2/27/18 - This is a superb example of an early WWII Mauser HSC pistol that retains nearly 99% of its original high polish blue, with excellent grips and bore. This is the most desirable early variant that was made at the start of the war. Most were purchased by the Wermacht and Luftwaffe officers as their personal sidearms. The blueing is deep and lustrous and has just a hint of wear on the front edges of the slide. Mint bore. No cracks or chips in grips. Half-moon magazine.
