Borchardt, C93, DWM, Matching, Stock, Hold-open/Oiler, 7.65mm, ANTIQUE, 2956, O-99
VG+/EXC with bright original rust blue showing sharp edge wear and handling marks from a pistol that has seen light use. The Chakkra on the backstrap, applied upon importation into Thailand, deeply struck with haloed edges. Grips slightly oil darkened with handling marks commensurate with balance of pistol. Excellent magazine and original finish on custom stock fixtures whose handling marks match the pistol. The hold- open/oiler has a hairline crack repair, seen on both sides. Mirror bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. Solid lock up to stock. A classic, early, developmental pistol, the first manufactured to use a toggle locked mechanism, and well known predecessor to the ubiquitous Luger.
