Chinese C96 as assembled with a mix-master of parts. The top barrel assembly, with banded front sight, is unmarked except for the very large four digits ‘4260’. Fitted with short extractor, slip-in 50-1000 rear sight, and dual lug firing pin. Mated to an original Mauser Bolo frame. Polished, unnumbered bolt stop. Different numbers on both subframe and frame. No disassembly was performed. Fitted with broadly serrated grips secured with a single large-headed transverse screw. Lanyard ring present.
Chinese Warlord era C96 Long Barrel Bolo, unusual configuration.
Generally good with original finish showing considerable wear and handling as photographed. Shallow indentations on each side of magazine wall. Dull/dark bore with shallow rifling. Good manual mechanics with the safety indexing properly. That said, THE GUN IS NOT DEEMED AS SAFE TO SHOOT. One of the more unusual C96s to emerge from the 30+ years of Chinese Warlord chaos.
