This is a wartime manufactured Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" pistol in .30 Mauser. It retains about 90% of the original blue finish with nice visible "fire blue" on the trigger, sight adjuster and extractor. The finish shows some minor wear on the front and rear grip straps as well as the high profile areas, with some minor wear on the underside of the barrel as well. The original Walnut grips are the proper 34 groove grips for a wartime and pre-war C96 Commercial Models and are both serial numbered to the gun. This pistol is 100% original and all-matching. The 5.5" barrel has a fixed front sight and 1000 meter adjustable tangent rear sight. The bore in this Mauser is bright with strong rifling. Standard Mauser Oberndorf markings on top of chamber and right side of frame. Crown/U proofed with Kingdom of Württemberg wartime acceptance proof on the right side of the barrel. Even though this iconic pistol was never formally adopted by any military, many wartime model C96's were purchased by the German military during World War One and used for the duration of WW1. The C96 Broomhandle was praised by German and British officers alike, including Sir Winston Churchill, and have been in various military armories from Europe to the far East. This is a fantasic piece of firearms history and would make a great addition to any collection.
