Mauser Parabellum Gauges.

When   Mauser   decided   to   reintroduce   the   Mauser   Parabellum,   it   was   decided   to   take   a   shortcut   and   base   the   new   production   on   the   drawings   and tooling of the Swiss Waffenfabrik of Bern. The   Swiss   Waffenfabrik   Bern   had   been   manufacturing   their   own   Parabellum   pistols   in   the   past   when   DWM,   as   a   result   of   the   First   World   War   and   the limitations   set   by   the   Allied   Control   Commission,   could   no   longer   provide   the   Swiss   army   with   Parabellum   pistols.   Switzerland   decided   to   set   up   its own   production   line   and   they   produced   several   variations   of   the   Parabellum,   including   the   most   cost-effective   version,   the   06/29   (1906   model   of 1929)   until   1949   when   the   Swiss   Parabellum   production   came   to   an   end   after   the   acceptance   of   a   new   Swiss   army   pistol   chambered   for   the   9x19 Parabellum round, the model 1949, better known as the SIG P210.   Mauser   representatives   visited   the   Swiss   Eidgn.   Waffenfabrik   in   Bern   and   negotiations   began.   On   the   24th   of   October   1967,   Mr.   Adam   and   Mr.   Kerlie reported   to   the   management   that   the   Swiss   had   a   full   set   of   control   gauges   available,   the   master   set   for   which   was   kept   at   the   factory   and   had   not been used for actual testing. The other set was some 80–90% complete but had been used. Mauser   eventually   bought   the   following   equipment   from   Waffenfabrik   Bern   and   paid   a   little   over   259,000-   DM   (240,000   Swiss   Francs,   some   $60.000) for it. For that amount, Mauser received: 1. One copy of the entire 1929 production package: blueprints, parts drawings, work sheets, tolerance calculations and so on 2. Two examples of each inspection gauge necessary for inspecting every dimension of every part in the gun 3. About  30% of the necessary jigs 4. All the blueprints and calculations Bern made in 1960 when considering a redesign of the M1929 5. Three complete pistols, one German ’06 model, one 06-24 Swiss model and one M1929 In   the   end,   Mauser   used   part   of   the   Swiss   gauges   but   it   was   also   necessary   to   produce   internally   some   additional   gauges.   Below   some   pictures   of   the gauges used by Mauser, some of them are from the Swiss Waffenfabrik of Bern some others built new by Mauser.
