would you gentlemen be so kind as to school me in the markings of this particular pistol.I have not purchased it yet but it is all matching #s and has "u" proofs and a proof i cant make out in front of rear sight was told this may be a military contract pistol, not a comercial?
any info would be helpful

The best thing to do Jay, is to do a search on the forum for m1934's.

Then you can look at others.

I do not have one, nor the expertise, so that is the best I can do for you! :)

It would be very helpful if you would gather a little more information, such as serial number, and inscriptions on the slide and frame. There are many variations of Mauser 1914/1934 and it would be difficult for us to guess what you are talking about.
The following post shows a Mauser 1914 that has a C/C/U behind the rear sight and a crown/scriptic letter in front of the sight.

once again Jan & Ed
you have pointed me in the right direction
the pistol im about too purchase has identical markings @ rear sight as the ones in the photos,
although there is no blue left the weapon is all brown patina, all #s match it looks "brand new" other then the color.
the guy wouldnt give me serial # over phone but gave me the 1st #s (paraniod mabye?)
41xxx hope this helps as i know nothing of these pistols but it seemed like an opportunity they are asking 250.00 does this seem right? included is a photo of markings at rear sight not the same pistol this was taken from the board but they are the same
thanks again for your help you guys here are great!
Jay

Hi Jay,
You could offer $175-$200.All they can do is say no. You could send it off to Ted Green (Thor) and have it reblued.It would look like it came from the factory and you would still be money ahead. Any 1934 in decent shape is worth $200-$250. Just my take on it.

SN in the 41,000 range would not be a 1934? The dull 'patina' could also be rust bluing that has 'turned' thru neglect? Also, many old guns had been reblued [rust blue] by the Germans before WW-2.

Gentlemen,
I have just returned from the shop, and Orv you are correct this is a 1914 in .32
all the other info i posted is correct,
would this change any of your statements?also having these markings,
could it be a Mil. issue or purchase?
thanks and my apologies!
Jay
