Now let's take a look at an upcoming weapon that will join the Italian Front soon.

A new Mauser joins the battle!

Made by the famous Mauser company the Model 1914 is a .32 ACP blowback defensive pistol. It was an improved model of the previous Model 1910 pistol designed by Josef Nickl. The pistol is small, handy, and modern. Though the blowback design was not suited for 9mm parabellum, the .32 was popular in Europe at the time.

Nickl and the Mauser company had envisioned a family of pistols based upon the Model 1910. These pistols would utilize uniform features, something that could be considered quite modern for this point in history. The original 1910 pistol used a weak .25 cartridge; not well suited to military use, but was popular on the private market. The Model 1914 .32 pistol was developed with the .32 cartridge used as a sort of stopgap between further 9mm trials. However it was quickly found to be more than suited to police and indeed military use.

Many pistols during World War One were pressed into service for front line use; to plug any gaps which freed up the Luger P08 pistols for where they were needed. The pistol was easy to use and generally liked by the troops. The 8 round magazine was a reasonable capacity for the period, and while the .32 cartridge might be considered insufficient in today’s conflicts, it still did its job.

Extremely handy and easy to maintain, this relatively obscure pistol would make its way to most fronts during the Great War and continued on during World War Two.
