Thanks Henry

Hi Henry..  thanks for your reply.If it looks OK, I will certainly take it....  I have bought 2 previously, but they turned out to be glorified keyrings  :( :(

A pic would be great when you get it...

Again, thanks for your help


C96 / C12 Broomhandle / C96 Lanyard Ring --- Desperately seeking one
« on: June 03, 2021, 10:18:26 AM »
Hi folks,
I have an 1899 Large Ring Transitional C96, with all matching numbers.Unfortunately it is missing the lanyard ring. I have tried to purchase one, but it turned out to be a glorified key ring, not a real lanyard ring.

I am looking to purchase either an original, or a good copy... I have searched everywhere but with no luck.

I am located in Australia, but I should imagine that posting this item would not be a problem, no matter what the source location was (maybe USA?)Any ideas where I can hunt one down to complete this magnificent firearm?

The lanyard ring is like a keyring, though more substantial. You should just be able to open it a little and slide it on, similar to a keyring.Now for MY 64 million dollar question!!!!   I am looking for one of these myself....  can I ask where you got yours from?

Hi folks,does anyone have any ideas on this one, or where I could start looking?thanks, Mike

 Hi folks,
 I am trying to track down these stamps, which are below the Mauser serial number on the backstrap. They look to be of the same vintage, but not a Mauser factory stamp (I don't think)....
 I first thought these numbers were stock serial numbers from John Rigby & Co, the English retailer, but now believe that that's not the case.
 Now I think they might be from a 'Jaeger Regiment' quartermaster, but no idea other than that.
 Any thoughts out there....  or has someone got a C96 with similar markings?
