...I could go on about the Mauser HSc... but I won that fight too. It works now.
What did you have to do to make it work? I have a 1970s Interarms-era Mauser HSc .380 that is mostly reliable with Fiocchi ammo (including Perfecta and Brass MAXX), but is still very picky.
One of the magazines is completely unreliable, but I am convinced it is really a .32 and not a .380 mag.
At least it is pretty (nice bluing and such), which is more than I can say for my reliably bad Glock 41.
Never bought ammo for it, opted for reloading supplied instead. All have been my loads with Berrys RN & HBRN or my own cast & lube sized 92gr RN projectiles over W231.
Here is my posts from the Mausergungs.com
Explained my experiences & solutions. I am running Wolff springs throughout & +5% mag spring. Firing pin spring is difficult to say the least. There are 2 MIA in my living room & have not surfaced in 8 months. http://www.mauserguns.com/forum/index.php/topic,553.0.html
Just be careful with the HSc. I mean it's not something to shoot 200 rounds a week. Frame will crack, Trigger pin will break, Extractor will eject itself. The loose rumor is that the Interarms generation were really made in Spain, not Germany. Originally a 7.65mm Browning then offered in 9mm Kurz (380) when Interarms stepped into the picture.
How do you like it when the safety is on, round in the chamber & trigger pull drops the hammer in order to put it into full safe mode. Its hard to get over that but the safety does lift the FP out of the hammer contact. It works but still hard to feel OK to drop the hammer with safety on. After the hammer is dropped (full safe mode) Trigger is dead &when safety is put in fire position you get DA trigger or manual cock & SA.
I hate that the only way to drop the slide is to insert magazine.
I trust it now & would take it with me if needed. I only have one magazine for mine though. I want a real 380 with finger tab but see them going for $80-100+
