Dear Friends:

I have attached pictures of plastic grips for a 1914 Mauser. They came with a 1914 Mauser as well as wood grips. The inside of the plastic grip is marked with a MAUSER Banner and M.32. Could someone tell me about them.

Also a holster came with it. It is brown soft shell style with DRGM with crossed rifles and below it is stamped Akah. Any info would be much appreciated. I wonder if it would be worth have this holster professionally repaired or would the cost of repair be more than it is worth.

Would this holster have come with my 1914 Mauser commercial model. Serial number on gun is #128533.

Thanks in advance for answering my questions.

Regards,

George

Being that I reside in New York, it takes a few days for the paperwork to go through, hence I do not have the gun at this time.

This is my first Mauser 1914 and have to admit I know nothing about them, except I felt like I always needed one for my collection.

I say it was commercial cause I saw no marking on it. Gun was purchased at local auction and I did not have time to truly inspect it. I would say that in better than 95%. Included were holster, plastic grips, two unmarked magazines.

I will upload pictures after I pick it up.

Regards,

George

The wood grips are on the gun which I do not have at this time, hope to pick it up on Tuesday.

After market plastic grips with a Mauser Banner molded inside the grip. I would think this would be odd. My thinking is that the grips were made for or by Mauser since it has their logo molded inside the grips.

A Mauser logo on the grips would be very interesting.
Franzite grips had the Fanzite logo on the inside.
I've never seen a set of Franzite grips without the Logo.
Here is a photo of the Franzite logo from repro CZ27 grips:

Note that your grips have the same "wood screw" impression, which I believe to be from the injection molding process. Your photo is not clear. Look carefully. Are your gips marked Franzite or Mauser ?

George:

All of the reference data that I am familiar with indicates that the M1914 was factory fitted with either wood grips or hard rubber grips.

If Mauser did, in fact, produce these grips, which I doubt, they were not original to your very early pistol.

Dear Friends:

My apologies! What I thought that was a Mauser banner was actually the Fanzite logo on the inside. I guess I really do need to wear my reading glasses and install 100watt bulb in my lamp.

Sorry.

Regards,

George
