I am not sure what you are describing, possibly the milled panel above the grip? A picture would be most helpful. Regards,

« Last post by William Hull on January 10, 2021, 02:56:08 PM »
I have a Red 9 that I can't get the lock frame stop to budge. I am sure other have had this problem in the past. Looking for advice on freeing up the stop.
Thank you

I have a 1906 8mm Mauser German Military rifle made in Oberndorf, metal tag Unit # 171.R.12.206. It has been in our family for the past 75+ years and it belonged to my grandmothers brother who fought in the Spanish American War and WW1. I inherited it in 1955.

The serial number is 4808. My question, the butt plate is marked 4808 and it also has 4 additional markings. The plate is also stamped with a "S" above the center mounting screw, above that is the number "5", and to the left of the center mounting screw is a "H"? There is also a Imperial German acceptance mark on the lower end of plate. I have never seen this on any other Mauser military weapon. Most butt plates only have the serial number.

What does the "5" stand for and what does the "H" stand for?   
C96 / C12 Broomhandle / Re: When to retire my M30 due to wear?
« Last post by on January 04, 2021, 07:32:47 PM »
As you have noted, this condition is not normal.  The only C96 pistols I have seen with this bowing have had a lot of use with a weak recoil spring, or have been fired with 7.62x25 Soviet ammo (which is too hot for a broomhandle).  This condition is serious and potentially dangerous if the bolt does not close fully due to the bowing.  You need to have this checked by someone who knows what they are looking at.  I have corrected this problem before by TIG welding the bolt window and removing enough of the bowing to ensure the bolt engages the locking block fully.  Happy to look at it for you if you bring it to me in New Hampshire.  (There would be no charge, since I'm a retired gunsmith)
