Product Description

Commercial “ broomhandle “ Mauser C96 in 7.63 x 25MM with shoulders stock with beautiful Mauser banner logo stamped on one side. See photos, as well as other I am selling from one gentlemen‘s collection. These are excellent examples.

The Mauser C96 (Construktion 96)[6] is a semi-automatic pistol that was originally produced by German arms manufacturer Mauser from 1896 to 1937. Unlicensed copies of the gun were also manufactured in Spain and China in the first half of the 20th century. This one is a Germany made one from 1910 time period.

The distinctive characteristics of the C96 are the integral box magazine in front of the trigger, the long barrel, the wooden shoulder stock which gives it the stability of a short-barreled rifle and doubles as a holster or carrying case, and an iconic grip shaped like the handle of a broom. The grip earned the gun the nickname "broomhandle" in the English-speaking world, because of its round wooden handle, and in China the C96 was nicknamed the "box cannon" (Chinese盒子炮pinyinhézipào) because of its rectangular internal magazine and the fact that it could be holstered in its wooden box-like detachable stock. Most of above is from Wikipedia 

And yes Star Wars fans, this is the infamous blaster that Hans Solo carried in Star Wars.  May the force be with you!
