C96 pistol, Germany 1896


Reproduction of a pistol, made of metal, with wooden grips and stock, with simulating mechanism of loading and firing.

Within the wide range of short weapons, the C-96 has the honor of bearing the name "classic", also known as "Broomhandle". It was a semiautomatic pistol produced in Germany from 1896 to 1937, created by the great Peter Paul Mauser. This semiautomatic pistol, with more than a century of history, has an extremely functional and practical design that has become to be recognized as one of the best weapons in the world.

The German army received more than 100,000 units, which they used during World War I, in which abounded the fights at short distance in the trenches. The Communist Russia acquired large quantities of C-96. These weapons ended up receiving the nickname of "Bolo-Mauser", that is, the Mauser of the Bolsheviks. When World War II began in 1939, the C-96 was still active.

Although no country recognized it as their regulatory weapon, it was used in all the warlike events that arose in the first half of the twentieth century.
