I have found a Mauser Model 1934 Police with a parkerized finished. I thought that all Mauser model 1934 had a high-polish hot salt blue finish. Would this indicate that this pistol had been refinished? If it has been refinished then would it be considered a fake or should the gun just be worth less. Thanks Bob

I agree. I saw this Mauser model 1934 police with parkerized finish advertized at G&G Relics, which said the serial # was in Penders book. I am on a learning curve.It struck me as odd, since it said it was the only one the author had seen. I do not have Penders book but if someone could look on page 170 and let me know what you think.

I am looking at page 170 in Pender's book and he states:
Among a list of things,
Finish: parkerized(not factory original)
Comments: This is the only "Eagle C" marked 1934 pistol known to the author. It is also the lowest serial numbered pistol observed that was accepted by the Police System. The Eagle C marking is also observed on some Luger pistols dated 1939 and 1940. The author is of the opinion, however, that the 1934 pistol #550396 was made prior to that date.

I have a Model 1934 Police Eagle C stamped pistol with two matching serial numbered mags also stamped 1 and 2. The serial number of my pistol is 5496xx. My pistol has the hot dip, high polish finish one would expect to find on one of these pistols. I don't know what to tell you about the parkerized finish.
