Mauser Model 1914 “Pocket Pistol”
Cartridge: .32 ACP
Capacity: 8 rnds
Length: 6.1”

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.
