The Mauser HSc was a fine pocket pistol made by Mauser commercially between 1936-1939. It was chambered in 7.65x17mm / .32 ACP for personal and police use, however, when World War II began in earnest, the Government dedicated all Mauser HSc production to the military, thus it was a Wehrmacht issued pistol between 1940-1945. Mauser did one production run in the post war years, between 1968-1977. Chambered for both .32 ACP and .380 ACP, the cosmetic changes were slight, but obvious enough to visually distinguish the two eras of gun production. The most obvious difference at first glance is the differing pattern on the wooden grips.
