Chinese copy of an Early Post-War Mauser Bolo in 7.63mm.
Good as redipped/reblued. Scattered pitting as photographed. Comparable condition grips. Dull eroded bore with very shallow rifling. Excellent manual mechanics, though in full cock, hammer needs to be slightly retracted to engage safety. If you want a nice gun or one to fire on the range, this is not for you. A very representative Chinese Warlord pistol. SOLD AS A HISTORIC ARTIFACT. NOT TO BE FIRED! NOT TO BE FIRED! NOT TO BE FIRED!
