The right side of the slide is marked “01 24855”, “Interarms / Alexandria, Virginia U.S.A.” and with a “Star” logo. The right side of the frame is marked with a “FBM” banner. The barrel is marked “9mm kurz / .38”, with an “Eagle over N” proof, “74” and an Ulm antler proof.

Barrel Length: 3.3”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a short blade with the rear face painted yellow. The rear sight is a square notch dovetailed into the slide with the area below the notch painted yellow. The top of the slide has a matte finish to reduce glare.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are checkered walnut. The right grip has a shallow compression on the top shoulder and compression marks on the rear edge. The left grip has a compression mark in the top front corner and another on the front edge. The checkering shows heavy wear on the left grip with a compression mark across the width of the grip. The right grip shows moderate wear in the checkering with no mars. The grips rate in about Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: The slide and frame are blued. The barrel has a straw finish.

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright. The rifling is sharp. There is no erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This pistol retains about 80% of its metal finish. The edges of the slide and lower edges of the frame show surface loss. The sides of the slide and frame show light handling marks. The top rear of the slide and the serrations on the right side of the slide show handling marks. The right lower edge of the frame shows compression marks that someone tried to smooth out, with subsequent surface loss along the top right edge and the lower edges extending to the back of the trigger guard. There are small compression marks around the trigger pin on the right side of the frame, and the trigger pin is disfigured on both ends. The rear of the frame shows surface loss and the backstrap shows handling marks with a patch of scratches through the finish. The bottom of the backstrap shows surface loss as does the side edge on the safety. The barrel shows frosting. The side of the safety shows thinning and the serrations on the hammer and safety are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this pistol rates in about Very Good to Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. However, while the safety blocks the pistol from being fired in double action mode, it does not stop the hammer from falling if the safety is engaged after the hammer is cocked. We did not fire this pistol.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This pistol comes with one 7-round blued magazine, marked with the Mauser “Banner” logo on the floorplate. It is in Excellent condition with very little wear. The pistol comes in a blue vinyl case that shows stains and dirt on the surfaces, with a few minor scratches. The inside of the case has a Styrofoam liner in the bottom section that is fitted for this pistol and a magazine. The Styrofoam is intact but shows compression marks and oil staining. The lid of the box has a plastic band across its inner surface which is holding a white nylon bore mop, an Owner’s Manual and a factory test target. Overall, the box is in Fine condition. The bore mop appears unused. The Owner’s Manual is slightly discolored from age, and is in Fine condition. The test target shows a 3 shot 1 ¼” group shot at 15 meters and is also in Fine condition.

Our Assessment: The Mauser Model HSC pistols were made by the Germans during WWII and later by the French when they took over their factory and tooling. This pistol is a later German manufacture produced after the 1968 import ban. It is in Very Good to Fine condition, with a great looking bore and a slide that is tight to the frame. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to shoot. It has a slide hold-open feature that only allows the slide to cycle forward when a magazine is re-inserted into the grip. However, you might want to get a gunsmith to look at this, because we are not sure the safety is operating correctly. It might also appeal to the Mauser collector who wants to round out his/her collection with a post WWII model.
