Mauser C96 Broomhandle Pistol RED NINE also known as the Rot neun or Rot 9.
Beautifully made (hand fitted) European walnut pistol grip with brass escutcheon
and salt blued steel screw for the C96 Wartime Commercial "Red 9" 9mm Pistol.
The Red 9 signifies that the pistol is calibrated for 9mm and not 7.63mm.
This variant of the C96 was named the "Red 9", after a large number "9" burned
and painted in red into the grip panels, to warn the pistols' users not to
incorrectly load them with 7.63 mm ammunition.
