Paul Mauser His Life, Company, and Handgun Development 1838-1914

Post by dynachrome »

Just received my copy of this book. Large data base with many copies/translations of documents related to the Mauser company. Expensive, but well worth it, IMHO. It will take quite awhile to digest the info in it.

(not my review, I have not reviewed it yet)

"ByBill Simson November 25, 2017
Verified Purchase
As a collector of the C-96 for over 30 years and the owner of all major books on the C-96 this book is the Crown Jewel, there is a great amount of new information that I have not seen in print in English on the C-96 and its creation and on thru the death of Paul Mauser. The color pictures are outstanding, there are photos I have never seen before. This is a true must have in you want to know about the early days of the C-96. Now someone must complete the C-96 story from 1912 to 1933. I recommend this book to all Mauser pistol collectors or any one interested in C-96 lovers.
