Hi everyone,
My LGS has a German-made Mauser (Interarms) .380 in satin nickel with
serial # 01.224XX. I tried online with no luck but I'm guessing early 70s. I've
read mixed reviews on the .380 version, but he's only asking $275 OTD and
it seems to be in really nice shape. I also get to shoot the thing b4 making a
commitment. Any thoughts on this gun or maybe how old it is? Thanx for any help.

Production of high-quality commercial pistols was resumed at the Mauser factory in Oberndorf from 1968 to 1977. These were issued to certain German police units and exported mainly to the North American commercial market. They were available in both blued and nickel finishes.
The pistol originally chambered the 7.65 mm (.32 ACP) cartridge, but the majority of Mauser HScs manufactured in the 1970s were chambered in 9mm Kurz (.380 ACP).

I have this wartime example, it's a .32 and has Wehrmacht acceptance stamps.

Nice example. The only thing I don't like about the one I'm looking at is the magazine release, but I guess they're all like that. (n)
