C96 / C12 Broomhandle / A question on C96 stocks
« on: March 02, 2022, 03:37:09 PM »
I read somewhere that late production C96 pistol stocks did not have serial numbers. The stock that came with my dad's newly acquired pistol has no serial number. What puzzles me is his gun is NOT a late production gun, its serial number dates it to 1905.

Should his guns stock have a serial number?

Thank you

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Trying to find a pistol
« on: January 21, 2022, 02:13:53 AM »
Hello all, I'm hoping the fine people on this forum can help me with a task my father has set me on. My dad has asked me to find him a nice collector grade C96 pistol. While he does want the ability to shoot the gun, it will serve primarily as an investment/display pistol and won't be fired much.

He is looking for a good condition, unrestored pistol, that has military acceptance markings. Numbers need to be matching and of course the shoulder stock must be in good condition.

Now I have been doing a bit of reading and watching videos on the subject but, am far from knowledgeable when it comes to military surplus. But it seems like most/all of the pistols on gunbroker and gunsinternational are either incomplete, non-matching, or have been restored.  Do you have any suggestions on where I might be able to find a pistol for my dad?

thank you
