The Falcone crime family ships this pistol into Empire Bay in the early 1950's.
Harry's Shop (Gunstore) has these available from chapter 8.
- When buying the gun from Harry's Shop, the gun reads .45 ammo when buying ammo. This is either a mistake made when programming the gun, or this is the Chinese Variant of the Mauser.
- In Stairway to Heaven some of Derek's men will use this weapon to attack Vito.
- In Joe's Adventures mission Saving Marty, some Bombers will attack you with this weapon.
- The bartender at the Hill of Tara wields this gun after he has run out of ammo on his MP40.
- The in-game animation shows Vito reloading the weapon from below without the use of stripper clips, despite the fact the real-world weapon used stripper clips and actually reloaded from above. This inaccuracy is probably because a realistic reload would have required a unique animation modelled and programmed just for this gun. However, there were some later Mauser variants (specifically the select fire model) that used a detachable magazine reloaded from below.
