Model 1910 Pistol / Re: What model 1910 do I have?
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:34:32 PM »
Thank you all for your input on this pistol. I took it over to a friends today and compared my grip to two of his late model 7.65mm plastic grip models that he knows are not reproductions. Has the exact same shine and look. Mine has a very small chip on the left side up by the safety and another about midway down on the front strap left side. It seems to have honest age and wear so in my opinion I'm thinking it is an original grip. I will be taking you advice 1914mauser and will find a correct fitting original wood grip. Think I'll keep the plastic one. One can never have too many spare Mauser parts.

Thanks for the information 1914mauser. I thought the serial# was too early for that grip. I paid the average 1910 price for pistol in this condition. My original intent was to find a nice wooden grip as mentioned in my Mauser Pocket Pistol book and sell the plastic grip. If it is not a reproduction it should have some value. You mention it having a straight plastic grip at one time. Would that be correct? I want to have the pistol in its correct configuration. I don't have time tonight to get a picture of the grip but I will try to post one maybe tomorrow to get your opinion as to whether it is original or not if you don't mind. If you know anyone with a nice correct grip I sure would be interested. And you are not the bearer of bad news. You are helping get this pistol back to the way it should be. Thanks

I recently picked up a 1910 6.35mm, serial number 399,601. It has a curved black plastic grip. The serial numbers all match but are hidden on the back of the sideplate (not showing above the trigger), and on the left side of the frame under the grip (not on the rear of the frame). The magazine is blued and has 9 holes on the left side with a round front floor plate and Mauser stamped. In a post on page 2 of 1910 Mauser posts, Dec. 30,2013, vlim talks about his 1910/34 and the reuniting of the magazine. Our guns are only 161 apart and look identical. When I research my gun in my Roy Pender book, my serial number falls in the range of a late post war commercial model. According to the book it should have a straight checkered wood grip. Has someone replaced the grip on mine with a  plastic one to make it look like a 1910/34? Pender states that curved grips started around serial#403361 on 6.35mm. Seeing vlim's post has me confused. Two of the same configurations so close together but not in the correct serial# range to be 1910/34. What's up? Is mine a 1910 or 1910/34? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I have wondered for some time how to determine this. Have read all I could find online but never really got what I was looking for. Your information has been very helpful. Really appreciate it.

How do you know if a P38 has been Russian dipped? I have read that some were stamped with an X and some were not. Also was wondering about the cut grips. Is there a noticeable cut line? Any information would be appreciated.

Model HSC Pistol / Re: HSc barrel question

Like I stated in my 1st post this is an early wartime HSc, eagle/135. It is in the serial number range of 765K. Maybe at some point someone changed the original barrel with a new surplus one that was not serialized. The barrel is in mint condition showing almost no ramp wear. But the pistol is also in very nice condition, being a high polish with just normal holster wear. Thanks for your interest.

 I guess no number is better than a wrong number. Thanks for your input. I really appreciate it.

Model HSC Pistol / HSc barrel question
« on: October 29, 2016, 03:47:02 PM »
I just found and purchased a very nice HSc early war Eagle/135. Before the purchase I checked the serial #'s and found that the slide and frame match, but the barrel has no number, it is also missing the Eagle/N proof mark on the side of the chamber. But it does have the WR inspection mark. The seller said he has had the gun for years and that the gun has had this barrel since he has owned it.  I know I will never be able to find a matching numbered barrel for it, but the gun was too nice to pass up and the price was right. The gun chambers and functions flawlessly. Does anyone know where this barrel may have come from? Factory error? Original inventory replacement part? Any help would be appreciated.
