    New finds

    A lady friend of mine owns an estate company and forwards all the firearms to me to value and acquire if I want them. These three pistols were found in a sock drawer by and older lady and they belonged to her Father....A mint 1914 Mauser (32 cal.) I don't think it was ever shot. (fire blue extractor and trigger. The screws, barrel and grips are also in excellent shape. (By serial number, 1922) An HR 32 &W which is also mint. I'm not sure of its age or value, but very nice looking?IMG_0071.jpgIMG_0072.jpgIMG_0070.jpgIMG_0067.jpgIMG_0065.jpg The last one is a Browning but the one side was left in water and has some light pitting which has no collector value but works fine......It was loaded when I acquired it.
    Thanks for looking,
    Joe

    Here's the Baby Browning.......Not nice or valuable but it works! The parts are probably worth more than the gun?***** I added a picture of the fire blue on the extractor and trigger looks the same.

    The Mauser 1914 looks reblued. It should have a fire blued trigger and the markings look a little soft.

    It does have a fire blue trigger + extractor. Some of the marking are lightly struck but not buffed over. I own around twelve 1910, 1914 and 1934 Mauser pistols and the finishes vary except for the 1934 Mauser pistols.

    nice to have a estate sale connection. we had a estate sale when we put my mom in a assisted living home. the lady that runs it explained they have connections for furniture, guns, China etc and most of the stuff is sold before the actual weekend sale. I had a couple beater surplus rifles that her contact bought off me. jim
