MAUSER / GERMANY

Like many armaments factories the MAUSER Werke AG had to turn to new products after WWI.
They started with a very unusual car, called Einspurwagen ( single lane car ).
It was a three seater with two passengers behind the driver and two small retractable wheels at the side for starting and stopping ( what a crazy idea ). This car had  no emblem. From 1927 to 1929 the WINKLER Company of  Oberndorf  produced the single trace car in licence. Now there was an emblem:

In 1923 MAUSER brought out a conventional 4 - wheeled car with 4 brakes and a 4-cylinder engine but it was sold in small numbers only.

In four years there were two slightly different emblems. Instead of the target circle here you see the ironsight of a pistol ( made by Mauser ):
