A friend of mine picked up a 1910/34 Mauser Pocket pistol at a Phoenix gun show today that is pretty unusual. S/N is 428166 marked on the left front of the slide. There is no partial S/n on ther rear of the slide. The pistol is nickel plated and it is very old nickel with heavy grip strap wear. Looks like a factory nickel job as described by Pender on page 88/89.
Cal.6.35 D.R.P.uA.P. is on the right slide with an "Eagle N" proof on both the slide and the barrel. The left side of the slide is deeply stamped with MAUSERWERKE OBERNDORF a.N. and the Mauser banner. The slide has seven serrations. The grips are swept back black plastic with the Mauser logo. The magazine is nickle plated with a round front toe and the Mauser banner on the bottom.
I've never seen a 1910 with an Eagle N proof and cannot find any referrence in Pender to indicate there were any. If any of you have some thoughts on this pistol I would appreciate your input.
Thx, Lyn

It would be helpful to see pictures. I have a few 1910/34 Mausers and the S/N on the frame (partial) is under the grip not on the rear of the frame under the slide like earlier 1910s. Pender does state "No 1910/34 pistol have been seen with the eagle N definitive proof" but the S/N you list is higher than the highest listed in his book for the 1910/34. I have discovered other examples of Mauser pistols that disprove some of Pender’s assumptions but don't forget his book was published over 30 years ago. I have only seen 2 images of 1910/34 that had a factory nickel finish both had the black plastic grip and were at the high end of the S/N range.

Burgess,
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but I've been traveling. I'll take a couple of pictures and forward them to you by e-mail. The pistol and my friend are out of town until after the weekend of the 28th, so it will be after that. Thanks for your comments.
Lyn
