New to Me: Interarms Mauser HSc.

This will be my first post awat from the revolver forum. (and I'm new over there as well).

My buddy offered me this HSc for a deal I couldn't pass up.

I had fired it before and it's a fun little gun to shoot.

It came with a replica German Military holster and 80 rounds of .380.

The HSc is a wonderful pistol. I have one just like yours. You might read about some relaibility issues with a small number of them, but the fix is super easy although I don't recall what it is right now. Mine has never missed a beat. $475 to $550 is not an unusual price for an Interarms in like new condition.

I have a .32 from WW2. Unfortunately the front area from one side of the grips is broken off. I also have a nickel plated Interarms .380, but I paid more than your range high. I had been looking for an HSc for a while before I found it. I have had a few FTFs with it.

I did considerably better than the low estimate.

No box or manual though. I ordered a repro Manual online.

Now I'd like to buy another magazine or two.

Is there a way to touch up the blueing on that little bit thats worn on the right side of the slide there or shall I just get used to it?

Me, I'd just get used to it, but you could use a little cold blue.

Almost worth the price just for the .380 rounds

I'd add that when you do get mags for your HSc resist the temptation to go with aftermarket mags like Triple K. I would only go with original mags. If your pistol is prone to any feed issues aftermarket mags will only make thing worse, and often the mags are junk to begin with. Original mags can be pricey running $50 or more, but worth every penny. There is one on GunBroker right now.

In case you were interested, that holster is a surplus Russian military Makarov holster.

Aftermarket mags for these are just plain crap. No two ways about it.

I have one of these, serial number 01-3099 but need a repair done on the trigger pin. Does anyone know where I can get it repaired?

Most any qualified gunsmith should be able to repair it.

If you don't have anyone locally and are willing to wait some months, contact Cylinder & Slide Shop.
They're top gunsmiths.

Get on their waiting list and they'll let you know when to ship it.

I had one and it's a good carry piece if the 380 is OK for you. Some years later the HK 4 was made as a copy though it had an aluminum receiver.

I have one (Mauser Hsc), not repro, that 'came home' in 1945. Gun is in very good to excellent cond with 2 mags and original holster.

I had not thought about it in years till I saw this post.

Can anyone suggest source of value estimate, if it is worth anything.
