75,00 at the moment. Shipping is quoted at request, as the costs vary from location to location.

The 1914 actually had a serial numbered magazine, to another pistol, in it.

Yes, we lost a lot of images.

I have also started re-uploading images in some older posts.

These walked in a while ago.

Redone by Mauser in 1963, scale 2:1.

Model HSC Pistol / Re: French Era HSc With Mismatch Barrel Question

Barrels were matched to the gun. So if the barrel is not matching, it is a later swap. Not uncommon, but not factory work.

Should be a 1970 pistol. But some spent a lot of time in storage, so the proof or shipping dates are not a good indication.  :-X

I have one in the same serial range with a 1977 proof year.

Congrats on obtaining a super rare variation.

Could be one of the 1980s Chinese rebuilds.
Does it have a removeable magazine?

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.

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.

That doesn't say anything.

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