Gentlemans hello
need to explain next question about firing pin for Mauser 1910/1914
first type for Mauser 1910 .25 4-parts like this
642997


Second type 2-parts like this for Mauser 1910 and 1914 .32 caliber
643000



and 3 type for frame with no indicator
643001


Which type of firing pin for this type frame? Like Browning 1910\1922

thanks if anybody can post photo and measurements

I have never seen a frame like that without the firing pin indicator hole. And I have probably over 30 Mauser Pocket pistols. So that is a new one for me.
Is the slide numbered to the frame? And is it proofed on top of the slide?

Your photos don't show anything else unusual with the pistol, so yeah it's a new one for me. Maybe Burgess aka 1914mauser has seen others like it, but I haven't.

This is new to me also. Is it possible to show the frame with the slide removed?

This is a first for me as well. The back of this example appears un-finished. Not just the frame but the slide as well. The round protrusion of the slide and frame are not the typical dome shape one would expect. Could this be a reject that somehow made it out of the factory?

The first striker is from a Sidelatch, second is a typical striker. I have observed other strikers where the tail piece or cocked indicator, was detached from the striker. I do not know if this was how they were made or if they are ones that came a part.

Regards,

Clearly two or three ops were not completed yet it was blued and serialized. Strange. Almost like a prop gun, no?

Thank you Ed, The image you posted clearly illustrates what I was doing my best to describe. I assume that the machining of this feature would occur after the slide and frame were paired. A unique example for certain.

Regards,

Seems like it could conceivably use a firing pin without the indicator pin on the back.

Anything is possible but I had not heard of Chinese knock-offs of this weapon. And it appears to be original German. And knocking off a weapon that is almost, but not quite a copy is very odd. I'd be interested in Burgess' thoughts on the matter.

I think it unlikely that it is a Chinese copy. Everything about it appears correct with the exception of the area being discussed. I have gone over the images several times looking at the details. I did notice the pin that holds the trigger parts together appeared to be sticking out a bit. The barrel retaining rod spring is a replacement (stamped not milled). The grip shows wear and I noted a hole in the right side? Its an oddity, no doubt.
