Mauser HSc 7.65
 
I have a beautiful little .32, traded to my dad in the 60s by the American officer who took it from the German casualty in Europe. It has the Wehrmacht logo stamps. Bluing is mostly gone, but no rust and fully functional. Two questions:
1) What value has it?
2) Are records available to trace by serial number who it was issued to?

Pictures?? I mean basically it's a PPK clone but pics would be nice to gage it's condition for pricing...

$300-$600, depending on pre-war or wartime, and exact condition.

Are there records of who it was issued to? No. Not to give you a short answer, but no. Military weapons were issued to a unit, who then issued them to an individual. Being on the losing side, those records are gone.

Hmm. Never thought of it as a PPK copy. But it is a clean, non-snagging pocket pistol, and much more elegant than the new .380s!

While certainly not a "clone" of the PPK, it is in the same class of handguns. I always liked the Hsc more than the PPK. Heavy, but sturdy and accurate.

Dad also had a 1914 model Mauser. Talk about precise tooling! Taking that down to get the cosmoline out was a true pleasure!

Guess it would have been best to say that it's design was "influenced" by the PP/PPK sorry bout that :)

Very nice weapons BTW..
