My old man picked up this Mauser HSc .380 over 30 years ago. He loves the gun, but recently the trigger pin sheared in half and he has had trouble replacing it. Twice he has ordered from online parts dealers only to receive a pin too narrow or long despite the part being listed as a Mauser HSc specific trigger pin.

Does anyone have experience with repairing an old Mauser pistol like this?

I read that the HSc was made during 3 different periods. Would the trigger pin be different for those different production runs?

As always, any help or info is appreciated!

Sorry I didn't get one with the slide closed, you'll have to use your imagination!

Have you talked to a gunsmith about shortening the pin that is too long?

That seems like a part that would be relatively easy for a gunsmith to modify, or a machinist to manufacture.

I'll have to check with him, but I think the long one was both too long and narrow.

+1 if its too long it should not be hard for any person with a set of calipers and a file.

A cheap alternative would be a role pin that you can get at any hardware store. By using a second smaller roll pin inside the first roll pin you have just a rock soiled cheap solution. I know CZ uses this method.
