  1. WTB/WTT for Luger/C96, possibly wartime P38

    Want to Buy Trader
    Looking for a Luger or C96 in serviceable condition, perhaps a wartime P38. No parameters in regards to condition, markings or numbering, but it should be functional and mostly free of rust. Rifling would be nice too! I plan on shooting it moderately so no collector's pieces needed. I've got a...
  2. Red 9 Broomhandle Opinion

    1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    Friends - I need your input on this broomhandle. These are all the pictures I have and I know they aren't perfect. Do you have any concerns or reservations from what you see? The biggest thing that jumps out at me is that this is nowhere near the 24 grooves it should have. I believe I counted...

    Hi, I have two Red 9 Broomhandles w/sn's 72xxx & 20xx. Neither have a machined cut for 9mm cartridges in the follower. I've seen photos of followers with this cut but can't imagine its purpose.

  6. Broomhandle problems...

    1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    Hey everyone, I've been trying to figure this out for some time now with no luck... I just took my broomhandle out to the range and have had some sort of failure and can't get the gun to disassemble.
