  1. 1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    Hello, I recently got my hands on a C96 “Red 9” in excellent condition. I have been trying to find out more about the unit markings. Someone at thehighroad recommended this site to me. For the record, all parts are matching (including the grips), and there is a crowned eagle on the front of the...

    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...
  3. 1900-1918 : German (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters
    I recently purchased a c96 with the marking "P.L.2.18" on the front grip. The serial number is 124xxx, it is in 7.63mm, and it has a 1920 rework stamp but does not appear to have been reworked (barrel not cut). I'm trying to figure out what "P.L.2.18" represents. The combination of letters...

    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...

    I just inherited 8 Mausers which most are definitely Chinese copies but I am having an issue identifying what exactly I have. I can send pictures. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

    Hi, I've located an Austrian Contract C96 for sale. It is numbered in all correct locations to the S/N. It has the German military & Austrian acceptance marks on the two flats right of chamber. S/N 363xxx. The C96 has at least 95% original blue. It is tight & functions normally. No abuse...

    I purchased a Wolff spring kit for a C96 Mauser. The instructions declared that the firing pin spring must be fitted (trimmed to proper length) before final installation. No instructions were given as to the final length measurement of the spring. Will someone please advise how to arrive at this...

    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. My two guns appear to feed bullets as intended, so why do you suppose they were not milled to include...

  10. German: German Mfg. (non-P08) Pistols & Holsters.
    Hello all. I have before me a C96 that appears to be an M30 "transitional" variant in the 755xxx serial range. The numbers appear to match on everything except the bolt stop so the pre-M30 lock mechanism appears (in my humble non-expert opinion) to be original to the lower receiver. Assembled...
