7/31/19 - This is a mint example of an early variation M1930 Mauser C96 pistol, chambered in hard hitting .30 Mauser, and made in the early 30s. Unlike its later variations, this gun still has fire blued small parts and the lightening grooves in the rails on both sides of the barrel extension. It appears in near new condition, with just a hint of wear on the high edges - mainly on the tips of the rails of the barrel extension. The bluing is magnificent - deep and lustrous - without any spotting, freckling or discoloration. The fireblued parts (extractor, safety, rear sight cursor and bolt stop) retain nearly all of the original, vivid color. The gun is all matching with mint bore and grips. The original “Mauser Banner” marked shoulder stock is equally nice with no cracks. An original “Schrok” maker marked leather harness in excellent condition completes this beautiful rig. An impossible to upgrade, near new example.
