Standard configuration LR Shallow Milled with 5.5” barrel having fixed front sight and tangent rear sight graded from 50-1000. Long extractor, single lug firing pin. Top of chamber with three line Mauser address. Left flat with full serial number. Left side of barrel extension with C/C/U proofing; the right side with Antler acceptance. Last of the C96s to not have any frame markings on the right side. Full serial number or last three matching digits on all usual parts, including the firing pin, bolt stop, locking block and each of the grip panels. Lanyard ring present.
Very nice, all original and matching Mauser C96, Large Ring Shallow Milled, no import marks.
VG-EXC original rust blued finish on all major components with sharp edge wear and thinning in areas of stock contact and handling. Front and back straps with patina as photographed. Fire blued extractor, cursor, sight bar, bolt stop, safety and grip screw in commensurate condition. Similar considerations apply to the strawed trigger. Grips retain much of their original varnish with a scattering of superficial dings and bruises. Dull bore with easily discernible rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. One of the scarcest early C96s that was only made in a very narrow serial range. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
