    Default Brown Coarse HK Grip Data Request

    The purpose of this study is to learn where the coarse brown plastic HK grips that Mauser acquired ended up. With Jan's pemission, I am using the pistols listed from his sticky on 1940 42 Code Variations and added a few I had on file as a place to start. All that is needed is the year and serial number.

    1940 - 42 code

    5037 g
    5906 g

    Just curious, why would Mauser have needed to scarff plastic grips from HK, especially for 'commercial' Banners, as they were appearently using wood well into the byf 41s, and maybe later?

    Mike.... I think many agree that Mauser got some parts from HK in 1939 to include some old Simson E/6 sideplates (which you see from time to time on Banners) along with some brown plastic grips. I also have a 1939 Police Banner that has a E/6 stamped receiver.

    Dave, thanks for the answer and the message. I'd just never run across any Mausers in my travels other than 'widows' with original plastic grips, and they were all black.

    Mike... You kind of hit upon the reason for this thread. I don't think there were all that many and up until a few weeks ago the only brown plastic grips I had seen were on 1940-42 code pistols. I was at a small show and the 42 BYF came in. Not for sale and I believed his story on the history of the gun. It should be interesting to see what all turns up.

    I have added a 41 BYF Ku 4129 which is pictured and discribed on Page 254 of Randall Gibson's THE KRIEGHOFF PARABELLUM. Comments appreciated.
