MAUSER C96 SMALL RING HAMMER CARBINE, 9MM EXPORT, WITH INTERNAL FLOORPLATE RELEASE. MAUSER C96 CARBINE 1018 9MM MAUSER Cal. 9mm Export. This was the final form of Mauser's standard production carbine. About 100 of these guns were assembled with most examples in the serial range 945-1050. Of these, relatively few were chambered for the 9mm Export. This carbine has a 15-3/4″ bbl, dovetailed bead front sight, short extractor, a slip-in 50-500 rear sight with a full center line, a standard cursor, grooved follower, 2-lug firing pin, small ring hammer, and an internal (inside trigger guard) floorplate release. Usual Mauser address on top of the chamber; full SN is on left chamber flat and repeated on left rear frame and over the push button on the shoulder stock iron. The matching number is on the bolt stop, bolt, hammer, sub-frame and floorplate. Two-line Mauser address is on right side of frame. Smooth forearm and buttstock each fitted with orig sling swivel. Orig buttplate, with Mauser Werke logo within central shield, secured with two screws. PROVENANCE: The Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin Collection - Germany. CONDITION: Small Ring Carbine with 80-85% rust blue showing areas of touch-up, particularly over the frame, and broadly scattered flecks and patches of oxidation, especially over the chamber and on both arms of the attaching iron. Fire blued small parts retain about 50-70% orig finish, that equally applies to the straw on the trigger. Forend and buttstock retain much of their orig finish though areas near metal contact are oil darkened and all surfaces have a scattering of handling dings and nicks. Forearm has two very barely discernible cracks at rear, left side, adjacent to rail. Bright bore with strong rifling, mild oxidation. Perfect manual mechanics. Overall, a very nice Mauser carbine, one of the last to be made, in a scarce caliber with an unusual and desirable floorplate release. 49828-33 LMA (15,000-22,500)
