I recently picked up a 1914/34 Mauser, and the magazine doesn’t seem to fit. It’s a 7.65, and I was wondering if the magazine belongs to a HSC. It has no markings. Any ideas out there?
I don't think that's possible, but I til I get home tomorrow and try it, I can't completely tell you it's not possible.I appreciate this. I watched it yesterday and took everything apart that was necessary, and it seems the mag is still to long. I’m wondering if an upper 7.65 (32acp) and a lower 6.35 (25acp) were put together if that is even possible?
I will take pics of the postal tomorrow without the grips on. From what I can tell this is the only way the spring can go in. So a fresh set of eyes is needed.The magazine catch spring is poking out, it should be further up.
When installed incorrectly, or broken, it will jam the triangular shaped magazine/slide safety. And possibly prevent the magazine from going in.
