Standard configuration LR Shallow Milled with 5.5” barrel having fixed front sight and slip-in tangent rear sight graded from 50-1000. Long extractor, single lug firing pin. Top of chamber with three line Mauser address. Left flat with full serial number. Left side of barrel extension with C/C/U proofing; the right side with Antler acceptance. Last of the C96s to not have any frame markings on the right side. Full serial number or last three matching digits on all usual parts, including the firing pin, bolt stop, locking block and each of the grip panels, the right grip lightly penciled with the initials JHM dated 1/4/1960. Lanyard ring present. Condition: EXC original rust blued finish, crisp, on all major components with sharp edge wear and thinning over the usual sharp edges and the backstrap where in contact with the stock lug. Fire blued extractor, cursor, sight bar, bolt stop, safety and grip screw in commensurate condition. Similar considerations apply to the strawed trigger. Grips retain most of their original varnish with a few scattered handling marks. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. One of the scarcest early C96s that was only made in a very narrow serial range. A super gun! If you want to improve upon this example, it will be a long search. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
