MAUSER C96, POST WAR REWORK WITH LUGER STYLE FRONT SIGHT. MAUSER C96 288914 7.63MM MODERN; C&R; IMPORT Cal. 7.63mm. Wartime Standard Commercial pistol that was reworked to meet the Treaty of Versailles, property marked "1920" and later refinished by Mauser in the 1930s. This pistol has a 4" bbl with a sleeved front sight whose base and attendant bbl band are reminiscent of a Luger. Slip-in 50-1000 rear sight and 2-lug firing pin. The top half of the pistol, including the bolt, is matched to "226140". Standard Mauser address over the chamber and "226140" marked on left chamber flat. Left side of the bbl extension marked with crown/crown/U along with the "1920" property stamp. The hammer, subframe and frame are matched to the primary SN "288914". The bolt stop is numbered "807" and each of the broadly serrated grips, as used for the M1930 Commercials, is numbered "122". Congealed grease precluded internal examination. No lanyard ring. PROVENANCE: Ex Visser Collection. Collection of Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess. CONDITION: Approx 70-80% salt blue with sharp edge wear and considerable freckling from poor storage. As typical for Mauser's 1930-era reworks, all small parts, that may have been orig fire blued or strawed, now salt blued and in comparable condition. The same consideration holds for the grips that are oil stained and have numerous handling marks. Mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. A very interesting Mauser rework from the 1930s having a melange of different features. 43475-83 LMA (1,000-2,000)
