Model HSC Pistol / Re: Low Grip Screw HSC on GunBroker

Thank you.   I wish my "M" was half this nice of shape.   I thought it went below book and market value.  The broken grips probably hurt it's sales value.   Seller said he had sold 5.   Seems like a really nice vendor.

General Discussion / Reduced load for 7mm 1893 Mauser
« Last post by soonerfan66 on October 15, 2020, 02:53:44 PM »
Does anyone know about a reduced load for 7mm Mauser using IMR4895 , 160GR round nosed bullet . The chart shows 34.0 gr as minimum load but is it still safe to go lower some or would that cause pressure issues . Was doing test loads and from the higher test loads going down the group kept getting better so was wondering if I took it a bit lower would the group continue getting better . Had been using H4895 for years but ran out and trying to figure out my loads with the IMR4895 I was able to get .

I have no affiliation with this auction. This is just so no one misses out on the opportunity to own this rare variation.

$450-650 is a conservative auction estimate.

Makes sense why I could not pinpoint exactly what it was. I would see listings and pictures of two similar Mauser pistols but they would be labeled as two completely different models. What do these 1914s typically go for these days? Thank you again for your help.

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Cone Hammer Trigger
« Last post by vietvet191 on October 11, 2020, 09:34:40 AM »
I have searched the internet to the extent of my abilities, and have not been able to find the answer I'm looking for.  How is the trigger mechanism removed from a Cone Hammer?I can see why Mauser changed the design of the trigger and firing pin on the Large Ring.  Removing the firing pin is a real pain.  Try though I may, I still haven't been able to figure out the trigger.

Model 1914 Pistol / Re: Nickel model 1914

Thank you for your help! Iím excited to find out the history on this pistol. Iíve had a couple of people look at it and both agreed it appeared to be a factory finish. Iíll keep digging on it. I saw one post on another forum that estimated special order with nickel finish was in the neighborhood of one in 5000. If true, with only about 10,000 made, it would be extremely rare indeed!!! If you are able to come up with anything else, please let me know! Thank you again!

Yes, you are correct it is a second model variation. I refer to these as 1914 early production. It is believed these were made in 1913. These followed the Humpback variation which were preproduction or prototypes. Approximately 10,000 of this second model variation were made. I have yet to see one that was factory nickel plated. There are examples of the Sidelatch .25 caliber model that were factory nickel plated and were produced before or around the same time as yours. These second model variations are pre WWI produced thus made for commercial consumption. Because of these 2 facts, a factory nickel finish cannot be ruled out. To verify it being an actual factory original finish would require an in hand inspection by someone with knowledge of period nickel finishes. It would be very exciting to have it verified as factory original. If it is you are to be congratulations on acquiring a rare example.
