99% C-96 never fired after proof testing
« on: December 16, 2017, 11:49:27 PM »
Well, I hope this works.  I am totally computer stupid and this forum is totally different from what I am used to. I don't know how to post pics here.  Somebody help me!!!


Three years ago, I bought a C-96 with matching wooden stock, from a man with cancer.  The pistol is very highly conditioned, 99% at least. It only has one real issue, the lanyard loop is missing.  After being examined by two experts, one at the R.I.A. Company and the other being Mr, Simpson, the Luger Expert at Simpsons Ltd in Galesburg Illinois (Who also knows a thing or two about C-96s ) both entities concluded the pistol was never fired after proofing.  The entire inside of the gun is coated with brown grease. The exterior of the gun is clean.  I want to post some pics but this forum looks totally different from my other forums.


Help me!!

Tark,

Welcome to the forum. Its very simple. Click the [reply] button, or on a new thread, below the text window you type in, there is a text box titled "Attach:" to the right of it is a [browse] button. Click the [browse] button and navigate o the drive/folder on your computer where the picture is. click/select the picture you want to post and click [open]. The path to the picture should show in the text window, now click the [post] button.

I tried to post one pic. I was told it was too big, over 1024 KB.  I don't even know what that means! How do you tell?

It is the file size of the picture. It can be re-sized on your computer or the setting changed on your camera.

But remember, I am 70 years old and totally computer stupid. I have no idea how to do what you have described.  On my other forum I can post the picture I tried to post, along with five more just like it, in a single post.

Tark,

I completely understand. Learning and keeping up with new technology is a challenge for all of us. Perhaps you know someone who knows what I mean who can help. These are fairly basic tasks for anyone who uses computers and works with images/pictures.
If you have time, just type "How to resize picture files" in the place where you type a web site address (i.e. www.mauserguns.com) and you can teach yourself. You can also try the "help" in the software you use to view your images/pictures. I hope this helps.

I give up, guys.  I cant figure out how to make the pics on my cell phone acceptable to this forum. It tells me that they are too big, but I can post them ( up to six at a time ) on other forums. If any of you are on The High Road forum, post a request for pics in the autoloading section and Ill give you all the pics you want.
