    Default Disassembling Mauser 1914 7.65mm

    I recently bought this pistol for a good price as it was missing the firing pin. I located a pin & spring and am trying to install. I removed the takedown rod which allows for the barrel to be removed and then the slide. I could not get the firing pin & spring to seat so I wanted to put the gun back together a bit before trying again later. I placed the slide back onto the frame and now it seems locked and will not move with the magazine in or out. Can one of you help me?

    Thanks.

    I've actually watched both of those videos before. If you are suggesting that I remove the group to get to the internals, will I need to get to the ejector & hold open catch or will removing the mag catch free up the slide?

    Thanks again.

The instructor said NOBODY could explain just how and why it worked, except the designer. Who became insane and unable to explain things. But it did work...

    If I remember correctly, you are right - removing the mag catch spring (the top of which I think presses against the ejector/hold open thing) may release your slide. Also, a worn magazine lip may not be pushing the hold open far enough to release the slide. Since you most likely have a gap between mag catch and mag floorplate, if this is your problem you can try using a floorplate "spacer" to push the mag up a bit. You can cut a small strip of metal from, say, a beer can, fold it and insert at the back of the mag floorplate.
