*◊ MAUSER C96 SIX SHOT, LAVISHLY ENGRAVED WITH MATCHING CARVED STOCK RECONFIGURED TO RESEMBLE AN EARLIER REGAL MAUSER.

SN 43164. Cal. 9mm Express. Extremely scarce C96 six shot with 4″ bbl having fixed front sight and slip-in rear sight marked 50-1000. Short extractor, 2-lug firing pin, small ring hammer. Usual chamber address with full SN on left chamber flat and C/U on left side of bbl extension. Unusual solid rails. Right side of frame with 2-line Mauser address. Bottom of floorplate with serrations. Pistol is in-the-white with elaborate and extensive custom floral engraving that covers nearly 90% of the pistol, including the front of the magazine well and frontstrap, that is highlighted with gold accented border. Fire blued small parts include the extractor, appropriate parts of the sight assembly, bolt stop, safety and trigger. Beautiful replacement grips, numbered to match the pistol, are scroll engraved and serrated. All external numbers are matching including the sight bar. Accompanied by a contemporary and impressive carved stock whose in-the-white looped hinge and matching lug have been engraved in a complimentary fashion-including the front face of the lug! PROVENANCE: The Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin Collection, Germany. CONDITION: In-the-white pistol with surface toning and chemical aging. Though the pistol was meticulously cleaned before embellishment, it is possible to see a few fine scattered pinpricks of oxidation. Bright bore with mild etching, shallow rifling. Perfect manual mechanics except for sluggish bolt return. Stock with a scattering of minor surface dings and aged to retain at least 95% of the varnish. Similar age related considerations apply to the hinge and lug. An very impressive rig made to resemble a high order, regal Mauser presentation. 49828-129 LMA (5,000-10,000) C&R – Lot 3105
