Mauser Revolvers / Re: Mauser revolvers 1980 - 1998

I have the Mauser Hunter with 6 inch barrel.  It came into a San Antonio TX gun show complete with box and papers.  Fun gun to shoot.  I checked the Kora site.  One of their most intresting guns is a carbine version of their 22 revovler.  A revolving rifle in 22 has to be just puddles of fun to shoot.  Pity they don't import it.

C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Model 1930 SN Location

A friend has a Model 1930, SN 892XXX.  The serial  number is on the left vertical flat on the chamber.  My Model 1930, SN 913XXX, has the SN on the top of the barrel extgension, at the extreme rear, just under the sight leaf of the rear sight.   Otherwise the pistols are identical in marking and configuration.   The 1930s I've seen all have the SN at the rear.  Anyone know when Mauser moved it?
Speaking of serial numbers, his stock with the Mauser logo does not have a serial number on the attaching iron.  One stock of mine with the Mauser logo has the serial number, the other does not.  Does anyone know when Mauser stopped stamping the serial numbers on the stocks?
