I Saved this C96 that was being stored in a sock in a basement... 

Good news is i caught the rust before it went too far. Fleckling .. but the price was right and the bore is in great shape. Matching down to the grips.  Internals Look New. .30 Mauser. Early 1920s Production - Post War -1920s-1930 production were Known as the "Bolo" model, slightly smaller frame than the wartime / prewar C96 due to the Treaty of Versailles restrictions.  

Medals are WW1 German / Austria-hungary

Radom Details
A polish p35 - Service adapted by the Polish military in 1935 . Once accompanied by Nazi Germany, Pistols were still produced and issued to the German arm forces. This is one of those examples.

Hello!

I see you are a contributor to Military photography group. I would like to affiliate my group arsmilitaria.deviantart.com/ with yours. Your group founder is long absent so I wonder if you can send an affiliation request from your side.

Cheers!

HEY SPAXSPORE!

I been hoping to contact you about a couple of Mosin Nagants you posted on Classic Firearms web site.  They caught my eye and now I have to refinish one of mine to mirror yours.  

Can you please tell me how you did it?  I am eager to make my beat up Nagant into a master piece like yours!
