C96 / C12 Broomhandle / C96 Broomhandle Strap Marking
« Last post by DeCeCo on August 10, 2022, 04:11:08 PM »
Can anyone determine the interpretation of the marking found on the back strap of a Broomhandle Mauser I have interest in?  It reads Gf 31.  It is an early Model 30 in the 850000 serial number range.  Could this marking influence the value of this gun?

Thank you for your comment. Iím not looking to sell it. Just trying to determine if it was in fact owned by Bill. Iíll shoot it and enjoy. Maybe one day Iíll find the truth about this gun. If I can take a deer with it Iíll be tickled.
Apparently not. I am sure someone might be interested as you are. I am sure Bill Cody was gifted all sorts of arms during the tour of the Wild West show along with firearm he was know to have owned. Possibly he was gifted this in Europe. There is the Buffalo Bill Museum that may be able to authenticate this particular rifle to Bill. Without that no collector is going to pay for a story and the certificate accompanying the auction is not sufficient provenance to effect the price. Regards,

So no one has anything of interest to comment on this M71? I would think someone here might have so knowledge on this rifle. Any thoughts welcome.

An interesting new book has been published in German.
By a former Oberndorf resident who now resides in Australia.

The fact that the author is not a gun enthusiast and a former Oberndorf resident means she takes a look at Mauser from a different angle.

Also not a lot of detailed info on the early Mauser years has been published in German, so in that sense alone it is a welcomed addition.

Although many of the subjects have been touched in earlier publications, she did a great job in bringing the main connections and international networks together.

There are some omissions, to be expected, but the general overview is correct.
If you can read German and are interested in the corporate politics and international connections between 1870 and 1914, this is a good place to start.

The author is Heidi Zogbaum
