Mauser did not limit their Model 1912 and 1912/14 pistols to just being chambered in 9mm – they also developed a number of prototypes in .45ACP. Today we have a series of three such prototypes showing the sequence of changes in the operating Mechanism used by Mauser. The first uses a friction lever with a buffer, the second is a revised version of friction delay, and the third uses the flapper-delaying system that became standard on the 9mm examples.
My previous video on the 9mm Mauser 1912/14:

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
