My, my, it does get around. It is good to know who you can trust and perhaps better to know who you cannot.

Ok, Well I have started a thread on Stills forum about the marking. I have some doubts about it being genuine. I also spoke to the dealer who sold the pistol to the current dealer. The original pistol showed wear on the sideplate. So, I think shenanigans could be a very nice description of what is going on. Buyer beware!

Val, Did the grips change from plain to DR(Railway) marked and then were they changed back? These "DR" marked grip is something that has recently turned up. I saw an example of them a year or two ago on another dealers site then another one, or the same one, turned up on Pre98's site. It is curious to me that it had not shown up before. I am also curious as to province of the marking as it is unique as a marking as far as I know. It is a very large mark burned into the grip which is unusual.

Regards,

Val, Great catch. I have found dealers to be dealers. They are out to make a buck and some are willing to commit fraud to do it. It seems that there is little repercussion to fleecing buyers and there are some buyers who are in it for profit and not because they have an interest in history or what they collect. To them it is an alternative stock market and they trust dealers because they are not familiar with what they are buying. Sometimes, when confronted with the truth these investors will not accept that there example has been boosted preferring to believe what their dealer told them. This is a facet of collectable firearms that is rarely brought to light or discussed which helps to perpetuate it.

This example was recently acquired but due to its loss of finish I decided to have the finish restored. It is import marked and though most of the bluing was absent there was no pitting except under the grip. The grips are reproduction but the correct type for this example. The marking in the 4th image is a character followed by 4 digits. If anyone can identify this marking I would greatly appreciate it. I believe it to be a police mark from Asia.

Thank you for posting this excellent presentation of your Austrian C96. It is a very nice example. Congratulations!

The data I have places the year of manufacture as 1916. It would have been early in the year.

tm711, Please pardon my misidentification. It just goes to show you that, even with pictures you can't see all. The 3 digit number with no other markings should of been a clue that it could be Chinese. It appears it was well made and as I recall the Taku arsenal copies where one of the better Chinese copies. Other than that I cannot be very helpful. Chinese copies are a study by themselves and I have not taken that class.

Yes, 1910 is usually used to describe the .25 caliber variations. 107442 is a 1910/14 new model and should have numbered internal parts as you describe.

What is the serial number? and are we discussing a .25 or .32 caliber example? The earlier variations had more of the internal parts numbered than the later models.
