Mauser 1912/14 Development in .45ACP

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

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.

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.
