C96 possibly for sale
« on: July 11, 2023, 04:30:59 PM »
Newbie and first time posting - I recently came across a Broomhandle C96 w / serial number 175853 all matching to include handle and wood buttstock holster.  Gun seems to be in really good shape but not sure on value.  I've done some research and have some ideas but I know value depends on a lot of  different variables.  Any direction or help would be appreciated.

The C96 is a Pre-war commercial. It looks good from what I can see in the 3 pictures. Values on these have gone crazy of late. If all matching similar examples are being priced in the $2500-3000+ range. Is the stock matching? I would need to see a lot more to accurately evaluate value. Regards,

With a matching stock it is at the high end or $3000-3500 (high retail value) Regards,
