Want to buy a C96 Type 1 safety for a early Cone Hammer. Im pretty sure the Large Ring Hammer guns used the same safety.
Any help or leads is appreciated.
Regards
Bob

"chipped here" is repairable. This thing is numbered to the gun, a spare one costs probably 200. If numbering is important, repair it probably costs 300.

Here are some pictures of my safety & the chipped engagement perch. This is chipped all but flush to the main body.

I certainly would prefer to repair the numbered part as the gun is all matching save the locking block & the left grip panel.
Do you know who can do this repair? In worst case where a spare can be obtained.

Try www.pullmanarms.com.

They are welding specialists.

They would need a good lever as reference, then, build up that broken lug via micro welding.

Since this broken one was refinished in the past, there is no finish to preserve, they could do proper heat treatment after repairing. The end result will be very strong.

Alvin, Thanks for the reference. Ill reach out to them only the needed reference lever will probably be an issue.
They are closed until mid March so Ill wait to hear back. While I was typing this they returned my call & asked I get back to them later in May.
Regards
Bob

I've got a first type safety. Mine was broken off at the point where it becomes visible at the frame but Johann Basanoski did a magnficient job on restoring it. I wanted to keep it as it had the original serial number. I then purchased one that I assume is also original as a back up. I am interested in selling the lever as Johann's fix seem rugged and permanent but I am more interested in divesting myself of the entire lot as I have reached an age were owning stuff is becoming a burden. My Broomhandle is one of six known (found my me) of the type shown on page 98-99 of system Mauser with the scalloped slider and long groove in the sight. Mine is I think is the third or fourth made of this series which numbered I think around 300 or so before Mauser ran out of large ring hammer parts. Still used the first type safety in a Bolo frame. If you have a conehammer you might know of someone who might be interested.

I would definitely like to purchase your spare safety lever if you really want to sell it. please contact me about it.
Thanks

Hello hoodoo, Could you help me locate Johann Basanoski ? Perhaps he can repair my existing part if your not wanting to part with your spare.
Much appreciated.

I´m wondering, how did somebody manage to break the "chipped here" area?
I have seen this failure on conehammers two times (this subject one, and one fixed sight). Mauser used the best steel available, but that was1898.. the best was in that big context.

I acquired the gun with this condition & have been searching for a replacement since then, 2018.

I can only see one explanation: someone dropped the gun, while safety was on and it fell on the hammer.

Maybe if it was an a carpet but this gun shows no indication of being dropped anywhere. When I found this gun it wasn't working because someone had assembled it wrong. Perhaps a heavy hand didn't understand the keying process & forced the safety? Hard to say at this point only that a otherwise very nice C96 is crying out for this part.

Johann I can say with certainty that there has been no welding done to the hammer. Having spent most of my life in the trades & have done a lot of welding in my day.
Im curious what gave you that impression?
Heres a second thought, I had this gun re done to rust blue & a lot of cosmetic work done to the overall gun. When the gun came back I noticed some scratches on the hammer that were not there when I sent the gun off & complained about it. Could be some damage came to it while the other work was done & some repair unknown to me done??? The surface metal looks the same all over the hammer so I never considered that welding could have been done on it until your comment just now.
