    I've always liked the looks of the Mauser Model 1914 and the HSc but never owned either gun. So now I do! One Model 1914 and two HSc pistols.

    The Model 1914 is a commercial model; based on appearances it was made in the 1921-1928 time frame and surprise of all surprises the older HSc was built in December of 1941 (according to someone on the Mauser Forum). Both of these two guns are chambered in 7.65 MM aka .32 ACP. The second HSc is an Interarms import; chambered in .380. It is supposedly made from (primarily) parts made by Manurhin of France and assembled by Mauser. No pictures of this one yet but here are the other two:

    Not knowing anything, just enough to show I don't know anything, about German WWII militaria, I go to websites like the "Unblinking Eye" for more information. What I learned was the HSc was made for the Army, Navy, and the Police. This one, with the German Acceptance Eagle and the letter L is one of approximately 28,000 made for the Police! It is missing a small piece of the left grip - the sharp point on the top front part of the grip is missing. On the right side of the trigger guard is the "Nitro" proof mark. Compared to what I paid and what this one is potentially worth...I did well!

    The luck of the Irish I guess. I've bee looking a long time for this revolver; I have a fixed sights, 4" barreled, nickel plated S&W Model 58 but yesterday I bought this blued with 4" MagnaPorted barrel S&W Model 57. Both guns are in .41 Magnum.

    Yesterday I bought a 1957 (first year manufacture when Colt started to make them again) Colt National Match .45. Its a pretty gun until you look at the idiot marks - and some "dumbass" marks where someone used a screwdriver to leverage out the slide stop...that's the difference between a $700 and a $1,500 gun!

    Other then that its a great looking gun...

    Saturday the red and blue trimmed white truck dropped off a long waited project. Last year Chuck Warner and I discussed making a "Retro Look" MEU (SOC) type clone using my 1st Generation Colt Delta Elite 10mm as a base gun. We agreed to terms and the wait began! Here it is; new barrel and bushing, King's old style barrel bushing, Bambi-safety, flat mainspring housing with lanyard ring...taller rear and silver soldered front sight. RANGE Tomorrow...

    I bought the newer production Colt Delta Elite 10mm early this year. Came with a ton of free range accessories too after I submitted a form online.

    Amazing caliber and accuracy!

    Of course now everyone and their mom makes 10mm handguns but we all know who started it all and kept the cartridge alive.

    Amazing to see it doing so well now! And crazy just how hot it can be loaded!

    Picked up a nice used Ruger GP100 .357 mag but also looking for a 10mm right now, any suggestions other than the Colt? I have looked at a Springfield and Rock Island but nothing else in between.
