For whatever reason, I've always wanted one of these for my collection. I like unusual pistols, so I broke my trend of buying classics earlier this year to pick it up for a mere $300. This is also my first gun purchase since buying a Ruger Blackhawk in March. Its in clean shape and came with the box and papers. Its chambered in 40S&W. The Mauser M2 was built by Sigarms in the USA. Production started in 2001 and didn't continue very long. It uses a rotating locking barrel. What's interesting is the rear slide mounted safety, much like the HK P30. Like the Hi-Power, it can not be fired without the magazine in place. The M2 is a striker-fired pistol. Another interesting aspect of the M2 is the calibers it was chambered for. It came in 40S&W like this one, 357 Sig, and 45ACP. It was never chambered for 9mm. The Mauser M2 is a compact sized, aluminum alloy framed pistol. Its not exactly pretty, but the Mauser logo looks great on a firearm, doesn't it? Anybody else have one? http://world.guns.ru/handguns/hg/de/mauser-m2-e.html Enjoy the pics Wanna kill these ads?
