Pictured here is my example of a 1910/34 Mauser with a 1910 Mauser plastic straight grip. Actually , at this point in time and with this 1910/34 Model, Mauser utilized any and all remaining parts from the 1910 Mauser series in order to place this model into production. It was a advertising scheme of remaking an old shoe into a newer looking tennis shoe and calling it the next generation. The only certain thing that a collector can be sure of when determining whether or not he is looking at a 1910 or 1910/34 is the serial number. All 1910/34's are from serial 400,000 upward to approximately 426,000's. This example is estimated to be made in 1936. Production was from 1934 to 1940 with only a little over 26, 000 made.

FYI : I have always been of the opinion that in order to have a military holster it would have to possess a magazine pouch as a minimum. Era photos have shown that this is not necessarily so , as Officers have been shown with not only a 6.35mm pistol and holster but a holster without a magazine pouch as well. This is particulary true for Luftwaffe Officers as well as some General Officers of the Wehrmacht. Therefore, the one and only sole remaining criterion for a holster to be considered of "military" category is a holster that has a belt loop big enough which will fit a military size belt.
