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 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.
