The Sig Sauer/ Mauser M2 Is imported by Sig Sauer and only comes in .40S&W, .45ACP, & .357SIG. And thats about all the info I could find as of now. Anyone care to add to this?
Mauser, the oldest name in semi-automatic pistols, is proud to introduce a pistol designed for personal protection for home defense or as a concealed carry for the private citizen at an affordable price.
The M2 by Mauser could arguably be called "the safest handgun on the market today". Several safety features are integrated into the M2's design. The pistol features a loaded chamber indicator on top of the slide, which provides a visual indication that a round is present in the firing chamber. The pistol's magazine disconnect is designed to prevent the pistol from being fired with the magazine removed from the pistol, even if a live round remains in the chamber. The pistol is equipped with an automatic firing pin safety that will not release the firing pin unless the trigger has been pulled. A disconnector prevents out of battery firing. The double-action only fire control system (in conjunction with the striker firing system) holds the striker at half cock which will not fire the cartridge should it be accidentally released. The manual external safety, located on the back of the slide, allows the owner to quickly observe if the handgun in is the safe mode while in the holster and can be quickly operated with the shooting hand.
Mauser M2 pistols are modern semi-automatic handguns complying with the latest technical advances in firearms design. They operate on the principle of mechanically half-cocked recoil loading with semiautomatic reloading. The manual safety catch, magazine catch and automatic firing pin ensure safe carrying of the pistol. After every shot the firing pin is automatically half-cocked and completely safe. The distinctive contrast sights in conjunction with the ergonomically favorable grip design permits rapid, precision target acquisition and firing.
Mauser M2 Technical Specifications:
Mechanical rotary-action bolt; Striker-fired (no hammer); Double-action only semiautomatic pistol; loaded chamber indicator, magazine safety disconnect, manual safety, available in .45 ACP, & .40 S&W calibers.
Each Mauser M2 pistol comes complete with green plastic hard carry case, trigger lock & 2 magazines.
The Mauser M2 is imported and distributed in North America exclusively by SIGARMS.
Sig Mauser M2 .45 Function Issues

.If you have one of these guns and need some advice on how to make it cycle reliably, I have done so with mine. Curing the glitches that made this gun only last one or two years of production. Just not enough fine tuning and attention to detail, before they let them out on the market. As they were, you couldn't trust them. When working properly they are superbly accurate and reliable. Nothing a man can't fix with simple home tools. But you must have the ability to dismantle the striker assembly from the slide and not lose the tiny parts, especially the really small rebound sleeve cross pin. Lose anything and you may not be able to get a replacement. If anyone has this gun and feels capable, I will walk you through it.
The rotating barrel locking system lets the barrel rotate in place, always with the same axis in relation to the sights, since it does not tilt. This prevents vertical stringing from a slightly different lockup each round. This gun puts em right where the sights were looking when the gun went bang. Every time.
Let me know if I can help. .
Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia!

.I won a Mauser M2 at a Friends of the NRA banquet several years ago. After a few hundred rounds I began getting "light strikes" on primers. (clearly dimpled primer but no BANG) At first this only occured with CCI ammo. A few hundred rounds later it began to happen with Winchester white box too. I took it to a local gunsmith who kept it for a month or more and said he'd never seen anything like it. "Couldn't fing a hammer spring for it in any of my catalogues." I brought the owner's manual to him and asked what spring(s) needed to be replaced. He suggested two but had contacted Sig and was told that they had no replacement parts for the M-2 and didn't know where any could be found. (He gave me the print out of the message from Sig) I got the two springs from Numrich and had a retired NYSDOC armorer install them. He tested the pistol with Magtech ammo and experienced no problems. A few weeks later, I took the M-2 to the range, loaded it with Winchester White box and it went BANG, BANG, click. Racked the slide, click. Racked the slide, click. I took the "duds", loaded them into my Llama Max I and they all preformed flawlessly. Any suggestions?
I have one of these guns and need to know what I need to do to make it fire. I have had this gun broke down several times and can't figure out why it is light striking the primer. .
