Mauser C96 Schnellfeuer ( full Automatic pistol)
100% Original and to Museum Standard
This Mauser C96 is in 100% Original condition and was referred to as the "Schnellfeuer" meaning “fast fire”. Other designations that it was given are the M1932 or M712.
It was in production from 1932 – 1936 with around 100,000 made. Though it was originally meant for export to South America, China, and Spain, many never shipped and instead were used by the German Wehrmacht during World War II, being designated as the M712. Because it was a non standard firearm and calibre (7.63mm) the German's issued them to the Waffen SS and other Nazi paramilitary organisations.
They were hugely popular within these groups and units and were used to great effect throughout WWII, and along with the PO8 Luger, the Schnellfeuer was a very popular bring back by Allied troops.
This example dates to the mid 1930s and was built during the Nazis secret rearmament program.
This is not to be confused with the poor condition Chinese stamped examples on the market.
Deactivated very sympathetically with a working action it can be cocked. stripped and dry fired.
This is a very rare piston and is to Museum Standard
