Details

The Mauser C96 nicknamed "broomhandle" because of the obvious resemblance of the grip to the handle of a broom. They are nice collector pieces and their value ranges widely based off condition, market, and variation.

The gun itself was first designed in 1894-1895 and is for all comparative purposes a very strange gun. Not only does it look like someone cut, drilled, and mounted a broom handle as a grip, but it also comes with a wooden stock that can be attached to the rear of the gun in order to give it the stability of a rifle. Strange indeed.

But for all it's somewhat eccentric values this gun is again very popular with collectors. It truly is a unique piece to add to any collection.

We tried to do an estimation on the prices based of what a few shops were selling them for and also what they were going for online. This value swung widely. If you have any input of the prices please just suggest a change.
