Mauser Revolvers / Mauser .22lr revolvers by Heym
« on: September 14, 2017, 11:01:45 AM »
In the 1960s, rifle maker Heym produced a .22lr revolver based on the Colt Detective series.

Mauser, who had a financial interest in Heym in those days, decided to do a feasibility study on a Mauser branded  .22lr revolver. Heym produced a few samples but this never went further.

The revolver shown is a 1969 target version.

Model HSC Pistol / Just in, HSc holster

Found this nice 'Mauser 7,65' marked HSc holster in Germany recently.

Nice comrade for my minty HSc.

Holster is marked jhg 44. The code for Gustav Genschow's leather works (Geco).

Model HSC Pistol / An out of sequence American Eagle HSc
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:54:54 AM »
As a final run, Interarms ordered and marketed a batch of 5000 HSc pistols, marked with an American Eagle on the right side of the slide. The AE was borrowed from the Interarms Mauser Parabellum, which had it etched on the chamber.

This particular pistol was not marketed by Interarms, it remained in Germany, had a normal HSc commercial serial number and was proofed in Ulm in 1976.

Model HSC Pistol / .22lr HSc
« on: May 01, 2017, 10:28:42 AM »
To my surprise, the April 2017 Hermann Historica auction had an interesting pistol for sale: A post war Mauser HSc in .22lr.

This makes it the second complete HSc in .22lr that has been reported.
The other one carries number V001, a serial number of the Mauser R&D department.

The pistol on H-H has the slide markings removed, ostensibly to reduce weight, and has number 02.0001. I was able to purchase it and am now awaiting paperwork to get it over here. When it arrives, more details should hopefully follow.

Model HSC Pistol / Post war HSc

This arrived last week.
1970 Mauser HSc with box and paperwork.

The grips were almost glued on with old gun grease. Looks like it wasn't used for a long time.

Model 1914 Pistol / How to forge a frame
« on: February 28, 2017, 06:01:47 PM »
Here is a rare surviving die for creating the frame forgings of the 1914 / 34 frames. These dies had a limited life span and were recycled after use. This one survived because a Mauser worker decided to use it as a makeshift anvil at his home.

Some photos of a period Mauser C96 brochure. Pricing info on the variations, and mentioning that they already sold 80,000 of them.

General Discussion / New book on Paul Mauser
« on: September 14, 2016, 04:12:11 PM »
Dear Fellow Collectors,
After more than 6 years of study of the Paul Mauser Private Archive and early Mauser Archive, we are happy to announce that the new reference book on Paul Mauser will be soon available.

The book is published by Brad Simpson Publishing and is printing now.

Attached you can find a brochure that introduces the new book; we are sure the book will provide new and unpublished information directly from the original sources.

Note also that the documentary “The Legacy of Paul Mauser” was filmed during the book’s research and will also be available.

Please have a look at the brochure and do not hesitate to ask any question.

Just noticed this sign on the wall of one of the in game gun stores :)

WTP / Small presentation of a WTP1 with holster
« on: July 13, 2016, 07:42:23 AM »
Last month I found a nice little WTP1 holster to accompany the pistol I have had for a couple of years.

A nice match and an interesting military style WTP holster with a separate pouch which contained the cleaning rod.


Non Gun Items / French wannabe cowboy with Mauser pistol

I recently acquired this old postcard of a French stage cowboy with his Mauser pocket pistol.

Model HSC Pistol / Near-mint 'sock drawer' HSc
« on: May 21, 2016, 03:34:46 PM »
This week I received a HSc I purchased at an auction. It was a bit of a gamble, as the photos showed a pistol that was looking so good (including the grips) that most mistook it for a refinish/refurb job.

But after receiving the pistol, all turned out to be correct and in excellent condition. The pistol was partially covered with traces of old, dried out, gun grease and it was virtually bone dry.

The photo and scans I made really don't do the pistol justice, but you get an idea of the condition. I guess someone got this pistol issued during the war and decided he didn't have any use for it, planted it in his sock drawer and forgot all about it  :)

Non Gun Items / Promotional item - small pocket knife
« on: May 10, 2016, 10:05:50 AM »
Here is a neat little pocket knife I picked up recently.

The knife was made by the company of Paul A. Henckels in Solingen, as a promotional item for Mauser. They did a lot of these promotional items for German companies. The knife has a neat little leather holster.

Model HSC Pistol / Norwegian HSc -
« on: March 08, 2016, 02:05:37 PM »
Thanks to one of our forum members, I was able to close a gap in the HSc collection I am putting together.

I contacted a number of Norwegian collectors in the past, explaining that I was looking for a Norwegian Police marked example. Most told me I was crazy, that this was not a collectible and others didn't reply at all. Asle did, and he helped me to find a very nice example, including Norwegian police holster.

After a long, long paper trail and some transportation issues, the pistol made it safely here and I was able to look it over. Nice Waffenamt marked military HSc that spent the remainder of its service life with the police in Norway.

Non Gun Items / Some examples of Mauser merchandise
« on: December 20, 2015, 10:26:08 AM »
I recently got a small batch of Mauser promotional items, some badges, pins and stickers.

The pins with the coat of arms logo are quite recent, the others most likely of 1970s - 1980s vintage.
