Hi Keitho. Let's see some pics.

I have owned many "Broomahandles" over the years and the variants are staggering.

Many have been re-done with new barrels and such. A good friend who is a fairly knowledgeable collector recently got burned (a bit) when he bought a C96 that was mis-represented. Turned out to have been "restored" and re-barreled. But it was beautiful.

I always use Photobucket. There is probably a Sticky about up-loading pics, but I'm not sure.

I can't tell you much about value but history....

The design has been around since 1896
They are usually chambered in 9mm Luger or .30 cal Luger(more common)
To show the difference in the calibers the 9mm versions have a 9 cut into the wood grips and painted red, hince one of its nicnames were the "Red Nine"
Removable stock/holsters are available
Used in WW1 by German and Austrian private purchases
Some models had a removable magazine and/or selective fire capabilities
There are carbine variants out there but not as common
Produced by Waffenfabrik Mauser but there are alot of Chinese copies out there

I took a look at your pistol, its in GREAT shape! Is it all original?

yes all original ---when the guy wanted to sell to me I could not believe it was in such good shape--no rust --no dings --no scratches --the bluing is perfect--the seller said he got it from an uncle who died and had it stored in a closet in a really old house.--do you know anything about the value?

Actually, the other caliber was .30 Mauser- longer than the .30 Luger. About the same round as the Russian Tokarev. Action tends to be a subtle as a door slamming- but I would have LOVED to have had one of the full auto versions. I think there are some Chinese modern copies floating out there, so do be careful.

Keitho, the pics are interesting. Who made your Broomhandle?

The detachable mag variants are very uncommon.
