Default Any Broomhandle Mauser experts in Sonoma County

I was digging through some of my old boxes and found most of a C96 broomhandle Mauser. The hammer, sights and some internals are gone and it was obviously reblued. It has red 9 grips on it but I seriously doubt that it is a real red 9. According to the serial number it was made between 1930 and 1932. I'd like to know what I have and if it makes any sense to look for the missing parts to make it complete. Thanks

I have a C96 mixmaster that is one of my must accurate shooters. Numbers matching or a mixmaster, they are desirable. You can eventually find the parts you need. Also remove the grip panels and inspect the grip frame for rust and corrosion. The C96 grip frame is not very meaty. You don’t want it breaking off during recoil and the gun smacking you in the face. Even though the parts aren’t cheap, your gun looks like it has very good potential.

I think it would be worth finding parts and putting it back together just because they're fun to shoot.
