C96 MAUSER BANNER BOLO, LATE TRANSITIONAL, CHINESE CHARACTERS, WITH STOCK. MAUSER C-96 BOLO 771259 30 MAUSER MODERN; C&R Cal. 7.63mm. Late Mauser Banner Bolo with 4" bbl, fixed front sight 50-1000 slip-in rear sight. Usual chamber address. Crown/crown/U on left chamber flat with full SN appearing on left side of bbl extension. Left side of frame is marked with three Chinese characters near bottom of magazine well that translate "Made in Germany". The Mauser banner logo is centered in the rear panel. Standard 2-line Mauser address on right frame. Full SN on back of the frame in usual location. Disassembly shows an unnumbered follower (correct for this variation) and matching floorplate. The hammer and subframe have been accepted but are unnumbered. Sear and transfer bar are unmarked. Universal safety. Wood serrated panels, each marked with small digits with full SN. Lanyard ring is a replacement. Accompanied by a full size Mauser Banner stock as issued for the M1930 Commercials. Lug numbered "259" is a forced, non-factory match. Hinge missing single screw and escutcheon. CONDITION: Bright 99% reworked rust blue with old congealed grease in protected areas. Although the work is superb, probably effected by Mauser, there are no proud edges around crown/crown/U proofing and the Chinese characters are shallow. Few small scratches under bbl and numerous nicks & scratches inside trigger guard. Faded extractor, now a plum color, appears as a later replacement. Fire blue on rear sight components, bolt stop and trigger are about 80%. Comparable condition salt blue on universal safety. Grips retain most orig varnish with light handling marks. VG Mauser Banner stock with mild discoloration and scattering of dents. 5-1/2" hairline crack along lower spine. Most of fire blue from lug & hinge have toned to a mottled brown. Bright bore with strong rifling. Excellent manual mechanics. An interesting, late transitional Bolo rig that presents very nicely. 49432-68 LMA (3,000-4,000)
