C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Re: Replica mauser Carabine
« on: December 13, 2018, 07:31:28 AM »
It seems that you are aware that these were made from Chinese exports. The importers would use the examples with badly rusted grip frames to  create these "carbines". The workmanship varies mainly because of the condition of the example being converted. They are easy to spot as they do not have correct carbine features but they are affordable substitutes for a collector and can be fired without the concerns of damaging a rare original example. The hammer on the example shown appears to have been modified to resemble a Conehammer. All created carbines had 16" barrel to be legal in the US.

Hello Fred,

Welcome to the forum!

Hello Craig and welcome to the forum. The S.Me. marking is Schutzpolizei Merseburg (Protection Police, Merseburg district) according to "History written in Steel by Don Maus". The other small markings you describe are most likely inspector or production markings indicating passing tolerance or station the part was machined on. The serial numbering is typical of examples of the period.

Hopefully you will be able to find the parts you are looking for. You mentioned barrel bands. The .32/7.65mm pistols did not have them. They only appear on .25/6.35mm examples. The barrel should have a ramped sight. If it has a half round sight it was most likely replaced.

Model HSC Pistol / Re: Mauser 7.65 HSc pistol

7.65mm = .32 APC caliber / Meteric vs English. It is the same round and can be found most places where ammunition is sold.

I would need to see more pictures from other views to give an estimate with confidence but assuming it looks like this all over $1500 is about what it should sell for. It is one of the 5 most common variations and shows wear to finish.

Drarin,

The one picture is not enough to access actual value. The magazine is an after market addition. Without knowing if the serial numbers match, except the bottom of the magazine well (which is not shown as the detachable replaces it) and the other sides of the stock and pistol, the most I would pay is about $1200. There are just to many unknowns to know if its worth more.

There are a few possibilities, a Chinese version that was made up from Schnellfeuer parts, a M714 which is an uncommon variation of a M1930 model with a detachable magazine or a full-auto Schnellfeuer. If it is full-auto it will have a button and switch on the left side to set semi or full auto function. These have to be REGISTERED TO BE LEGAL. One other possibility is a Federal Ordinance re-manufactured import that was modified to use a detachable magazine. These are the most likely possibilities. I have included a link below which may help. Regards,

WTP / Re: Post WW II, French WTP

Vilm,
Very nice and great condition. I have heard some great stories about the French WTP IIs. It seem that about half returned to the US while the other half remained in Europe. They, like the French HSCs have some unique variations but not as many as the HSCs. Congratulations on your acquisition.

Bill,

The condition of the example and determining if it is matching or in original condition will dictate value. If this is currently listed on GunBroker and you are not receiving bids you may have an idea that your valuation is too high.

308223,

This isn't an appraisal site but I would be able to give you an estimate if you can post a few pictures. I need to see what kind of condition it is in and close up images of markings particularly the serial numbered parts to confirm that it is matching. Condition, originality and matching numbers are the keys to value.

Hi Mausman,

Welcome to the forum. Do you have a price for the postcards?

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Re: How to identify real stocks from repros?
« on: October 10, 2018, 07:27:20 AM »
cgu,

All the things you have listed are ways to spot reproduction stocks, like the one shown. It helps to have held some genuine stocks to know what they look and feel like but listing what is correct would be shorter than listing things to look for. This is a good guide to stocks and which is correct for a particular variation.

Hammer,

Welcome to the forum. If you want to sell items there is a section below to post them. Please include a price and terms like where you will or will not ship to, if you are a FFL holder or will be transferring via a licensed dealer and a complete description of the items being offered. Since you are a new member I would recommend an on line auction like GunBroker.com over a sale here.

Regards,

I am going to assume the condition is very good because you described the fire blue on the trigger as being bright but to be accurate with value I would need to see the condition. $450 is the high retail value these seem to be selling for.

I need to confirm that you have a .32 caliber model? If it is? it is what I call an Early Production variation, serial number 3000-13500. If its a .25 it would be a Sidelatch model. Both are rarer than your average pocket model but the are not appreciated as such in the market place and usually do not demand higher prices than more common variations.

Regards,
