The Mauser C96 was very popular in China, with numerous copies made in-country. One of the more interesting developments was the decision to scale up the gun to .45 ACP so it could share ammo with the also domestically-produced Thompson clones. Made in the initial run, both side of frame marked with Chinese characters, left indicating model and right indicate manufacturer and date (looks to be Republic 19). Matching full or partial numbers observed on left side of chamber, underside of rear sight, top of bolt carrier (firing pin mismatched), locking lug, lock frame stop, sear, sear spring/hammer pivot, rear of hammer, trigger, frame, and subframe. Barleycorn front sight, V notch adjustable rear sight graduated to 1000 meters. Smooth grips with single retaining screw through central escutcheon. Frame cut for stock lug. Lanyard loop on non-rotatable stud. Oversized stock/holster of appropriate proportions to take the oversized frame, unnumbered on the iron. CONDITION: Essentially a smooth chocolate patina throughout, with some rubs to dove grey at high edges.Areas of pitting scattered about. Grips don't fit quite right. Safety is loose. Mechanically fine, bore with visible, very softened rifling, and frosting throughout. Stock is good as sanded and varnished with numerous handling marks and dings, primarily to front near lug.
