    Strewth mate! Imagine explaining that to the missus! "Is that a gun in your pocket.........?" I'd rather not talk about it and don't get excited unless you're comfortable about the bank statement love!

    Arundel Militaria sold one of these a few years ago which had an excellent provenance to it. I think it sold for around 4,500. And I once picked up a Bergmann 'Mars' which was mint - but with magazine missing. I won't embarrass the dealer who sold it to me by revealing his name. But sufficient to say, he obviously didn't realise what he had, and I obtained it for a few hundred pounds.

    Not really sure Lew, just going by what its says on the advert but in theory being obsolete calibre there should be no need for deactivation

    It used the 7.6525mm Borchardt cartridge specifically developed by Borchardt for the C-93.

    7.65mm Borchardt (left) with 7.6325mm Mauser (right) for comparison.

    The below Borchardt in fine condition and with a shoulder stock was for sale for $55K in 2012 in Cali.

    Compare the finish with the Borchardt pics below it.

    Holy s**tness!! It exists! [Archive] - Calguns.net

    I don't know much about rare guns, but there are some very dodgy helmets on that site.
