Othais and Mae delve into the story of this WWI classic. Complete with history, function, and live fire demonstration.

Mauser Model 1914 “Pocket Pistol”
Cartridge: .32 ACP
Capacity: 8 rnds
weight: 1.3 lbs
This handgun was mostly a product of Josef Nickl and would begin the concept of a “pistol family” in the commercial market. Sadly it never realized its dream of 9mm glory, but still enjoys a major place in firearms history.

C&Rsenal releases their flagship series “Primer” every other week. It focuses on one firearm of the Great War at a time, in depth with animations, live fire demonstrations, and historical context! Our mission is to document and describe historical military small arms from across the world. We hope to share our love for all the attention that went into the design, development, manufacture, and issuance of these pieces.
