Looking for information on first production, low grip screw variety Mauser HSc pistols from serial number 700001 through 701347.

This first HSc production at Mauser Werke consisted of high-quality, commercial pistols from which the Kriegsmarine (Navy) procured approximately 500. These bear a pantographed Eagle over M on the front grip strap between the trigger guard and the serial number. The remaining pistols, without the KM marking, were available to the commercial market.

1) Can anyone verify that any of the following six reported HSc pistols somewhere out there bear the above described Kriegsmarine (Navy) proof: 700067, 700129, 700220, 700223, 700322 and 700395?

2) Does anyone have, or know of, additional surviving low grip screw HSc serial numbers in this serial range of 700001 to 701347, Navy or Commercial? (Other than those listed in Jan Still’s Axis Pistols)

Interested only in serial number data, not who, what or where. Photos would be super!

Thanks in advance!

Hello Pisto:
Thanks very much for the auction information on the two Mauser HSc's!
Do you have the catalog page from the October 2000 auction that would indicate if pistol 700662 has the marineadler/HK? I wish you success in adding one of these to your collection in the future. Thanks again...keep us posted!

Adler,

just came across this post. The HSc sold at Hermann Historica SN 701257 in October 2003 has no KM marking, it is a commercial. I can confirm this, because 701257 belonged to my father some time before the auction, and I examined it closely. I still have a photo of the left side made in the eighties - if you like to see it, please advise.

I have recorded the following LGS Mausers over the past 10-15 years.
...GS or KM indicates KM markings..

Sources were all the available books at the time..plus a lot of stuff from FC Greer, Peter Theodore, and AUTOMAG. [I was recovering from surgery and had nothing better to do at the time!]

Peter,

here are two photos of the HSc SN 701257. The right item for "pistol collector's Halloween". Whooooo…… Now you will know, why the right side was shown in the Hermann Historica catalogue – the left side is even more frightening. The whole pistol is in an "onion condition": makes your eyes filled with tears, because of the condition/rareness ratio, what is 0.001 or so.

Anyway: it has no KM markings.

Martin
