C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Large Ring Hammer Bolo

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.

Two birds in the hand? I would be very tempted to have another. The Prussian Eagle is a rare bird. I have a 1914 with one, a Red-9 with one and a 1920 rework with one. One more is always welcome.

Glad we could help!

Read here, possible the same problem, look at my picture and the comments. Or wait for the comment  from Burgess the specialist in Mausers.
Hello, geert45.  Thanks for your fast reply.  I will try removing the "Magazine Catch" bar but I have the same question that Kev Hernandez did:  Is it safe to remove it with the slide and side cover on the gun?


Also, please confirm that what your are calling the "Magazine Spring" is in fact the long flat piece on which the bottom is the "magazine catch"?  (Numrich refers to as "Magazine Catch".)


Thanks again for your suggestion and link.  But, I'll wait till you confirm the part that I should remove.  :-)


It does sound like removing the magazine catch spring could be the solution. Yes,  it is safe to remove the spring with the slide in place. Just a review. pull slide back till it locks, remove barrel retaining rod, remove barrel, insert magazine and allow slide to move forward to its rest position, pull trigger to release striker, allow slide to move slightly forward 1/4 inch and remove magazine, at this point the slide should come off the front of the frame. If not try removing the magazine catch.

Yes, some internal small parts were still numbered on the post war commercials but the numbering of small parts gradually decreased through out production.
The fire blue was not discontinued till the post 1934 variation.

I don't know of anyone who can get you the month but the data I have places the year as 1940. It should have the Eagle/N proof mark.

It is hard to tell what this was but it looks like one of the 1970's  Chinese imports that the grip frame was so badly rusted that it was made into a carbine that then someone made the stock into a pistol grip. It is far from how it looked when it left the factory.
