12/21/15 - Consignment - This is a super nice Mauser "SHANSEI" broomhandle pistol in .45 ACP, in pretty much ANIB(as new in box) condition, with just a few handling marks as per pictures. Originally, these were made in the 30s, as a 45 acp round became popular in China during the ongoing wars. The whole gun was a scaled up version of German C96 Broomhandle. Another batch was made in the 70s and a limited number (probably around 1000 - 2000) was imported in to US at that time. This particular gun is a part of the latter batch and is an impressive weapon to behold! It has Chinese kanji markings on both sides and a cool serial number - 1948. All the numbers match. Mint bore and grips. Tiny import mark(all of them have it) on the front strap. Comes with beautiful canvas case that fits the gun perfectly. 45 calibers Chinese broomhandles are very uncommon and a vast majority is in collections and rarely come up for sale. This is a great opportunity to acquire one in spectacular condition.
