This is a rare antique firearm -- Mauser Broomhandle Early Transitional Large Ring Hammer made in 1898, caliber 30 Mauser (i.e. 7,63x25mm). Mauser made fewer than 3000 of these in serial range 12000-15000, serial number mixed with well-known Conehammer C96, but it's rarer than Standard Conehammer due to fewer of this variation were made. Like conehammer, the bolt can be locked by the hammer to make clip-less cartridge loading easier (see picture).
Condition: All original finish, all matching, in very good plus condition. The left side of the barrel losts some blue (see pictures) showing mixture of patina and bare metal, no rust, no pits. The bore is very good as well. The action is tight and crisp. Mechanically excellent.
This is a Pre-1899 Antique Firearm. No FFL required.
I guarantee my items being as described, and I honor 3-day non-firing inspection and return policy on all my collector items.
[Edit] The gun comes with a mismatched but period correct early Mauser wood stock. Stock serial number 13326 falls into this variation's serial range.
The stock is in fair shape, with a few cracks repaired by someone long time ago, and the stock door has a chip on the hammer side, but the stock is very serviceable and fits this antique C96 perfectly (see pictures)
