C96 / C12 Broomhandle / When to retire my M30 due to wear?
« on: November 19, 2020, 06:41:39 PM »
  I have 4 images in the link below showing wear near the slide stop on my M30.

  A pair of images shows a straight-edge against both sides of the rear of the barrel extension, one side is straight but the bolt stop side shows slight bowing. The other two pictures show a little peening in the slide stop opening.

  If anyone knows how to judge if a C96 is past its shooting lifetime please look and comment. Thanks!

P.S. I don't yet know how to put the image directly into my posts, any advice appreciated.

Hello from a new poster in eastern Colorado!

Thanks to all the forum members for posting about your guns, the history behind them, and how to maintain them.

About 20 years ago I found this M30 in an antique gun store and picked it up for $295. I think a bargain at the time.
It is in the 886xxx range with all matching serial numbers and the "made in Germany" Chinese characters. The barrel has decent rifling.
I haven't fired it in 20 years, but I just replaced the hammer and recoil springs and I plan to take it to a range shortly with some of the old ammo I collected over the years.
