The pocket pistol series includes the Model 1910, Model 1914, and Model 1934. They are very similar to each other with differences in caliber and small features such as the shape of the grips. There are also other rare variants such as the Model 1912-14, which were experimental and did not go into production. These pistols are fairly common yet uniquely well-made, well-finished compact pistols. The Model 1934 was a standard sidearm of the Nazi Kriegsmarine (Navy) during World War II.

1910 Mauser Pocket Pistol

Mauser Taschenpistole M1910 - 6.35x16mmSR

As the military was not interested in large-caliber pistols, they turned their attention to the development of the first pocket pistol in 6.35 mm caliber. In 1911, the Mauser Selbstlade Pistole ("Mauser self-loading pistol") caliber 6.35 was presented. Since Mauser did not give this pistol a model designation at the time, it is referred to as the 1910 model according to a classification by collectors. This not-exactly small pocket pistol was also popularly known as a Neunlader ("nine-loader") due to its large magazine capacity.

A typical feature of this model is the short extractor and a nickel-plated magazine. This model is also the only one with a trigger axis that also functions as a holding lever for the cover plate.

This model, known in English literature as the "side latch", was only manufactured from 1911 to mid-1913 in around 61,000 units. This extremely well-made gun was an immediate sales success and was even exported to the USA.

Once again, Mauser had not given these pistols their own model designations. The instruction manuals merely refer to them as "New Model" or "Large Model". Collectors refer to the 7.65 as the 1914 model and the 6.35 as the 1910/14 model. It is noteworthy that most of the small parts of the 1910 model are not interchangeable with those of subsequent models. Later magazines do not fit into the magazine well.

1914 Mauser Pocket Pistol

Mauser Taschenpistole M1914 - 7.65x17mmSR

The origin of this weapon lay in the Mauser 1910 pocket pistol, which was only equipped for the weak 6.35 mm Browning cartridge. The new model was technically identical but fired more powerful ammunition and was fitted with a slide stop. This was intended to make the pistol more suitable for use by the authorities. During the Weimar Republic, it was used as a service weapon by many German police formations.

With the appearance of the superior Walther PP, however, sales plummeted. The Mauser had neither a double-action trigger nor a decocking safety. The Walther only had a magazine safety. Even with a cocked gun and a cartridge in the chamber, no shot could be fired after the magazine had been removed.

Although the weapon was not designed for military purposes, it was still used occasionally. It was used by the German Imperial Army during the First World War.

  • Caliber: 7.65x17mmSR/.32 ACP
  • Length: 5.98 inches
  • Barrel Length: 3.38 inches
  • Weight: 1.32 pounds (gun)
