This weekend I saw a Hi-Power with a slide that said "Mauser Werke" (and some other words that I can't recall). What's up with a Mauser Hi-Power? The finish and workmanship looked really super -- too good for a WWII Nazi piece?
It's probably one of those modern Mauser Hi-Power clones. They made a single action and a double action version - I think it was called the model 90(?) - possibly made with unlicensed-copy Hungarian (FEG) parts. They were in the gun catalogues for awhile, then dissappeared, several years ago.
However, based on Mauser's reputation alone, I think if I saw one (the single action version of course) at the right price I don't think I would pass it up.
I would bet that Mauser had some very competent people QC check, and where necessary, "fit" individual parts before finishing and shipping them. It is based on that assumption that I for one wouldn't pass one up at the right price.
Mauser had them on display at a Shot Show Years ago. They are very well made guns. I have an FEG and have no complaints and find all parts interchange with BHP and the darned thing shoots like a dream with cheap high cap mags. I find no reason to own a gun with "Browning" stamped on it for $300 or more for the honor. Mauser also had a model in .30 Masuer, not sure it it made it to market.
