    Mauser 1910 .25

    My grandfather picked up a Mauser 1910 .25 when he was in Italy during WWII. He also has the uniform holster that goes with it. To the best of his knowledge it came from an officer in the Wehrmacht but admittedly, he said there was so much stuff available, the true origin before it reached the person he got it from is unverifiable.

    Fortunately, it was stored much better than his other pistols and it in fantastic condition. I had to remove a little bit of surface spotting from rust but other than it is tip top and has complete matching serial numbers on all marked parts. I took it to the range today with my father, who had fond memories of firing it while growing up.

    It fired like a champ. No FTF's and spot on accurate. The sights are tiny so I wouldn't want to have to aim fast at distance but its fun to shoot. Almost no recoil, at least not after firing a .40 for a while. I would definitely consider it reliable as a pocket gun although because of its history, its going in the safe, only to come out for stories and the range

    Of course, its no good without pics.

    Super cool! That thing looks mint! Was it stored cocked? My Dad had an old German .32, it was left cocked for many years, and the spring went bad.

    I don't believe so Scuba. The springs feel great. Now the mag was stored with those 8 rounds in it for probably at least 20 years or more, but it feeds and fires perfectly. We used some Remington UMC .25 FMJ.

    that is a good looking piece. One that old dosent look much better than that one.

    Check with Wolf, they had springs for my dad's old Walther P-38. $22 replaced every spring in the gun including the magazine.

    That one is in better condition than the usual run-of-the-mill.

    Thanks for the good photos!

    My Uncle had one. It was not as pretty as yours.
    Not incredibly rare but, yours is in extra nice condition. It's a tough little well built gun and it can handle shooting .25 all day long.
    A fun gun to shoot. Just keep it wiped down with a light coat of oil to avoid that surface rusting.
