The Mauser HSc was originally intended as a commercial pistol, but was quickly adopted for military and law-enforcement use. A milestone in design and a giant leap forward for Mauser when it first hit the market in 1940, the HSc is a double action pistol of a very modern appearance. The hammer is concealed in the slide, leaving only the very tip protruding just enough to allow the thumb to cock it. The inertial firing pin-half-cock notch, slide mounted manual safety was an entirely new design that blocks the firing pin and lifts its head out of alignment with the hammer, making the HSc a very safe firearm to carry. This German-made double-action pistol features a 2-position safety and fixed low-profile sights. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
