    Here is a pretty nice example of a 7.63mm caliber C/96 Broomhandle pistol from my meager collection. It has all matching serial numbers, has no import marks and the bore is still in excellent condition. I bought it many years ago and I have always really liked the lines and look of this particular model of pistol. According to my reference documentation and the serial number being 893,3XX, this gun appears to have been made in 1933.

    Beautiful shape! I have always loved the looks of the broom handles. They have such great balance-they Feel good in your hand and are absolutely smooth to fire and handle. It's a shame that the ammunition for this calibre is so hard to come by! Which probably explains why the Red 9's are so horribly expensive! William

    William, thanks for the kind words. We are kindred spirits when it comes to these cool pistols. FYI. Field stripping them is a real hoot as they are made like Chinese puzzles. I have never shot nor plan to shoot my C/96 so ammunition availability is not a problem for me.

    I've never fired a full auto one with the shoulder stock,but I'd sure love to! Great guns,the brooms-even Churchill carried one in the Boer war. William
