THIS GUN WAS COMPLETELY AND PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED (INCLUDING RUST-BLUING, FIRE-BLUING AND STRAWING) BY A RETIRED GERMAN GUNSMITH WHO HAD PREVIOUSLY WORKED AT MAUSER.  

AFTER RETIRING, THIS GUNSMITH THEN WORKED FULL-TIME, PROFESSIONALLY RESTORING GERMAN, SPANISH AND CHINESE BROOMHANDLES FOR ONE PRIVATE CLIENT COLLECTOR.

THIS GUN WAS OBTAINED DIRECTLY FROM THE PERSONAL COLLECTION OF THAT COLLECTOR, WHO WAS THE MAN  RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPORTING THIS GUN AND MANY OTHER THOUSANDS OF MILITARY WEAPONS FROM EUROPE AND CHINA DURING THE 1970'S & 1980'S.  

THIS MAN HAD ONE OF THE FINEST MILITARY COLLECTIONS IN THE UNITED STATES.  
THIS GUN WAS PART OF THAT COLLECTION.

MANY OF THE GUNS FEATURED IN JOE SCHROEDER'S  MAUSER BROOMHANDLE BOOKS WERE LENT TO JOE BY MY COLLECTOR FRIEND.

THIS PISTOL WAS SELECTED FOR RESTORATION BECAUSE OF ITS EXTREME RARITY!!!
