Mauser Schnellfeuer serial numbers

1103 Views 25 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  eddie_C96
Mauser Schnellfeuer has two serial numbers: One on the side (later on the bolt endpart) and one on the lower part. By 4-digits full number it is 3 digits on the lower part, 5-digits means 4 on the lower part..
And if it is an early gun with 3-digits full number? I can not find any photos on this matter..
It would be great to hear some opinions on this issue.
Thanks in advance,

I do not see much difference…
Jonathan Ferguson, curator of the National Firerams Center in Leeds, UK, mentions in his book The "Broomhandle" Mauser a prototype of a Schnellfeuer-Pistole from 1926. Unfortunately, a wrong picture was erroneously shown in the book (p.18).

Enclosed is the correct picture that I received from Jonathan for a book review in a Swiss gun magazine. This pistol is in the National Firearms Center in Leeds, UK.

Actually, a short barrel.
Looks like a Bolo..

TY, then I will re-word: "D" type sights start to appear in 26xx range, however for some time "C" type and "D" type might have been used interchangebly - the same was reported for contemporary M1930 guns
