SN 1162. 9mm Mauser cal. 12″ bbl. This outstanding example of a high quality Swiss made submachine gun comes with three 30 round magazines. This model was made between 1933 and 1941 and all major parts on this arm appear matching with the exception being 1 screw to the rear of the magazine housing which is numbered “599”; even the wooden stock is numbered to match the rest of the gun. Marked on the top of receiver “Societe Jndustrielle Suisse/Neuhausen”. Left hand side of receiver very lightly marked, almost indiscernible, “LAUCHLI SER2 CAL 9 MOD 2/COLLINSVILLE, ILL”. This model was issued to police forces and also used by the Vatican Swiss Guard. It has the advantage of a magazine housing which will fold up into the stock with the magazine in it and this makes it convenient when getting out of vehicles or other enclosed places. Firing mechanism functions smoothly when operated by hand. This weapon appears fully functional. PROVENANCE: The class III weapons formerly on loan to Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. CONDITION: Overall finish and appearance is outstanding. Lustrous dark blue finish on all metal parts over 97% with what could be some slight corrosion near the end cap and some slight loss of finish to the high points and the screw heads. Possibly a refinish, but the numbers and letters are very clear if so. Magazine SNs do not match. Two are marked “9” for (mm Mauser and one magazine is marked “763” for that cal. All three have an attractive fire blue finish with some scuff marks and some slight loss of finish, but otherwise very attractive. Bore is shiny and bright with crisp, clean rifling. Bolt face is also excellent. This is an exceedingly finely made and highly attractive collectible submachine gun. Handy and quick to point and in a powerful cartridge. 4-51753 JWK64 (15,000-20,000) – Lot 1085
