    SHAWANG!!!!!!!! Love it!! I have the M1930 version but have always wanted to get a Red 9. It looks to be in excellent condition. Is the stock/holster matching to the pistol?

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    A WWI Red 9 Broomhandle with the shoulder stock, leather hanger and tools-and all in great shape! Not one of the crude black re-blues that you see so often! How does it shoot? It looks excellent!

    This book I have "Know Your Broomhandle Mauser" by RJ Berger. Say's in 1916 the Mauser factory was given a contract for 150,000 M96's in 9mm. At war's end over 136,000 were made and that the serial #'s for these started at #1 .
    So you can tell by your serial # where it fall's in the production time frame of these fine pistol's. I wonder if the leather date stamp of 1917 will also be a clue to its production date.

    Awesome looking setup!!!!
