Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum but belong to several WWII German collecting forums. I'm not sure if I placed this in the right area, if not please move it to the correct one.

This gun and holster I picked up last night from someone that called me from my newspaper ad. I need to find out some info on it. When was it manufactured and used? Is it really a Nazi Navy pistol or used otherwise?

Here's a description:
The gun has all matching numbers. On the one side it has the markings- Waffenfabrik Mauser A.-G. Oberndorf A.N. Mauser's Patent and a Mauser logo below it. Grips appear to be ivory. Holster flap has 2 pips on it one being gold the other silver. On the inside flap it has a persons name. On the rear of the holster it has a Waffenamt and dated 1941 with somekind of maker logo and a P. Mod 27. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Ken

Ken, You have a Mauser 1914 with a Czech CZ 27 holster. Are there any Waffenamts? (Nazi eagle over Swaztika) If it's a Nazi Navy issue it will also have a fairly large M stamped on the left side, approx.above the trigger.Also look for any stampings on the front of the grip strap. The pistol without these markings is probably a commercial variation or possibly WWI. Are the gips plastic? They are not military issue. The holster is a Nazi stamp CZ 27 variation. And as such has collector interest and value.And appears to be in excellent cond.If they had'nt stuck the pips on the flap.This will detract considerably.
If I am correct in my assumption. The pistol and holster should be roughly in the $350.00 to $400.00 range.
Ken I forgot to add,that if the grips are plastic. Then they are an after market add on. At the exteme outside chance that they are Ivory. They will be worth as much if not more than the whole rig. A way to find out, is to remove the grips. Heat a sewing needle to red hot(use pliers). Stick the hot needle point "gently" into an inside suface (not visible from outside view). If it sizzles and smells like burnt hair,then it's a good possibility that they are Ivory. If it smells like burn plastic, you will know!

There are no Waffenamt's on the gun nor is there a large M on the left side. So I guess it's safe to assume it's a commercial variation. The grip is plastic. An aftermarket piece. On the inside it's stamped Franzite. Thanks for your help.

Ken, Don't be disappointed. That's the way things go in gun collecting. It's still a nice pistol. I love 1914's and the later variation, the 1934(Which is what a Navy pistol would be). And the holster with the pips is loaded with history and character.It very well may be a Vet bring back,capture pistol. The WWII holster with pips is a good indicator. Also, the correct wood grips can be replaced.
