5/21/18 - This is an original Mauser model 1914 pistol, third variation made during World War 1. The serial number puts this pistol towards the middle of wartime production. The pistol is in about 94% condition with most of the wear on the front strap. This is bluing loss, similarly found on the muzzle, edges of the slide, trigger, and on the right side of the frame on the "hump". The bore shows patina and some minor residue but rifling in tact. Excellent original wood grip appears used but no cracks or chips. Guaranteed original and fully functional.
