From the 1937 Mauser company history book.


The lady is doing final assembly of a batch of M1934 pistols.

The WR stamp has been verified by Prof. Dr. Rolf Gminder (former Mauser Managing Director) as "Factory Proof or Final Audit" of an HSc assembly part.  For that reason the French marked most of their HSc pistols with the large WR ("Werksrevision") on the Trigger Guard to signify a completed and accepted unit.

Having given you all this information, I would request that you provide a complete serial number of your HSc for our database.  If you are shy about sharing it publicly you can PM it to me.  Thank you.

On the barrels of some German produced HSc's is the same style RW proof right ? Its on this one and some of my others or at least a partial strike of it. Werke revision? ...usually around the area of the lasst 3 digit serial stamp.  Seems the same proof logo used on the French HSc trigger guard area.

The Ulm proof house was established in 1952. It replaced the Oberndorf proof house which ground to a halt in april, 1945.


During French control proofing was done in-house at Mauser. There was a period of uncertainty in april, 1945 during the evacuation of part of the Mauser staff, tools, machines and parts en route to Austria.


It is not unlikely that those who remained behind redistributed guns to locals for self protection.


It would also have taken some time for the French to come up with a game plan. But the number of unproofed HSc's is still going to be limited, despite the uncertainties Oberndorf and Mauser had to deal with.


It is still strange why HSc's under French control were WR proofed and P38's were Star proofed. Have to check what they did on WTP pistols.

Proofing was sporadic throughout the Post-War era on the HSc.  This may have been  because it was not a priority for the French or the Ulm Proof House may not have been a full-time operation then.  Either way, there were no serial numbers in large groups that fell in this category.
