C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Can you help me identify this Bolo?
« on: November 06, 2021, 07:24:03 PM »

My serial is 587887. My gun has the Mauser Banner on the left side in the center of the milled square. Now, I'm wondering if it is in fact a 9mm vs other option. I just got this piece today so I'm pretty ignorant on it. In time I will learn but I've never had a Bolo before.

All the numbers I can see without disassembly match except the Bolt Stop which has a partially obliterated number which I believe is 484 on the top. It's missing the extractor which is the new style and 1.308" per the Numrich drawing. What have I got here. It came with a Repro holster and butt stock, cleaning rod, a couple 10 and strippers.

What is the best way to confirm the chambering? I appreciate any information you fellows might have.

I may need to have an extractor made for my C-96. Unless anyone knows where I can find one. So does anyone know that guy?

Hi everyone, I just purchased a Red 9 C-96 Bolo but it is missing the extractor. I've searched the web and I'm not able to find one from the obvious places Like Numeric etc. The one I need is the New Style 1.380". Does anyone know of any sources or does anyone here have one for sale? I would be happy with a new production if anyone is making them. I really appreciate the help. This is my first Bolo so I didn't know it was missing this part until I did some study. Near as I can tell so far the mfg. is 1921-1930. It has the Mauser Banner stamped on the left side of the frame just ahead of the safety. Serials all match #5878XX.


Hello. I'm new here.

 I'm looking for a disconnector and a trigger catch/sear or a complete trigger. I just purchased an early post war .32 commercial 1914 model with serial #254480. I took the side plate off to disassemble for a complete internal inspection and cleaning. It is missing the disconnector, part number 22 on the Numrich schematic. Also Part 23, the Trigger catch (trigger sear per Numrich- the internal pinned with spring part of the trigger assembly) has a small chunk out of its engagement face and probably should be replaced. While I can't be sure, under magnification it looks like it may have been built up with weld and then reshaped by filing but an incomplete weld build up looks like a small piece is broken out of the back corner of the catch face. The function is fine but I don't trust it. A complete trigger would be fine as well. All the other internals look very good. 

This gun is police marked with S.Me.IV.II.2. stamped on the front grip frame. The IV is has an X stamped over it.  Mr Pender's book says the Police markings are for the most part not decrypted as to what they mean. Does anyone know what these markings actually meant? It also has 1920 stamped on the left side of the slide just over the top of the Mauser address line. It is lightly stamped and not done by Mauser. On the slide there is another interesting stamp. It is very small requiring a strong magnifier to appreciate its stylized detail. If you take the slide off and hold it upside down with the front up as if you are looking at the internal surface of it, the stamping is located on the face of the righthand (as you are looking at it) slide rail so only seen with the slide off. It looks like the letter P with an M over top of it or maybe one leg of the M woven through the P. There is an incomplete one stamped on the frame also on a place not seen unless the grip is off. Possibly a milling acceptance quality control inspection stamp? I have not seen this stamp before on my other guns but this is my only police gun. Maybe it is specific to police acceptance? Any ideas on these stampings? This gun has its serial number stamped in full or partial on 5 different parts. Slide, frame, barrel, safety lever and ejector/slide lock. I have not seen this on my other guns either. Mr Pender's book says the front sight should be a ramp but it is the 1/2 moon. The barrel is correctly, un-banded per Mr Pender's book page 118.

Thanks for your help.
