Here is the Mauser 1914 I recently purchased at local estate auction for $90.00 plus 10% auctioneer fee. Came with two unmarked magazines and holster.

Holster 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. Could someone advise if they know of someone who can repair it?


The last three numbers of the serial number are stamped in different parts of the gun. Over all I would say it is at lest 95%

There are only two marking in front and behind the rear sight. The marking in front I can make out, looks like crown over two L's. The stamping behind the rear sight is a U with crown above it. Any information on this gun would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

George

You have an Imperial Army issue 1914 Mauser in very nice shape. They are found interspersed with commercial pistols in the 14227 to 179249 serial range.(see page 43-51 Volume I)

Your akah stamped holster is worth repairing.
lugerholsterrepair repair does excellent work and is often on this Forum.

At $99 its a bargin and worth many times the price.

Dear Jan:

Many thanks for your e mail. This Mauser 1914 does not fit correctly in the DRGM holster that came with it. When I put the gun in the holster I see why the stitching came apart in the front of the holster. If the stitching was intact in this holster one would not be able to close it cause the Mauser 1914 will not fit deep enough into the holster.

I think that possibly this DRGM holster is for a Walther PP pistol.

I have a Sauer & Sohn Police C 1942 black holster and this Mauser fits very well it it.

Any information on what type of holster that would be appropriate for my 1914 would be much appreciated.

Regards,

George

George,
The holster you have is definitely for a PP...I have the exact holster with the AKAH trademark, that came with my PP. I am sorry that I can't post pictures at this time, but the most common 1914 Mauser Holster is shown on pages 133 and 134 of Vol III of Wittingtons German Pistols and Holsters 1934-1945. This type of Holster was sort of a "Utility" type and fits several pistols.
