"This is the largest contiguous serial number range for any variant of the Model 1910, and as a result we refer to it as the Standard Model. Pender refers to it as the “post-war commercial model”. This variant was made from approximately 1921 through 1928. The primary external changes are a stepped grip frame, a redesigned magazine release, new slide serrations, and a new slide inscription on the left side in all capital sans-serif italic characters as follows.
WAFFENFABRIK MAUSER A.-G. OBERNDORF A.N.
Most side plates have the Mauser powder barrel logo centered on them, but we continue to see intermittent side plates that are blank. Slightly larger logos are also found, probably indicating that a new roll stamp had been cut.
The magazine release is redesigned to reduce costs and speed manufacture--the flat steel is formed into a curved release and then tempered, so that the spring and the release are contiguous. No milling is necessary--this is referred to as a stamped release.
A new style of slide serrations appears: seven broad flat-bottomed plunge-milled serrations.
Production of other parts is simplified in this period. The safety lever is stamped instead of milled . The shallow pin on the back of the disconnector lever is eliminated, so this part also can be stamped. A minor change is made to the frame to accommodate the redesigned disconnector.
Front plates on the barrel pin vary between smooth-faced and “button-faced” (i.e., with the pin protruding through the plate, some with grooved sides and some without.
Beginning around serial number 239000 a right side slide legend appears in sans-serif italic characters as follows:
Mauser - 6,35
Beginning around serial number 256100 round half-moon front sights begin to appear again. Some have barrel bands and some do not.
The guns continue to have a rust blue finish. The trigger, barrel retaining rod, extractor, and grip screws are nitrate or fire blued. The grip is either checkered wood or hard rubber with a WM monogram. The magazines bodies have a bright “in the white” finish with three vertical slots in the left side. The magazine base has a square front with an indent in lower serial numbers and a notched base in higher serial numbers. The notch in the base allows the magazine spring to retain the base on the magazine tube. Magazine bottoms are finished in a nitrate blue. Some magazines are marked with the Mauser banner, either acid etched, or stamped on the tube or the base."
