About a month ago, I bought a used (excellent, 98% condition) Mauser pistol.
Blue finish, full sized wood grips, 3" barrel
Came w/ (2) 13 rd. mags
D/A, with slide mounted safety

On the box is:
Interarms
Manufactured under license by Renato Gamba
HSC Super .32 Caliber
SN EO184#

Did not come w/ a safety manuel. Attempts to secure one from Interarms have been unsuccessful, so far.
Any info regarding the history, date of manufacture, and yes, how to correctly take down and re-assemble the pistol, is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time and help...

Harley,
Thanks for the disassembly/assembly info.
I finally got it downloaded properly on my end.
There's a first time for everything...

You are most welcome. From what I gather, downloading to hard drive, then opening (jpeg) will usually do the trick. Sometimes however, it get's to the client in mim format and that, I understsnd has to be downloaded to zip.

Harley,
It did come to me in mim format and I had to do that zip thing.
I have no idea what I just wrote...

Is anyone out there familiar with the Mauser pistol?

foxfire-I am familiar with this piece. I had one in 380. I liked it a lot. Small, above average accuracy for the tiny sights, and I really liked the hammer setup. Have fun with this little gem.

Steve,

Thanks for reminding me about the hammer.
Never have seen one quite like it.
Haven't fired it yet, as I wanted to be sure about the takedown procedure first. Plus give it a thorough cleaning.
So I don't know about its accuracy.
I plan on hanging on to the pistol.
Sounds like a keeper, 'cause not too many folks know much about it. Plus, I don't part with anything!
Guess it was worth the $200 I paid...
