Near excellent original finish with most major components rust blued. Hammer, trigger, and screws strawed. Safety fire blued. Finely checkered grips.
Excellent original condition standard configuration late Bergmann M1896 No. 3 with lugged barrel, short flute, extractor, and full grip.
At least 95% original rust blue with holster and handling wear in expected places, front strap with touchup. Comparable condition small parts, the straw on the hammer and trigger and the fire blued safety still brilliant, that show no evidence of enhancement. Original grips with blunted checkering, no splits or appreciable losses. Mirror bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. A beautiful late Bergmann M1896 No.3 that should please any collector of early automatic pistols. ANTIQUE. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
