Did this video help you?

Ijaz Tahirkheli: this could be useful

Matthew Wong: Hey I m getting a c96 bolo like yours in the video and I noticed your bolt extension hole for the bolt stop is slightly deformed (probably from hot ammo?) mine is like that as well and I was wondering if you had any problems with shooting it?

TaZ101SAGA: Very interesting firearm

MosinDragunov1891: In the US, unless you are licensed and registered to manufacture/modify a firearm's working action into full auto, it is highly illegal. Often just owning the part which makes a firearm full auto is a felony.

elgorro1970: Wow, quiet impressive video, Thanks

MosinDragunov1891: @Crim15 Hardly any parts are matching, but the serial number the gun is registered with is from around the 1920's I believe.

MuffpuffZ: How much would a C96 cost? I plan on getting one in a few years ;)

Crim15: @MosinDragunov1891 Wicked..

MosinDragunov1891: @rodinal220 I wanted to have some nice music in the background, but I couldn't find anything that would compliment the video, so I figured that the sound of the parts was good enough. =) I have some old 1900-1910's 7.63x25mm SP ammo kicking about and it has a very heavy crimp which pretty much pushes into the nickel jacket.

J. Young: Thanks for making this!

Patria Nostra: How about an external battery pack ?

LtBriJMAC: Damn dats a sexy gun

MosinDragunov1891: @WestFordAlan Any very narrow flathead screwdriver. The original screwdriver packaged with the pistol had a semi-circle shaped head, as opposed to the flat point on a flathead screwdriver.

MosinDragunov1891: @Crim15 I bought it at a local shop about a year ago. It's been rechambered and rebarreled for 9x19mm so the rifling is "like-new". I bought it for around $450 and am now considering trading it in for credit towards a new rifle.

BusterdBodycrab: @MosinDragunov1891 There are a number of military weapons that use the bullet tips as the preferred tool for take down or sight adjustment. And No. Using military grade ammunition will not push the round in to the casing. Military ammunition is crimped. Most quality commercial ammunition is also tamper crimped with a factory crimp. Otherwise, just the action of the round being fed and chambered from a clip or magazine will push the bullet into the casing.

Matthew Wong: Should there be any up down movement on the bolt stop along with the normal back to front?

Crim15: How old's this particular gun?

m riggs: I bought a C96 .30 cal. about 15 years ago, and never did figure out how to fully field strip and clean the gun, I usually only got partially disassembled and had a really hard time reassembling it! Thanks for the video, I'm going to get that gun out and give it a proper cleaning right now.

MosinDragunov1891: @m1garand44 That sucks man. At least you have a goal to work towards now, you've got to save up for your own. Maybe keep it to pass onto your children.

1337fraggzb00N: dunno :D

MosinDragunov1891: Thanks, that was the goal with this video. I hadn't seen anyone even try to make a disassembly video and while there were good text instructions with pictures, there were no videos I could find.

lowikuken: nice video man .. old guns is the best

MosinDragunov1891: @dan13718 That's your opinion. You're welcome to express it.

gamermanatwar1995: man i wish i own that gun

MosinDragunov1891: @camerl2009 I don't know what else to say, that's exactly the "tool" suggested in the original Mauser manual. Granted, it was for the original 7.63mm Mauser round and all the rounds I have are crimped pretty tight (I actually have some 7.63mm rounds from the early 1900's).

Antifashistsky Soprotivleniye: @MosinDragunov1891 LOL That was just friggin' awesome. The machinery in that gun looks it it was made by a Swiss watchmaker. There is nothing like it in it's class. The Mauser C-96 is the Lefeucheaux of automatic weapons. (Lefeucheaux is a 19th century French pinfire revolver, some had 20-round cylinders and were very unusual for their day)

1337fraggzb00N: Here in Germany we have some weird laws: we are allowed to own the parts, but it´s forbidden to use them. That´s not specifically for guns, a few years ago it was allowed to own Radios that were able to receive police frequencies but it was forbidden to insert batteries *lol*

Fraggr92: I'm guessing you don't fire it since the internals appear to be pretty much bone-dry.

Lawrence Rhodes: Compared to the average modern military firearm, older weapons are much simpler.

MosinDragunov1891: It was rebarrelled to 9x19mm by the previous owner.

Protherium: Really impressive to see a different lock system beyond all the Browning and Beretta. I'm a Glock fan, but I would really like to have a C96.

akagruntkiller: thnk u good sir this video was a good watch just to make sure i didnt break anything on my new 1896 mauser thats right, well at least the frame and barrel. this isnt complicated its like 6 parts... i can disassemble mine with out looking now thanks to this deliberately slow and well made video. i love the fact you didn't add lame music the sound of this metal frame snapping together is music to my ears just like the sound of it firing

sephirot133: is this full auto?

Lawrence Rhodes: Nope, it's too expensive to manufacture this firearm. If any replicas were to be made, they'd only be slightly lower in price than the original historic ones, and who would buy a replica for the same price as a historic firearm when those are available for a few bucks more?

m1garand44: Thanks for that video! I actually don't have the C96, My father sold it :( But it's always good to know how to disassemble a nice gun like that :D

MosinDragunov1891: No, the C-96 was not full auto.

MosinDragunov1891: @Protherium Well, it's an early solution to a complicated problem. Not the simplest, but definitely the most beautiful in it's complexity.

strikeme5: dang why are all the old weapons so complicated to disassemble

NormanMatchem: Stellar video. To think when this pistol design was completed, semi autos were nigh unheard of, the M1895 was state of the art, the M1891 was still a very young rifle, and there were more Lee Metfords than Lee Enfields. Hollow points were allowed in the military, new-fangled bolt action rifles were beginning to become more prominent, and black powder was still widely used. Fascinating. Mind if I ask when that gorgeous piece of history was manufactured?

Anureet Singh: @strikeme5 its not that complicated as it looks . the gentleman who demonstrated the dis-assembly did everything on purpose so that those who do know how to clean it may learn to do so. I hav a c96 (Germany made) of 1917. My grandpa brought it from germany in 1917 when he went there as a part of the royal british army from India during WW-l, it is still with me and has nvr given any kinda trouble since I inherited it 10 years ago.

910burns: Good lord that was complicated.

2StrokeKaiser: It is'nt Full-Auto. The Full Auto Version was produced in the late 1930's an was called M712 an had a removable Mag..... This one is definitely a C96. And Guy: Please don't call the old germans "Nazi's" This word is a defamation for every normal and correct german. ;)

hummerskickass: @heretic1915 he is useing a dummy round they chamber and act the same way a live round would but they dont fire. there useful for doing a complet funtion check on a gun you just worked on

SweGunner71: Oh my, all those parts... and here I hesitate to break down my 1911. :)

BulletShogun: i want one.... do any companies reproduce this gun?

MosinDragunov1891: Honestly, I'm not terribly sure. I've been seeing a few pop up in my area between $600 and $1,000 in good condition. I guess you should expect to pay between $500 and $1,500?

mike senn: Great video. The first time that I took mine apart for cleaning was easy. Thank goodness for the internet as a reference for when I got stuck putting it back together. I had to follow an excellent textual description on reassembly. This video would have helped back then.

shootmyhorse: i got one but never thought about taking it apatr til i saw this vid, thank you very much!

BryanReaper: Just got a c-96 it rocks. thanks 4 making this video its going 2 help alot in the cleaning of my gun.

Rudolf Dubrovszky: THANK YOU THANK YOU. I just purchased a C96 in the 700000 range in good condition. Will be getting it relined at redman. Thanks so much
