Are you talking about the 7.63 x 25mm Mauser, 9 x 19mm Parabellum, 9mm Mauser Export (which is pretty rare), 8.15 Mauser, 7.65 x 22mm Parabellum, or the Chinese .45 ACP model C96 Mauser pistol?

I know that the barrel length for the longest model is 5.5 inches. I'm just wondering how you are getting your 4 inch groupings at 100 yards. I'm not trying to disprove you or anything, I'm just curious that's all. Did you have some type of optics, the shoulder stock, or did you use open sights?

Just curious because that's really good shooting out of a 5.5 inch barrel, and I want to know the trick. The sig P210 can average a 3-4 inch group at 50 yards, and I think that is outstanding for a pistol.

P.S. What is the rifling on that pistol? Did Mauser use a specific rifling to coax the needed accuracy out of the rounds to achieve good groupings at 50-100 yards (I know the sig p210 is running about a 1 in 9 twist, but it's a little closer actually to a 1 in 10 twist)?

We will have to disagree my friend a 210 will shoot the pants off just about everything out of the box from my experience.........

I'll pass on shooting more revolvers.

At the private outdoor range I'm a member at, the revolver shooters don't fare too well against my 5" Kimber 1911. I've made them look bad on more than one occasion.

No, actually most of them are younger guys who shoot more than I do.

I shoot more accurately than most of the revolver guys at the range, and they don't stand a chance when it comes to rapid-fire.

It is amazing how this thread as turned into a "My Richard is bigger than your Richard" thread.

Go and buy what ever 1911 you want and be happy.

go over to http://www.1911forum.com/ They can be a little uppity at times but the knowladge of the 1911 floating around over there is amazing. You will see some damn good 1911 smiths over there as well. good luck with your 1911.

OK....spoil sport, it was just getting interesting, I was about to ask how long Defender had been shooting with his local Ladies Knitting Circle, humour would be extremely therapeutic as this lad takes life a little too seriously, and I so enjoy his posts..............................

What is a C-96 is it a pistol, forgive me I dont know much more then 1911,2011, and a few revolver numbers and names, but I read in this reallly long gun bashing thread somewhere about a C-96 of hand 4 inch group at 100 yards, I am really sorry but I do not believe that, and the only C-96 I can think of was called a broomhandle and I had one for many years my uncle brought back from Germany after WW2, the one I had shot a 30 cal mauser if I remember correctly.

C-96??? I saw that on a food ration label once... or it could have been the name of a movie. I forget now.

Yes you are right it was originally chambered for the 7.63 mm (or 30 Mauser), and neither do I, thanks to MarkF for the picture, a 'Red Nine' but same horse different colour, and if that one is yours you are a very lucky fellow.........
