I am selling this for a friend. It was supposedly taken off a German soldier during WWll. I can NOT confirm this. It is a Mauser 7.65 cal. pistol with a leather holster with the extra Mag. holder sewn on it.Holster is in FAIR condition and the pistol appears to be in GOOD condition. Bore is OK bluing is worn but,NOT rusty Grips are WOOD and NOT cracked.Pistol looks ok to me.Would appreciate a opinion on the value.The person that owns this pistol is having some hard times.

If the gun did come off a German it would have Nazi marking's. Neither gun nor holster does. It looks to be older but thats it. Being a 32 cal doesn't help the gun either. I say its about a $250 to $300 gun. I have found the 32 is a hard gun to sell because of the weak cal.

I have one just like it in 9mm kurz ( 380) and mine is worth 350-$475 but it is in much better shape and the cal is more desireable. This is an HSC mod. I am sedning you an offer Joe

I have just like it. It's a Mauser Model HSc. Mauser made the gun in competition with the Walther PPK hoping to win a large gov't contract. Look near the trigger guard on the left side and see what numbers/letters are below the Nazi Eagle. That will somewhat determine it's value as the HSc was used by the Army, Navy, and police. I'm fairly knowledgable you can PM if you want. Regards, Randy

Back in the 70's, I had one in .380. It was a very well made gun thats shape gave it a natural ability to point (at the intended target).

I thought they were just as well made as my Walther.

JMHO,

Steve
