Don, Thanks for dating my Mauser. I never realized this pistol was imperial marked until Ron set me straight. I figured a later date because the condition is almost mint. The neat thing is, I have a 1917 Berlin marked holster to go with it. Thanks again, Joe

I really don't know if my production data is correct for M1910 serial numbers.
The following are some serial #/manufacture dates found in a chart made up by John LaCroix and which appeared several years ago in AutoMag. John spent a great deal of time researching in this area and I have no doubt that the information is valid.

Mauser 1910

6954 - 1910
289534 - 1925
293692 - 1926

Mauser 1914

223683 - 1921
318005 - 1925
342528 - 1926
376623 - 1927
379623 - 1927
466221 - 1929
490298 - 1932

Don, I have a 1914 Mauser with a serial # 46283, could you tell me the year of production, it seems pretty early and is in great shape.It also has an unusual front sight,rounded front to a point then straight cut at 45 degrees(with horizontal lines).Also no Cal.markings on right side. Thanks, HK

HK,
Your Mauser was manfactured in 1914. I'm not Don but I am sure he is using John LaCroix's research to determine year of production which is what I am using too.

wish i had a pic of it (no photography allowed!?!), but the Tenessee State Military Museum in Nashville has the Mauser pistol Sgt. Alvin York captured on display. i believe its a model 1914 in 7.65. (i wish i woulda taken notes.) i emailed the museum for the s/n and was told "that the number falls into the 3000 to 4000 range" which seems awfully low to me... perhaps ill get to downtown nashville once again...

Would 256,871 be 1921 as well? Very kind of you to field these questions. This one is police marked S.D.II.113., which I believe is Dusseldorf, Precinct two, pistol #113. It's also has the '1920' Weimar property stamp, right side slide after calibre stamp. There is no Mauser banner on the side plate. Thanks you all, Don
