Model 1914 Pistol / Re: Mauser Pocket Pistols 1910 to 1946 by Roy Pender

Another seller on ebay had it for $175 plus 10 shipping and I bit. There was also a seller in Italy who had it for less, but the listing was all in Italian; what could go wrong there?

I wasn't familiar with this book, but it was recommended on a nearby thread. Knew it was out of print, so I went to Amazon; $218 to $345. Ebay: one seller had it with a bid of $5.50 so I laid in wait until the end of the auction. Three minutes to go and I bid $35; the auction closed at $102. I'm going to keep looking for someone who doesn't know what they have. Pender's book needs to be re-printed.

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: 1914 Mauser no serial numbers

SIG, Has your pistol been refinished? My 1914 has the serial number stamped on the rear of the frame and the left side of the slide. A lot of metal would need to have been removed for there to be no trace of a serial number. You need to be worried about the legality of owning this pistol. Can you post pictures?

A competent gunsmith should be able to re-point the firing pin.

Romolo, If your pistol has been stored in its holster I am astonished by its condition.  Leather holsters are notoriously cruel to carbon steel.  One of my 1914 Mausers was stored in its military flap holster and is deeply pitted.  A word to the wise.

Argentine 1891 Rifle / Re: Argentine mauser model 1891

Can't help you with the serial number.  In the early 1960's Interarms imported a large quantity of these rifles arsenal refinished to new condition, with the exception that the Argrentine crest had been ground off the receiver ring.  They had racks full of these rifles in their retail store, Potomac Arms.  The price was $19.95.  I wish for a time machine. 

Spunky, do you need the whole part, or need your pin re-pointed?  If the latter post your location and someone should be able to recommend a competent gunsmith.

No threads for the following: Argentine 1891; Spanish 1895; Swedish 1896; Yugo '48.  All but the swede are currently advertised for sale so why no specific threads?  Especially the Spanish '95 since it's probably dangerous to shoot in .308.

Model 1910 Pistol / Re: A well used Sidelatch 1910

Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but what distinguishes a 1910 as a "Sidelatch"?  I own a 1910 and 3 1914 Mausers but know little about them.

Gebirg: For those of us in the USA, could you explain "deactivated"?  I'm pretty sure I understand, but most gun owners in my country do not have a clue what they might be facing.

Gonzo, your pistol is beautiful.  Do any of you know why the frame has a milled panel above the right grip?  I have seen this on only some 1914's, some blank, some with inscriptions.  ???

This is my first post on this forum.  239 persons have read your question, none have answered.  I think that's a "no".
