Also known in a variety of other names including the, Mauser C96, M96, Mauser Bolo, Broomhandle, Large Mauser pistol, Pistole 7.63 and Model 1930.

It was characterized by it's 5.5 inch barrel, standard sized grips, 10-round fixed magazine fed by magazine stripper clips and a tangent rear sight, usually marked 50-1000 yards. The pistol fired an 85 grain bullet at 1400 feet per second through a 1 in 8 inch barrel twist.


The first successful prototype was dated 15th March 1895 and on 11th December 1895, its German patent was issued. Then during 1896 some 110 pre production pistols were made. Full scale production of the pistol started in April 1897. With only a slight interruption after 1918, production of the Broomhandle Mauser continued until the late 1930's.
