That is great but they are reporduced today as well. I know a company in the US, small family print house that specifically collects and re-prints manuals and gun catalogues for nearly all old companies.

The broomhandle was a popular pistol from before WW1 and particularly between the wars. Sold very well in China!

The fact that the Waffen SS used some early in the war was due more to shortages of smg type automatic weapons.

 

They used a version called the Schnell fuer "sp?" or "S" which could fire fully auto and could take a lrger magazine.

 

This was replaced when better supplies of MP4os became available to the SS.

 

Haven't read any complaints about the broomhandle though!

There's a few vids on You Tube of firing the C96 (forgot that's its official title) but only semi auto. I couldn't find a full auto clip.

 

The ones used by the German military in WW1 and WW2 tended to be in 9mm so had a "9" carved into the handle.

ok found one, not as much recoil as I would have thought.

No recoil on that because you are watching a video for a Maurishin Airsoft Gas Operated pistol and not the real thing! Here is a real one

I was thinking that there must be an airsoft version! Wonder how much it is?

 

De acs of the C96 were very expensive.

 

Anyone found a fully auto firing? Were (are) thet very rare?
