    Default Mauser 1934 Police - Variation 2

    A nice example of a Mauser Model 1934 Police pistol. It was acquired from fellow forum member
    Bruno (Bruno38). I had actually decided I wasn't going to purchase any more .32 calibre
    pistols for my collection as they are classified "prohibited" here in Canada and only so many
    of us are grandfathered into being able to legally own them. But, Bruno decided to
    downsize his collection and this is one of two pistols I have purchased from him that I just
    couldn't pass up on. I see from going through forum posts that it also once belonged to Marc (Kidvett).
    I guess it is now my turn to look after it for a few years. Thanks Bruno!

    Were the police proofs located where yours is shown?

    Hi Jeff,

    Most police proofs were on the back of the frame on the left side. Some were located above the grip on the right side as on this example.

    Very nice Mark. I am still looking for a Third Reich police 1934. I passed on a Eagle/C many years ago that I wish I had not let get away. Congratulations!

    According to Still in "Axis Pistols" (p.222-3), Variation 2 E/L is the scarcest one with an estimated procurement of 500 pistols only. Var.3 E/L (estimated 1,500 procured) has the police acceptance stamp on left rear frame. Var.1 E/C too has the police acceptance stamp on the left rear frame, with an estimated total of 2,000. In over 35 years of collecting, the one I just sold to "marfen" is the sole Third Reich M1934 I have ever encountered in Canada. --- Good move, amigo.

    I to have been on the lookout for a eagle l or C marked 1934. The only one I came close on was on gb and it was myself and one other person bidding and I eventually ran out of available cash. Oh well I am relatively young so I have time.
    Nice looking pistol by the way

    The last Eagle/L I saw sell on GB sold far over value IMHO. I think 2 buyers had more $ than since. It seems to be happening more often these days. A Red-9 recently sold over 3K, no stock or accessories, most of the finish gone, fire blue gone. Later the buyer asked value on another site, stating he thought it was worth 5K.

    New collectors need to learn but that was a expensive lesson.
