C96 "Cherub" Grips
« on: January 08, 2023, 04:11:13 PM »
I have a pair of black grips for a Mauser C96 pistol which depict a Cherub, armed with a C96 and dagger, slaying a lion. They are made from a very hard form of plastic. They aren't Bakelite or rubber and bear no serial number. I'm in the U.K, and got them with a deactivated Schnellfeuer Pistole. I have since replaced them for a more accurate wooden pair. I would like to ask the members here if they are familiar with this type of grip? I am lead to believe that they are not standard, and Mauser never manufactured such grips, despite several pistols on the internet featuring this type. Do any other member have a similar grip? What are their thoughts as to their origin and originality? Thank you in advance.
