This broomhandle replica is a unique gun. It is also known under a variety of other names, including C96, M96, Bolo, P-7.63, Broomhandle, Mauser Military Pistol, Large Mauser pistol, Pistole 7.63, and the Model 1930. The C96 was the first efficient and reliable design for a self-loading pistol. An outstanding feature of the design was the absence of pins or screws in its construction. The design is based upon the frame being milled out from a solid forging. A non-firing copy of the Mauser original. This piece replicates the original in size, weight, and appearance, and the parts function much like the original. However, parts cannot be interchanged or the replica made to fire ammunition. This is a realistic replica of the first successful automatic pistol. This pistol was a favorite of Winston Churchill. While commonly carried by field troops in WWII, the Mauser has since been made famous in countless WWII movies.
