Went out on a weekly pawnshop tour to nearby towns. Nearby towns for me are fifty miles in any of the four directions. I stopped at this pawnshop, which is near a State Prison. It is amazing what turns up next to a prison.

Nothing to knock your socks off was found this time, however, I did locate a Mauser 6.35. The overall finish was "seasoned" but still had some sheen. The wood grips were worn but looked original, magazine had no markings but looked like it belonged, and the action seemed tight and responsive all around.

Serial #279XXX , Waffenbrick Mauser AG Oberndorf (AN?) Germany . Near the right front Muzzle there was a sideways “U” which looked like it had the numbers 88 stamped in front. It looked like those numbers had been over stamped or scratched because they were hard to read. (but just those numbers)??

I would assume this is a .25 cal from early 1915-20’s.

My question: I know nothing about this pistol. The price the pawnshop was asking was $300.00. Is this pistol worth looking at again? Or are there a lot better examples of this pistol out there for better $’s? Every thing I have viewed at this pawnshop seems to be way over priced, is this another?

Thanks for any info. I am going to try and research some general info on this pistol just so I can store it away for future notice.

Pawnshops rarely have "deals" unless they need to turn around some money... Doesn't hurt to look, but a big gunshow will have more to offer at better prices....

Model 1910 Mausers seldom command that kind of price unless in spectacular original condition.
