Question 1937 S/42 VARIATION

I am a bit confused on variations & numbers....1937 S/42 Serial No. 4XXXv should be a 2nd Variation & Salt Blued with no strawed parts [img]confused.gif[/img] Would it be a Late 37 Production?

An occasion to add a new piece to my collection...

That sounds interesting. What should my all matching salt blued S/42 1936, SN 19XX suffux g look like? It has no strawed parts and I've been told it's only a shooter.

Kidvett, your V-Block is a second variation and should be Hot Salt Blued with NO strawed parts!

AGE your 1936 should be rust blues, with strawed parts. If you don't have the strawed parts, it very likely has been reblued!

Your 1936 S/42 Mauser in "g" block Should be rust blued with strawed parts with interior surfaces polished to white steel. Magazine issued with it would be the Army one type with aluminum bottom and nickel plated body with probably the Eagle 63 acceptance stamp on the mag. Should also have checkered walnut grips. No frame bump in the "g" block!

Thanks Frank and Thor, I guess I was told correctly that it's a shooter. After looking at the response to the 1937 above, I had some high hopes. Mine is dark blue and is blued on the inside. It had a magazine with a black plastic base (no markings), but I picked up an aluminum bottom magazine. It does shoot pretty well with both magazines, although the aluminum bottom one is difficult to load.

AGE, do you use a loading tool? If not, you can get some pretty good reproductions for less that $20 and it will make the magazine loading process go much easier! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Frank,

Naw, I don't use a loading tool. I have enough trouble stopping my shooting session, at least sore fingers remind me to quit. Also, with a wood bench it isn't really too difficult to place the magazine button under the bench top and hold the follower down while loading rounds into the magazine.

Thanks for your interest.

AGe, me too, I have one loading tool, but it is always so hard to get it out and stop what I'm doing, so I just use my fingers.

I have found that it depends on the magazine on whether it is easy or hard to load.

Cool

OK Guys, bugger up your thumbs (fingers) if you want to. <img src="graemlins/c.gif" border="0" alt="[ouch]" /> I can usually tell when it's time to quit when my groups start to open up or when I run out of ammo. The nice thing about that is my fingers are not sore!!! [img]biggrin.gif[/img] <img src="graemlins/beerchug.gif" border="0" alt="[cheers]" />

I usually take about 4 handguns to the range about once a week. When my fingers are sore from the Luger (about 50 rounds) I switch to another 9mm. Then I move up to the .45s (SAA and 1911) until time runs out.
