[size=4]Because of a death in the family, I inherited a Mauser .380, from my uncle. He loved guns and had a few Glocks. I did get this Mauser .380. He told me at one time that it had to be 35-40 years old.
I will try to describe what is written on both sides of slide Left side of slide marked, [as you would hold in firing position] Original Mauser Mauser Werke AG Obarndorf a.N. Model HSc Made in Germany. Right side of slide, [holding in firing position] Interarms Alexandria Virginia, USA, with a Starburst toward the front. 01 225932.
Walnut grips, all Blue, Mag release is on the botton. It is all steel, and blowback design. It is perfect with no blemishes, checked under magnification.
Comes with orig, soft nylon box, small bore brush and orig. factory practice German target &
original operating instruction manual
This mauser fits in styrafoam insert in blue box. Has 1 orig. mag., and 2 aftermarket mags. This Mauser is just a beautiful piece of work. I did not inherit any Glock, but wondering if I got something better. Need to know a rough estimate of worth. hanks,
They range from $200-500 for imports depending. Most of the ones I've seen with the target box, marked the way you say, and in the condition of your's are in the $400 range.
They're very well built guns. Frankly I think as an inheritance, it's better than a Glock.Not knocking Glocks, but old stuff always seem to have more character. I'd rather have character when it's connected to a loved one that's passed on.
